ASVAB Scores for Navy 2017

Applicants are currently facing a high amount of competition to join the Navy. ASVAB score lower than 50? Try again in a month. At least, that is what ASVAB Boot Camp customers are reporting as their experience when trying to join the Navy. With troop deployments declining, the Navy is seeking applicants with the skills to fill specialized roles. These roles need to be filled by a person with a high aptitude for reading, writing and arithmetic. Or, increase your odds of acceptance into the Navy even more by refining your engineering, mechanical and science knowledge so you are eligible for a Navy STEM career. STEM is the acronym for Science, Technical, Engineering and Medical. Careers in the STEM fields involve breakthrough technology and research that is responsible for the technological advancement of the United States military.

 

Any job that you want for the long term will require you to study, prepare or learn from hands on experience. It’s that knowledge that will help a person grow in any career they choose.   Here are the areas of the ASVAB: Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), Mathematics Knowledge (MK), Word Knowledge (WK), Paragraph Comprehension (PC), General Science (GS), Mechanical Comprehension (MC), Electrical Information (EI), Shop Information (SI), Auto Information (AI) and Assembling Objects (AO). To calculate Verbal Expression (VE) score here is a link that explains how to determine your composite VE score.

    I’ve been studying for the ASVAB to join the Navy. I’ve read that I should shoot for a score around 70% on each of the four main parts (AR, MK, WK and PC). How do the other areas of the test affect my score?

    • The four main parts impact eligibility. The other tests impact job placement in a field that requires specialty skills.

  • Emilee

    So to join the navy you have to score at least a 50 to do anything?

    Yea i scored a 48 on my ASVAB and was told i was good to go, but i guess not because after passing my medical my recruiter told me that they are only taking scores 50 and above, so i’m just waiting, just don’t feel like taking the ASVAB again.
