Marine Careers & Required ASVAB Scores

Marines and Army use similar terminology when referring to job descriptions.  Just like in the Army, the Marines breaks down the ASVAB subtest scores into groups known as line scores to determine which jobs applicants are best suited for.  These line scores and the set of composites that make up each are as follows:
