can someone please explain this ASVAB rating! trying to figure out what I qualify for!?

AC Air Traffic Controlman AR+2MK+GS=210 does that mean twice my MK score???

yes the 2mk is like saying MK x 2.

The tests currently making up the AFCT are: AR (Arithmetic Reasoning) AS (Auto/Shop Information) EI (Electronics Information) GS (General Science) MC (Mechanical Comprehension) MK (Mathematics Knowledge) PC (Paragraph Comprehension) WK (Word Knowledge) The following formula determines your AFQT raw score: AR + MK + (2 x VE). That is, you multiply your VE score by two, and add to it your AR and MK scores. The Air Force uses a Composite Score Conversion and only use 4 areas (G-General, M-Mechanical, A-Administrative, and E-Electrical). The link below can explain it better than I ever could.

Your scores in four critical areas -- Arithmetic Reasoning, Word Knowledge, Paragraph Comprehension and Mathematics Knowledge (see below) -- count towards your Armed Forces Qualifying Test (AFQT) score. The AFQT score determines whether you're qualified to enlist in the U.S. military. Your scores in the other areas of the ASVAB will determine how qualified you are for certain military occupational specialties and Enlistment Bonuses. A high score will improve your chances of getting the specialty/job and signing bonus you want. Scoring high on the ASVAB will require study and concentration. Don't skimp on preparing for this test. It's your future. Get the most out of it.

According the Army website, it says a 200 is average, so you have to be above average to be an Air Traffic Controller. It's probably a 70% (70% qualifies you for almost every job in any branch of the military) average score if you figure it out percentile rather than raw score which is what the formula you printed is. MK is math knowledge. So, they ask you about 40 math questions? 50? I don't remember. But anyway, if you get 20 right you would get 40 pts for it.

You need a 31 to join the army , Im not to sure what the other services are. It depends on your MOS and your line scores. If your GT score is above 110 youll probably qualify for everything.

lucky the luckless
no clue
