  •  Career Exploration Scores-The three Career Exploration Scores are verbal, math, and science/technical skills.  Each of these scores is made up of a combination of some of the individual ASVAB tests.
  • ASVAB Tests-You receive a score for each subtest that makes up the ASVAB.
  • Military Entrance Score/Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT)-Participation in the ASVAB CEP does not obligate you to talk with military recruiters or consider a military career.  If you are interested in joining the Military it is best to discuss this score with a recruiter.  Learn more at www.careersinthemilitary.com.
