    I recently took the ASTB test and received my results back for it. I'm a little confused about the scoring on it and how things exactly work, so if anyone has some insight about the ASTB please private message me.

    BTW I was unsure as to what section to post this under.

    I think that your thread would have best been suited for a different forum, perhaps the 'Off Topic' as this forum is typically geared for discussions in direct relation to the Naval Academy.
    At any rate, I am not extremely familiar with the ASTB; however, after a quick google search, I found some information that might be helpful. If you need to know more, I would start with a quick google search or maybe a phone call to the entity that administered your test.

    Here is what I found from cliffnotes:
    "If you want to become an aviator in the Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard, you must pass the Aviation Selection Test Battery (ASTB)..

    To derive your overall scores, your test scores are weighted, and four scores are derived:
    Academic Qualifications Rating (AQR): (Score: 1–9) This score is a predictor of your performance in the academic portions of ground school training.
    Pilot Flight Aptitude Rating (PFAR): (Score: 1–9) This score is a predictor of flight grades in primary flight training.
    Flight Officer Flight Aptitude Training (FOFAR): (Score: 1–9) This score, like the PFAR, is a predictor of flight grades in primary flight training.
    Officer Aptitude Rating (OAR): (Score: 20–80) This is a composite score derived from the combination of your test scores.

    You must meet the following minimum scores to be considered for aviation training:
    AQR: Navy: 3; Marine Corps: 4
    PFAR (pilot): Navy: 4; Marine Corps: 6
    FOFAR (info): Navy: 4; Marine Corps: 6
    OAR: Navy and Marine Corps: 40"

    I hope that his has helped!

    Thank you very much! I was searching through google and found everything for the Navy, but not the Marine Corps so I appreciate the work you did for me. That is all the info I needed.

    Thank you for that. I'm looking to shoot for scores along those as well. Best of luck to your daughter!
