AFCAT 1 2014 Paper Structure

  • Total questions: 100
  • Maximum Marks: 300
  • Each Question: 3 Marks
  • Negative Marking: -1 for every wrong answer
AFCAT 1 2014 question paper consist of four different sections, i.e. English, Maths, GK and Military Aptitude. 

Difficulty Level of AFCAT 1 2014 Questions

  • General Awareness: GK questions were moderate and a mix of history, sports, defence, polity etc. Few questions were simple enough to score but overall most of the candidates might not expect much from GK section.
  • Verbal Ability in English: This section was not that easy this time, starting from the comprehension passage which was not asked directly and had some difficulty, synonyms and antonyms were strong and so on. Overall one can score more than enough marks from this section.
  • Numerical Ability: Maths section was an old story, a regular AFCAT candidate can judge that all questions were similar to previous papers and there was nothing new. With little practice of previous question papers, one can score almost 100% in this section. 
  • Reasoning and Military Aptitude Test: This section was easy this time, it was divided into many parts and candidates must have faced few questions with new pattern. Shockingly, few questions were repeated from last AFCAT papers. Overall this was the easiest part in the whole AFCAT 1 2014

            hi sanjiv,
            how is the ssb process conducted, and how will the ssb form group if people give different dates of preference from April to September….?

          • harsha gandi

            i got 139 marks qualified in written test can i kindly know what are the highest marks secured in afcat 2014

        • Zechx

          I am also a final year student. Looking at previous years result declarations, according to me it takes approximately two months to publish the result.
          Although I am also expecting my end semester examinations in May, but Airforce keeps into consideration the examination of various universities. In worst case you would likely be called for selection during your exam gaps (Holidays between your examinations).
          Best of luck.

    • Amit Sharma

      with these many correct answers you can easily make it to SSB interview i must say but maths section had some questions which put enormous stress on the mind….do u think so?

      • Muraliraj

        i felt the maths part beginning questions were difficult and time consuming but overall i attempted 92 qns, found around 10 wrong answers from among discussed here… further expecting 10 to 15 more wrong answers… fearful bt the no. of wrong hits…. on worst case i may get around175…

  • mohit raj

  • prashast

    hello i am getting around 142 marks will i make this time??

  • Murali Ramakrishnan

    Guys, while shading my AFCAT number, i made a small mark in a wrong circle before realising it. Then i marked the correct circle. I didnt shade the wrong circle fully but just a slight mark was made. The invigilator refused to give me a second sheet. So i shaded the correct boxes and did my exam very well and submitted. Am pretty sure i will qualify but will my paper be evaluated? Pls reply!

    • Muraliraj

      i think on worst case only that question will be taken wrong or not evaluated…

      • Murali Ramakrishnan

        No, i didn’t mark the answer wrong. I shaded my AFCAT number wrong! Thats why am worried! :

        • shashank

          dont worry becoz the circle which u have shaded fully will be considered not the half circle. or slight mark

        • Yusuf Hassan

          u did a blunder.the omr scanner machine might read both of the dark circle u made and as a result the paper will be rejected.however if the wrong mark is not that dark and oval shaped then the other one will be read by computer automatically.
          have you wrote your afcat number correctly in the box by pen?generally what happens is that if the scanner signal an error in answer sheet,the checker usually confirm the data with the manually written afcat no/booklet no etc.that is the reason why we have both boxes and oval columns to fill the details.

  • zubair
