Job Line Scores

The AFQT score is used solely to determine whether or not a person is eligible to join a particular branch of the military. The AFQT score is not used to determine whether or not someone is qualified to be trained in a specific military job. Military job qualification is determined based on Line Scores, which are derived from individual ASVAB subtest scores.

Army and Army National Guard

The Army determines job qualification from ten separate composite scores made up from various sub-tests of the ASVAB. The Army Composite Scores are:

  • Clerical (CL) – Determined from Verbal Expression (VE), Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), and Mathematics Knowledge (MK).
  • Combat (CO) – Determined from Verbal Expression (VE), Auto & Shop (AS) and Mechanical Comprehension (MC).
  • Electronics (EL) – Determined from General Science (GS), Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), Mathematics Knowledge (MK) and Electronic Information (EI).
  • Field Artillery (FA) – Determined from Arithmetic Reasoning (AR) Mathematics Knowledge (MK) and Mechanical Comprehension (MC).
  • General Maintenance (GM) – Determined from General Science (GS), Auto & Shop (AS), Mathematics Knowledge (MK) and Electronics Information (EI).
  • General Technical (GT) – Determined from Verbal Expression (VE) and Arithmetic Reasoning (AR).
  • Mechanical Maintenance (MM) – Determined from Auto & Shop (AS), Mechanical Comprehension (MC) and Electronic Information (EI).
  • Operators and Food (OF) – Determined from Verbal Expression (VE), Auto & Shop (AS) and Mechanical Comprehension (MC).
  • Surveillance and Communications (SC) – Determined from Verbal Expression (VE), Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), Auto & Shop (AS) and Mechanical Comprehension (MC).

    regarding about GT its VE and AR do they compute it on raw score or percentile? becouse my target job require 110GT.

    • Raw Score. Here’s how:

      1. Locate the scores for the Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), Word Knowledge (WK), and Paragraph Comprehension (PC) subtest scores on your score report.
      2.Determine your Verbal Expression (VE) score. Add the WK and PC scores and then multiply the result by two.
      3. Add the VE score to the AR score to get the Army GT score
