About the ASVAB General Science (GS) Test

The ASVAB General Science test is designed to test your understanding and ability to apply high school science knowledge in areas such as:

  • Earth science
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics

Questions in this section of our ASVAB practice test range from a general knowledge of scientific facts to understanding general scientific concepts. As you take the practice tests your final score will be compared against the average score for that test. Identify questions you find particularly difficult and brush up on those topics to improve your score for the actual test.

The pencil and paper version of the General Science ASVAB test is 25 questions long and you are allowed 11 minutes to take the test. If you take the computerized ASVAB General Science exam you’ll have eight minutes to answer 16 questions.

Before you take the practice test it can be helpful to know a bit more about the types of questions you will be taking. Each question in the General Science test will have four multiple choice options as answers. Only one answer will be the correct one. A sample question might ask you information about what temperature must be reached for water to boil or whether one compound is more dense than another.

The test can be taken as often as you like as you look to brush up on your science skills. Depending on the role you’re looking to obtain in the armed forces, demonstrating a solid knowledge of scientific concepts on the General Science ASVAB questions may help you on your journey.

A key difference between the pencil and paper General Science test and the CAT (computerized) version of the test are that the computerized version adapts to your answers and can become more difficult as you move from question to question.
