The ASVAB is a standardized test that reveals areas of strength and ability in science, math, and language. Taking the test is one of the first steps before you enlist. Once its over, you'll get to find a job that matches up to your strengths. The ASVAB tests you in these ten different subjects - general science, arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, paragraph comprehension, mathematics knowledge, electronics information, auto and shop information, mechanical comprehension, assembling objects, and verbal expression. Your score will help reveal which career path is right for you.
There are two types of ASVAB scores. First, your Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) score determines whether you’re eligible to join and you'll need to score at least 31 to enlist. Second, your ASVAB category scores, called line scores, determine job opportunities based on your knowledge and skills in these ten different areas.
After you receive your ASVAB scores, you’ll have a better idea of which job opportunities you can pursue. You may even discover new career paths you hadn’t considered.
