What is the highest you can score on the ASVAB through the Marine Corps? I know Air Force is 99, but I see some jobs on the MOS Manual at 105. Thanks!

ASVAB (AFQT) scores are reported as percentiles between 1-99. An AFQT percentile score indicates the percentage of examinees in a reference group who scored at or below that particular score. For example, you have an AFQT score of 62 which indicates that you scored as well as or better than 62% of the examinees in the reference group.

In the MOS Manual it asks for individual line scores GT, MM, EL, and CL not your AFQT.

Hi, when is the next summer mountain climbing in Bridgeport, Ca. Is it this week? Thanks in advance

Couldn’t find a date and time for the event must be a unit function event. Try the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center site or the Pickel Post.
