What is the GT Score on ASVAB tests?

First of all, what does GT mean on the ASVAB? GT is the acronym to represent the collection of subtests that make up your General Technical ASVAB score.

How does the Army Calculate GT Score results?

What makes up the GT score on the ASVAB? Your GT score on ASVAB tests is the sum of of three ASVAB score results:

  • ASVAB Arithmetic Reasoning - tests how well you can manage ASVAB Math Word Problems
  • ASVAB Word Knowledge - tests the strength of your vocabulary
  • ASVAB Paragraph Comprehension - tests your ability to read and understand information

If you've taken the ASVAB and have a low ASVAB GT score, you will probably need to improve your score in one, two, or all three of these areas of your ASVAB test.

What is a Good GT Score ASVAB recruits should aim for?

There isn't a max GT score ASVAB test-takers need to worry about. A "good" ASVAB GT score really depends on the job you want.

Most military jobs that use General Technical ASVAB test results to qualify candidates are typically not looking for the highest GT score on ASVAB tests. Instead, they are looking for a specific score that may range between ASVAB GT score 83 and ASVAB GT score 110.

What specific ASVAB GT score do you need? Google it!

Search: [branch] + [job] + "ASVAB score”

Type in the branch you're planning on joining along with the job you want and the phrase "ASVAB score" to see the ASVAB GT score needed for that job.

And because things are always changing and being updated, make sure to confirm your findings with your recruiter. They’ll have the most up-to-date information for you regarding ASVAB GT scores.

Remember: Recruiters love prepared applicants. Reaching out because you want to be informed is something most recruiters appreciate. They will be more than happy to provide you with the most up-to-date GT Score ASVAB jobs require.
