ASVAB Information

The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery is the most widely used multiple-aptitude test battery in the world. As an aptitude test, the ASVAB measures students' strengths, weaknesses, and potential for future success. The ASVAB also provides the examinee with career information for various civilian and military occupations and is an indicator for success in future endeavors whether they choose to go to college, vocational school, or a military career. It was created for high school students in their sophomore, junior, or senior year or in a postsecondary school to help identify their abilities. It is a great tool, and it has helped many students decide on their future educational or career path.

**Northern Lebanon High School administers the paper and pencil version of the ASVAB. Announcements and sign-up information will be available on Schoology.**

As soon all examinees are checked in and seated, the test administrator will provide some general instructions and pass out the test booklets and answer sheets. Listen carefully and do not proceed unless instructed to do so. The total time required, including administrative tasks and instructions, is three to four hours. Each subtest has a fixed number of questions and time limit. When you complete the items in a subtest, you may review your answers. However, you cannot go back to an earlier subtest, nor proceed to the next subtest until instructed to do so. After the test session, answer sheets are sent to the MEPS to be scanned and scored. This process usually takes a few days. Your recruiter will be notified when your test scores are verified and available. A preliminary Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) Score is usually calculated by the test administrator and made available to your recruiter immediately after the test session.

ASVAB Qualifying Scores

The AFQT is comprised of your test results in Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), Math Knowledge (MK), and Verbal Composite (VE) x 2. Your Verbal Composite score is a combination of your Word Knowledge and Paragraph Comprehension scores. Check out the following AFQT qualifying scores for each branch of service.

Service Branch - Required AFQT Score
