The Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery test will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 25, at 8:00 a.m. in the Lecture Hall.
Students who are interested in taking the test need to sign up in the counselors office with Dena Blackwell. The deadline to sign up is Monday, Oct. 24. Testing will take around three hours and students need to bring a pencil. No food or drinks are allowed in the testing center.
The ASVAB test is a multiple choice test, administered by the United States Military Entrance Processing Command, used to determine qualification for enlistment in the United States Armed Forces. It is open to all students, not just ROTC classes.
The test has many different information areas, including general science, reading passages, math, electronics and auto knowledge, and even questions over how to assemble items. The test can be taken by any student wishing to know more about their aptitude for their future career path. If students score well on the test, they may want to investigate the careers in the military associated with that section.
Taking the test is not an acceptance into the military or a placement test, it is simply to show students what their strengths and weaknesses are in the armed services.
