How are the RAF Tests used?
Applying to the RAF is a process that takes several months from initial application through to acceptance. The staged selection process involves interviews, a fitness test, and of course, aptitude tests. The tests that you are asked to take will depend upon the particular RAF career that you are applying for: officer, non-commissioned aircrew or airman/airwoman. If you pass the RAF Airman Selection Test you will progress to the next recruitment stage – the health assessment.
