Default ASVAB Scores

Does anybody know if ASVAB scores can be used of anything else? Like can they be used to help you in entering school?

I do know they are used in the military to determine what MOS or should I say what military occupation you can go into. But according to Kerry I guess those of us in the military are dumbasses and the ASVAB really doesn't mean anything.

I think the military will probably be the only one interested in ASVAB scores, though your high school will get notified of your score, if you were still in high school.

Help you? No. I don't think so.

The ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) tests for things like spatial relation and mechanical aptitude, as well as other things the military finds useful to know about prospective enlistees. (At least it did in my day. Back then we mostly banged rocks together and howled in fear when the sun went down.)

The SAT and ACT test for preparedness for continued education. While someone who does well on them will probably score highly on the ASVAB, it may not work the other way around.

I took my ASVAB over ten years ago to join the Marines, but now I have to take a test to test out something or another in school and was wandering if those scores would be of any help at this juncture.

I took an ASVAB when I was 17. I got Cs in school but scored a perfect score of 99 on the mechanical aptitude test. And only missed a couple of other questions. They didn't have 100 because the computer couldn't store 3place holders. Only 2. lol.

Now they have books on taking the test.

Yhea! I noticed that the other night when I was at the book store.

I can't believe that it's gone a step further and the army is not requiering the ASVAB anymore. But i suppose that it dosen't take to many smarts to bag bodies and catch bullets.

Do you have a link to the Army not performing ASVAB anymore?

I heard a new sound bit on this a couple of weeks ago. They are in desperate need of people right now, so they have decided to do away with this.

It's kinda dumb. At least make them take the test. That way they know who should be a ground pounder, and who should work on helicopters...

Also, each service scores the ASVAB differently. I learned that back in 1994 when I had to take it a second time to go on Active duty in the Army. I had already taken it back in 1988 to go into the Marine Corps, but the Army wanted me to take it again...

My high school is now advertising ASVAB a lot, on walls, on ceilings and even on the toilets... (I'm not kidding)

I would like to see a link. I don't think it's true.
