“I want to get a head start on the ASVAB because I plan on enlisting in the Navy after I finish college. I used the sample questions that are on the ASVAB website to study for the test because I want to see if I could improve my score from the previous year,” senior Sarah Ghebremicael said.
The ASVAB is administered every year to military applicants, high school and postsecondary students. The test measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military.
“The test will show you what areas you have an aptitude in a certain area. For example, it can show that students have an aptitude in science or grammar. Some students even show that they have a manual mechanical aptitude and that they are good with their hands,” College Center Coordinator Mrs. Lisa Moore said.
“I don’t plan on enlisting in the armed forces after high school, but I also don’t know what I want to do or what to study in college. I decided to take the ASVAB to see if it could help me decide what to major in when I go to college,” senior Bianka Rios said.
“In previous years, we have had a student score a perfect score. Students who do score really high on this test have scholarship opportunities if they decide to pursue a future in the military,” Moore said.
