What Is the ASVAB Test?
Have you ever asked yourself, “What is the ASVAB test?” If you’re dreaming about a future in the military, you’ll need to find out what this is. To give you an idea, Veteran Car Donations rounded up frequently asked questions about the most widely used test in the world.
The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test is a timed multi-aptitude test that’s given at more than 14,000 schools and Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS) throughout the United States. The ASVAB is developed and maintained by the Department of Defense.
This multiple-choice test will help you identify which military jobs would be best for you.
What Does the Test Measure?
The ASVAB was designed to measure the military enlistee’s academic and technical knowledge. It has 10 subsets with four sections. These subsets are word knowledge, paragraph comprehension, arithmetic reasoning, mathematics knowledge, shop information, mechanical comprehension, general science, electronics information, auto information, and assembling objects.
Doing well on the first four sections of ASVAB’s 10 subtests would mean that you’re eligible to enlist. Your overall ASVAB score will help you determine if you’re better suited for clerical, mechanical, maintenance, surveillance, combat or other military occupational specialties. Moreover, high ASVAB scores will help you receive the desired specialized positions that you desire.
‘How Can I Prepare for the ASVAB?’
Just like any other test, your preparation for the ASVAB is crucial in increasing your chances of landing your dream job in the United States military. You’ll need to give yourself enough time to boost your vocabulary by reading the news, books, articles, and any relevant reading material that you can get your hands on. Also, practicing on some sample ASVAB tests that you can find online will help a lot.
How Long Are the Scores Valid?
Your scores are valid for up to two years following the date of testing. In other words, you may use them to enlist in the military within two years after you take the
How Often Can Anyone Take the ASVAB?
You can only take your second ASVAB after one calendar month following your initial ASVAB. If you need to retake it after that, you’ll be required to wait for another six calendar months before you can do so.
