ASVAB Scores

ASVAB Scores are composite scores created by combining different subtests of the ASVAB, in order to best determine your strong and weak areas of knowledge. Your ASVAB scores can be really high in one score, and medium to low in another, and you would still pass the ASVAB. The Army utilizes the composite scoring table below to create your final ASVAB scores, and then assesses what Army Jobs (MOS) you are eligible for.

No matter what MOS you have in the Army, the most commonly referred to composite score is the “GT” (General Technical) score. For Army schools just as Rangers, Special Forces, and many more, your GT score needs to be 107 or greater.

ASVAB Scores Explained

The Army converts the ASVAB subtest scores into 10 composite score areas, known as “line scores.” The line scores determine what Army jobs an individual qualifies for. The ASVAB subtests can be found on the “ASVAB Subtests” page. Composite ASVAB scores are determined as follows:

Abbr. Composite ASVAB Score Subtests Combined
CL Clerical VE+AR+MK
EL Electronics GS+AR+MK+EI
FA Field Artillery AR+CS+MK+MC
GM General Maintenance GS+AS+MK+EI
GT General Technical VE+AR
MM Mechanical Maintenance NO+AS+MC+EI
OF Operators and Food VE+NO+AS+MC
SC Surveillance and Communications VE+AR+AS+MC
ST Skilled Technical GS+VE+MK+MC

What ASVAB Scores affect MOS eligibility?

Like mentioned before, your ASVAB scores determine what Army Jobs (MOS) you are eligible for when enlisting, or re-enlisting into the US Army. For the majority of MOS’s, MOS restrictions for ASVAB scores are not too strict. On our Army MOS Listings page, click on the MOS you are interested in. On the MOS details page, you’ll see if there are any ASVAB restrictions assigned to that specific MOS.
