The Army converts the ASVAB subtest scores into 10 composite score areas, known as “line scores.” The line scores determine what job(s) an individual qualifies for.
The ASVAB subtests are: General Science (GS); Arithmetic Reasoning (AR); Word Knowledge (WK); Paragraph Comprehension (PC); Numerical Operations (NO); Coding Speed (CS); Auto and Shop Information (AS); Mathematics Knowledge (MK); Mechanical Comprehension (MC); Electronics Information (EI); and Sum of Word Knowledge and Paragraph Comprehension (VE).
Line Scores are determined as follows:
OF—Operators and Food—VE+NO+AS+MC
SC—Surveillance and Communications—VE+AR+AS+MC
See the table below for jobs in the Army and the corresponding minimum ASVAB line scores.
