The Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) is the leading military technological institution in Nigeria that provides both undergraduate and postgraduate education to officers of the Nigerian Air Force and eligible civilians.

In this detailed guide, I cover everything you need to know about qualifying and securing admission into AFIT for the 2023/2024 academic year.

AFIT Kaduna Aggregate Score for all Courses


AFIT offers a wide range of degree courses including Aeronautical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Mechatronic Engineering, and more. It also offers various National Diploma (ND) courses in fields like Aircraft Technician Engineering, Avionics Technology, and others.

As of November 2023, AFIT has set a minimum aggregate score of 43 for all courses offered in the institute.

This means candidates must score a minimum aggregate of 43 in their post-UTME screening to be eligible for admission.

However, candidates should aim to score higher than the minimum 43 aggregate to increase their chances of admission.

Below is a breakdown of the minimum UTME and post-UTME cut-off marks set by AFIT:

It is important to note that these are just the baseline scores. The actual cut-off marks are determined after the post-UTME screening exercise is completed based on the number of available slots and the overall performance of candidates. Those with higher scores will have a higher chance of gaining admission.

Eligibility Criteria for AFIT Admission

To be eligible for admission into AFIT, candidates must meet the following basic requirements:

Academic Qualifications

  • For degree courses – Candidates must have a minimum of 5 credits including English Language, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and any other science subject in their SSCE/GCE O’ Level or equivalent.
  • For ND courses – Candidates must have a minimum of 5 credits including English Language, Mathematics, Physics, and any other 2 science subjects in their SSCE/GCE O’ Level or equivalent.

Age Limit

  • Candidates should not be more than 22 years for degree courses and not more than 24 years for ND courses as of October 1st in the year of application.


  • Candidates must be Nigerian citizens by birth.

Physical Fitness

  • All candidates must be certified medically fit by an NAF medical team before gaining admission.


  • In addition, candidates must have sat for and obtained a minimum score (see table above) in the relevant subjects in their UTME examinations.

AFIT Post-UTME Screening

After meeting the basic entry requirements above, candidates will be invited for the post-UTME screening exercise. This comprises:

Aptitude Test

This tests candidates’ critical thinking abilities including:

  • Verbal reasoning
  • Quantitative reasoning
  • Abstract reasoning
  • Mechanical comprehension
  • Pattern recognition

Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics Exams

Candidates take exams testing their understanding of O’Level concepts in these subjects.

Oral Interview

Candidates respond to questions testing their:

  • Communication skills
  • Confidence
  • Knowledge of current affairs
  • Individual talents/skills

Based on candidates’ total scores in the post-UTME screening, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) will select and offer provisional admission to the highest scoring candidates that have met the set cut-off marks.

The number of candidates admitted depends on the carrying capacity of AFIT for that academic year.

Preparing for the AFIT Post-UTME Screening

To adequately prepare for the post-UTME screening exercise, candidates should:

  • Study past entrance exam questions – These help you understand the structure and nature of questions to expect. AFIT usually recycles questions from previous years with some modifications.
  • Take mock tests – This helps assess your readiness and identify areas needing more attention. Mock tests simulate the real exam setting.
  • Review key science subjects – Revise Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics concepts from your O’Level syllabus. Having a strong grasp of basics is essential.
  • Improve mental math skills – For math-related questions, you need to calculate accurately under pressure so practice mental math speed.
  • Keep up with current affairs – Read reputable newspapers, listen to news and research events happening nationally and globally.
  • Attend coaching classes (if possible) – Guidance from those familiar with AFIT entrance exams can prove invaluable.

Thorough preparation using comprehensive materials and targeted practice will help improve your scores in the post-UTME.


Gaining admission into AFIT requires great effort and exceeding set benchmarks. While AFIT has stipulated a 43 aggregate score as minimum for all courses in the 2023/2024 admission exercise, higher scores guarantee better prospects. Meeting eligibility criteria, solid preparation and stellar performance in the post-UTME screening will bring you closer to an AFIT admission.
