About the Exam
The ASVAB is a 10-part military entrance exam. Four of the ASVAB's sections (Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension, Arithmetic Reasoning and Mathematics Knowledge) make up a candidate's AFQT score. These scores are used for enlistment eligibility purposes by military branches such as the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force. AFTQ scores are measured as percentiles and divided into 8 categories. Current military professionals may decide to take the ASVAB for training and job reclassification purposes, and high school and post-secondary students may take the exam during ASVAB Career Exploration Programs.
The exams are offered in computer-administered and paper-and-pencil versions. The amount of questions and time limits differ between these two formats. For example, the Word Knowledge section on the computer-administered format has 16 questions that must be answered in 8 minutes, while the Word Knowledge section on the paper-and-pencil version has 35 questions that must be answered in 11 minutes.
