Unlike the other services, the Navy does not re-compute ASVAB sub-test scores into individual "line scores." Instead, for job-qualification purposes, the Navy requires a minimum total score from various sub-tests of the ASVAB.
For example, if the ASVAB score requirement on the Navy Job Description Page says "PC + AR = 105," that means that the total (sum) of one's ASVAB sub-test scores of Paragraph Comprehension (PC), and Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), must be at least 105, in order to qualify for that job.
The ASVAB Sub-Test Composites Used by the Navy are:
- General Science (GS)
- Arithmetic Reasoning (AR)
- Word Knowledge (WK)
- Paragraph Comprehension (PC)
- Numerical Operations (NO)
- Coding Speed (CS)
- Auto and Shop Information (AS)
- Mathematics Knowledge (MK)
- Mechanical Comprehension (MC)
- Electronics Information (EI)
- Sum of Word Knowledge and Paragraph Comprehension (VE)
- Assembly of Objects (AO)
