The main purpose of the ASVAB test is not to enlist in the military, but rather to help high school counselors help students identify areas of their career that they are good at. However, the high school version can also be used for enrollment qualifications provided the student has achieved an AFQT qualifying score and the test is taken within two years of enrollment.
Andy’s online ASVAB course asks questions based on your expertise. The first question is quite difficult. When you understand this question correctly, the next question becomes more difficult. If you make a mistake, the next question will be easier.
Why is that an advantage? Because difficult ASVAB questions require more points than simpler ASVAB questions. If you are really good at a particular subject, you can start by eliminating the difficult questions (which require the most points), thereby maximizing your score.
On ASVAB paper, difficult and easy questions are mixed randomly. Among those who took the paper and computer versions, most believed they scored slightly higher than the computer versions.
Currently few people accept the paper version of the ASVAB recruitment as most of the people interested in joining the military use the computerized version of the ASVAB at MEPS. Paper versions are usually issued if the applicant is unable to travel to MEPS.
The results of these two tests do not qualify you to apply. This test is a management screening tool that can be used at the tenant's discretion.
