So unfortunately I did not pass the verbal section on the AFOQT which I took sometime last semester. The date for the second attempt is April 11th 2016. I am going for a Rated Enrollment Allocation and my Cadre were not sure if I am able to compete for it at the moment. My question is, can I still go up for a Rated EA with a fail in the AFOQT for the time being? My Captain was not sure if I would be able to meet the rated board and have to go for just an EA (Non Rated). Thanks for the help in advance.
