There is basically a Military Occupation Specialty (MOS) for everyone considering the Army as it currently offers over 150 specialties.
The Army uses the aforementioned nine sub-test categories to create line categories relevant to the type of MOS.
For each category of jobs, you’ll combine various components
- Combat (CO) MOS Jobs: Your test scores are combined from the subtests of AR, AS, CS, and MC.
- Electronics (EL) MOS Jobs: Your test scores are combined from the subtests of AR, EI, GS, and MK.
- Field Artillery (FA) MOS Jobs: Your test scores are combined from the subtests of AR, CS, MC, and MK.
- General Maintenance (GM) MOS Jobs: Your test scores are combined from the subtests of AS, EI, GS, and MK.
- General Technical (GT) MOS Jobs: Your test scores are combined from the subtests of AR and VE.
- Mechanical Maintenance (MM) MOS Jobs: Your test scores are combined from the subtests of AS, EI, MC, and NO.
- Operators & Food (OF) MOS Jobs: Your test scores are combined from the subtests of AS, MC, NO, and VE.
- Surveillance & Communications (SC) MOS Jobs: Your test scores are combined from the subtests of AR, AS, MC, and VE.
- Skilled Technical (ST) MOS Jobs: Your test scores are combined from the subtests of GS, MC, MK, and VE.
When you combine an Army line score with an Army MOS you can determine what the minimum qualification score is to work the MOS.
For example, an Infantryman (MOS 11B) would want to perform well in the subtests of Combat (CO), which are Arithmetic Reasoning, Auto & Shop Information, Coding Speed, and Mechanical Comprehension.
