What is the ASVAB?

It is an exam that was established in 1968 and then revised in 2002 and 2004 to the test that is recognized as the standard today for all military entrants.

The ASVAB is similar to college entrance exams but with questions that are more focused on life skills.

How is it divided and what is the significance of the divisions?

The ASVAB is divided into a variety of subsections that will be tested.

Those subsections will then be added together in various combinations to create aptitude scores which is what will determine your ability to land certain MOS’.

Examples will be provided throughout this document.

The ASVAB subsections are as follows:

  • General Science (GS)
  • Arithmetic Reasoning (AR)
  • Word Knowledge (WK)
  • Mathematics Knowledge (MK)
  • Paragraph Comprehension (PC)
  • Electronics Information (EI)
  • Auto and Shop Information (AS)
  • Mechanical Comprehension (MC)
  • Assembling Objects (AO)

Each of these subsections will be what a candidate actually answers questions over.

There will be a set number of questions and a dedicated amount of time for the applicant to determine answers.

Then, the aptitude, line score, of the candidate will be established in the following way.

Line Score Title
Line Score
Sum of Subsets Needed to Determine
CL: Clerical        VE + AR + MK
EL: ElectronicsGS + AR + EI + MK
MM: Mechanical MaintenanceAS + MC + EI
NONO is a phased out portion of the line score that is no longer being recognized as an area for determining MM
ST: Skilled Technical GS + VE +MK + MC
GT: General Technical VE + AR

The Marine Corps is a unique fighting branch that boasts a small number of individuals. It is full of diverse careers and opportunities that can be beneficial both while serving and as a civilian.

The above list shows a summary of entry level occupations and only designates what line score is required following the taking of the ASVAB.
