The test score can also be leveraged to determine eligibility into specific training programs such as navigator, pilot and students in technical training as well as officers in general. Cadets on scholarships are required to take and perform well on the AFOQT.
Like its counterparts for the other US Armed Forces, the AFOQT is used to predict aptitudes for applicants prior to selection.
