The ASVAB is the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery, a multi-faceted test for members of the military. The Marine Corps takes scores on the ASVAB and breaks them down into line score groups. These line scores are separated into mechanical maintenance, electronics, clerical, general technical and skilled technical. Each of these categories are made up of scores in certain sub-tests of the ASVAB like mathematics knowledge and general science. However, these minimum line scores requirements can change.
