This is for the US military veterans or involved in US military, or anyone who knows! I MAYBE going into the Navy. I was considering it. I took a quick, short, practice ASVAB. I got a 48. I was good,(to be accepted to the Navy) could get in. My question is: does the higher score give me a greater chance of doing the job I want? I am going to take an actual one in November. Let's say I get a 52, which is estimated since the practice one is apparently a tad bit harder. I just want to know if I should put a lot of effort into it, even if I am "considering" it, I want to make sure I do my best. Or does it not matter? Whatever job you get is whatever the military thinks you're best suited for?
Your ASVAB score determines the probability that you will get what you want. If you get a 100, you practically can get any MOS. The recruiters job is to get you to sign to something in high demand. If you tell him straight up that you qualify for this role and you want it. You should have no problem getting the occupation you want. The higher the ASVAB score is, the higher priority you are. Primarily, as long as you pass the requirement for the MOS YOU WANT TO DO. You should be okay.
Don't slack the ASVAB. If you have a chance to re-take it, do it. Won't hurt, you can only get higher
