How to Calculate a Marine GT Score


In order to be eligible for certain jobs in the United States Marine Corps, you must meet the necessary GT score, or General Technical score. For example, intelligence specialists and interrogators must have a GT score of at least 100 while assaultmen must have a GT score of at least 80. Your GT score is a line score derived by adding scores from various components of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). The ASVAB contains nine sub-tests: general science, arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, paragraph comprehension, mathematics knowledge, electronics information, mechanical comprehension, auto and shop information and assembling objects.

  • Locate your Verbal Expression (VE) score. On most score reports, this score is the last of the standard scores. The standard scores appear directly below your personal identification information. The military computes this score by adding your Word Knowledge and Paragraph Comprehension scores and scaling the score from 20 to 62. Each of the ASVAB test versions has its own scale.

  • Locate your Arithmetic Reasoning (AR) score. On most score reports, this score is the second of the standard scores.

  • Add the two scores together to get your GT score.
