ASVAB Score Required for Navy Ratings (Jobs)

Sub-tests for Navy Jobs

Recruits at MEPS

If you are going to join the Navy, you will have to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB Test)

The Navy uses the individual ASVAB subtest score areas to determine whether or not a person qualifies for a job (rating). The ASVAB subtests are:

·         General Science (GS)

·         Arithmetic Reasoning (AR)

·         Word Knowledge (WK)

·         Paragraph Comprehension (PC)

·         Assembling Objects (AO)

·         Auto and Shop Information (AS)

·         Mathematics Knowledge (MK)

·         Mechanical Comprehension (MC)

·         Electronics Information (EI)

·         Sum of Word Knowledge and Paragraph Comprehension (VE).

Combining related subtests that match the requirements of the Navy ratings is how the recruiters will determine if you have the ability / aptitude for certain jobs.
