The army sets high standards for applicants. The ASVAB givers the army a look at how much information you possess and what jobs best fit you. Passing the ASVAB means the army has a job for you.

The scores are presented at 1-99 percentiles. The score you get is based on how you scored in comparison to other applicants. So, if you score a 90, then you score as well or better than 90% of other applicants.
