Hello guys , today I went up to the recruiting office and talked to the guys there. I just got my GED in the mail and I told them I wanted to see about joining and told them that I have the GED, to my surprised he said that's fine and said I'm good to go , I just need to score higher than 50 on the ASVAB.
He then offered me a practice ASVAB test , which caught me off guard , but I said ok screw it lets take it. 30 Min later I was finished and got a score of 64. I told him what fields I wanted to go in ( computers , network ect... ) he said if I score the same on my main test I'd have options for 3 different computer jobs.
I was pretty damn happy , so I told him I'd take a week and study a little more then take it. He took down my info and said he will call me next Monday about taking the test on Tuesday.
So , I went home , and picked out a couple of jobs I'd really like. Here they are...
94F - Computer/Detection Systems Repairerhttp://usmilitary.about.com/od/enlistedjobs/a/94f.htm
15W - Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Operatorhttp://usmilitary.about.com/od/enlistedjobs/a/96u.htm
25FF - - Network Switching Systems Operator-Maintainerhttp://usmilitary.about.com/od/enlistedjobs/a/31f.htm
By the time of the test , I'll have at least 5 jobs picked out. So I guess this is where the questions come in.
1. How good did I do on my practice? I know it's only the 4 main subjects , but is that a decent score , should I score higher than 50 ?
2. Those 3 jobs require , 105 in aptitude area EL and/or 105 in aptitude area SC , are those line scores hard to come by?
3. Any other jobs I'm missing ? You see what I'm interested in , any other suggestions ?
4. On the 94F I see under requirements (Successful completion of one year of high school algebra and general science) now , I finished my GED and the Math portion did have algebra on it. Does that count at all or will I not qualify for that job ?
Well , it seems those are the only questions I really have right now , I got a ASVAB for Dummies app on my Iphone I've been looking over , it seems like it will help a little. Sorry about the long story , I just wanted to make sure you knew where I was at right now.
Hoping to see some replies soon!
