ASVAB REGISTRATION 
 
The ASVAB stands for Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. The test is almost 3 hours long and consists of 9 different categories. 
 
Note that the ASVAB CEP (Career Exploration Program) promotes career literacy and that participants have no obligation to military service, but 11th and 12th grade students who choose to can use their scores to explore enlistment in any of the branches.
 
A subset of your ASVAB score - the AFQT - is derived from the Arithmetic Reasoning, Mathematics Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension and Word Knowledge sections, and will be used to determine eligibility for various military careers/jobs.
