# What score do you need to pass the ASVAB?

There is no overall "ASVAB Score." When you hear someone saying "I got an 80 on my ASVAB," they are talking about their AFQT (Armed Forces Qualifying Test) score, not an "overall" ASVAB Score. The AFQT is important. It determines whether or not you can join the military. The AFQT score is not derived from all portions of the ASVAB. Indeed, the AFQT score is determined from only four areas of the ASVAB: Word Knowledge (WK), Paragraph Comprehension (PC), Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), and Mathematics Knowledge (MK).. The score is computed as follows: The first step is to determine your Verbal Expression (VE) Score. This is done by adding the value of your ASVAB Word Knowledge (WK) Score to the values of your Paragraph Comprehension (PC) Score. This result is then compared to a chart which gives you your scaled VE Score. The formula to derive the AFQT "raw Score" is 2VE + AR (Arithmetic Reasoning) + MK (Mathematics Knowledge). It's important to understand here that the AFQT score is not computed with the AR "Line Score" and the MK "Line Score" that you see on your ASVAB scores sheet. The AR and MK scores shown on the score sheet is "number correct." However, the score used to compute AFQT score is the "weighted score," which takes into consideration the difficulty level of the question. This formula results in the AFQT "raw score," which is then converted into a percentile score. In 1980, a study, known as the "Profile of American Youth," was conducted by the Department of Defense in cooperation with the Department of Labor. DOD administered the ASVAB to a total of 11,914 individuals, ranging in age from 16 to 23, from July to October 1980. The purpose of the Profile of American Youth was to obtain data on the vocational aptitudes of current youth and to establish current national norms for the ASVAB. The person's AFQT score is a percentile score, based on the population of test-takers in the above study. The percentiles are based upon a 99 point scale with 99 being the highest.

# How many answers do you have to get right to score a 31 on the ASVAB?

Your ASVAB score (actually your AFQT score) is made up of your scores on four of the ASVAB's subtests then ranked among all the other applicants who have taken the test. This makes it almost impossible to determine how many right answers are necessary on each subtest for a specific score.

Also, you don't pass or fail the ASVAB you only achieve a certain score. That score is then used to determine if you qualify for enlistment. The minimum score necessary for enlistment is a 31 for the Army so I guess below that could be considered a failing score through...

# How do you find your ASVAB score once you have taken the test?

The formula to derive the AFQT "raw Score" is 2VE + AR (Arithmetic Reasoning) + MK (Mathematics Knowledge). This formula results in the AFQT "raw score," which is then converted into a percentile score. [cited from ABCs of the ASVAB. pg 3. by Rod Powers About.com]

# How do you convert marine corps ASVAB scores to air force?

ASVAB scores apply the same to all of the different branches. No conversions are required. However from talking to recruiters from all 5 branches, I can say that each branch will look at your score a little differently when it comes to what you will or will not qualify for. I have worked with recruiters from every branch and seen this take place. The AS in ASVAB stands for Armed Services, so your AFQT ( overall score - Armed Forces Qualifying Test I believe), applies to every branch

# What was the highest possible army gt score in 1968?

not sure but since Mensa says 136 puts you in top 2% it would probably be roughly 136/98=139 so there is that. Someone scoring over 139 would imply unusually high score. I was in the army records division and as I recall there was a guy in our division who scored a 151. Real nice guy. I was second to him but way down as mine was 136
