The AFQT

The Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) is a component of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) that assesses candidates for placement into the Armed Services. The AFQT consists of four sections that are part of the ASVAB test.

  1. Word Knowledge
  2. Paragraph Comprehension
  3. Arithmetic Reasoning
  4. Mathematics Knowledge

The AFQT is not a separate test but is the collection of scores from these four sections of the ASVAB. Due to the fact that the AFQT scores determine the eligibility for enlistment into the military, it is important to score as well as possible. This site is designed to provide candidates that are taking the ASVAB with additional opportunities to practice questions in preparation for the types of questions they will receive within the official AFQT test sections. We provide sample practice questions across all four sections, including a score at the end of the practice exam so you can check your performance.

AFQT Minimum Scores

The results of the AFQT are utilized to assess which branch of the military that a candidate is eligible for.  Each branch of the armed services has a minimum score for eligibility.  These scores are:

Air Force: 36

Army: 31

Marines: 32

Coast Guard: 40

Navy: 35
