Does your ASVAB score determine what jobs you will qualify for in the military?


Answer by  GilFinn (2065)

Absolutely. People who score low are generally funneled to the types of non-technical, more physical types of jobs. Personel scoring high are singled out for the more highly technical, knowledge/skills type jobs. It's not always the case, but it is a good indicator of where a person will fit in best for the military and themselves.

Yes- your ASVAB (Armed Service Vocational Aptitude Battery) rates your "ability" to do certain tasks. Your score needs to fall within the range needed for each job.

Partially. For example, you have to have a good score on some or all of the ASVAB to qualify for a job as a Navy nuclear technician. Education, civilian experience and medical eligibility also play a role.

ASVAB, or Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is one of the determining factors (age and education may also play a factor) for what jobs you qualify for. The actual scores vary from Service to Service. The military recruiter is the best source of info on exacty what scores are required.

Yes, the ASVAB score is broken out into different areas, and depending on the job you want, will change what the minimum you need.
