    got some jitters, but overall I'm feeling good about the test. I heard that incase I don't get the scores I need for AET I can retake it while I'm in the coast guard. Is this true? I guess if retake while I'm at my first unit?

    Yes you can retake the ASVAB but if you score lower, that will be your new score so make sure you fix the deficiencies before you retake the test.

    6 month retest periods now when you're in the CG. You're better off trying once or twice more as a civilian as you'll only have to wait 30 days between retesting if you're not close to a 5 point waiver.

    I scored a 60, but was aiming for a 65. To qualify for any rate I choose. I can use a 5 point waiver to get over the hump?

    There is the possibility that the 60 you scored was enough to get the rating you want. There is also the possibility you would need 9 points to get the rating you want. A 65 doesn't mean everything if the numbers per section aren't scored the way to qualify for that rating. Your recruiter will tell you what you qualify for, what you don't qualify for and what you would need to qualify for that rating.

    I'm confused and my recruiter isn't really clearing it up for me. I'm going for AET that requires the lines scores of 172 in the subtests GS, EI, and MK. Plus a minimum score of 52 in AR. But it also says "or" score a 65 AFQT. I'm focusing on my math for the second test because I didn't score that high and I feel like it would put me over the 65 required. I need to focus on all the subjects and not worry about that AFQT?

    Ask your recruiter... I want to be an AET. What I currently have scored, is that enough to qualify, should I try a retest, what sections should I focus on to improve my score. If you just ask what did I do wrong? That's what you did wrong... you are not asking the right questions. I don't about the "or score" option. That's where a recruiter has the information. Keep in mind, if you test again and fall to a 58, that's your new qualifying ASVAB. It isn't by the highest score, it is by the last score. So before testing, before studying, before confusing the situation you need to ask the correct questions. If the answers aren't crystal, say "I'm sorry, you are saying XYZ but I'm not sure how that gets me what I need to do the job I wish to have. Please explain again."

    Hey,

    When i finished my asvab, I asked my recruiter to print out my results. Your results clearly show what you are qualified for what MOS. I would say try going to your local library or bookstore and pull out an ASVAB / SAT review book. Yes, you will take all of the subjects again and your most recent score will count. Even if your scores do qualify you. There is a waiting time before A school. My recruiter told me that I have a college degree so i qualify for guaranteed A school which allows me to sign up my name while waiting for A school. In the meantime, I will work as nonrate at my station assignment after bootcamp. Best of luck

    Guaranteed A School means basically no waiting for A School. You graduate boot camp, you go directly to the A School for which you qualify and for which there is a need. If you want PA (Public Affairs) you will not get a guaranteed A School, I don't care what your degree is in. Guaranteed A School is given to those that qualify, regardless of degree or not, and want that rating (CG doesn't use the term MOS) that has guaranteed a available. Typically OS, CS, sometimes MK and just one or 2 others. It is not for every rating and you do not need a degree to get A School guaranteed.

    WIthout sounding self-important or arrogant, I have taken the ASVAB several times and scored quite well. I am a NOTORIOUSLY poor test taker, too. The trick, I beleive, is to stop, take a deep breath and think about each question. You may be good at math and terrible at engineering. Great in reading comprehension and poor at strategy games. No matter where you fall, realize that it is a test.

    If you have the opportunity, go to the public library or a Barnes & Noble (type) bookstore and get books on how to take the test. The test is designed to KEEP PEOPLE OUT OF JOBS, not test to see how smart you are. I know nothing about mechanics and engineering, yet I was able to score well on the exam because I understood the question, not the subject matter!

    Good luck on your re-test, if needed. I wish you well!
