The short answer is 31, but it isn't as simple as that as how you perform in the test will determine what job(s) you will be suitable for.

Here is the main information you require though.

ASVAB Score - The Army requires a minimum Armed Forces Qualification Test Score of 31 to qualify for enlistment. However, in recent months, the Army has been approving more and more waivers for those with scores as low as 26 (Category IVA). To qualify for certain enlistment incentives, such as enlistment bonuses, an Army recruit must score a minimum of 50.

Education - The Army allows more recruits to enlist with a GED than any other branch. In Fiscal Year 2008, only 83 per cent of new Army recruits had a high school diploma (or at least 15 college credits), compared with the Department of Defense (DOD) average of 92 per cent. The Army even has a special program, called Army Prep School, which allows individuals to enlist who have no high school diploma or GED.

The Army offers a higher enlistment rank for recruits with a college education. Unlike the Air Force, where the maximum initial enlistment rank for college credits is E-3, the Army offers the rank of E-4 for those with a bachelor's degree.

After you pass the ASVAB test, you must complete a physical exam at the local Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS). If there is nothing physically wrong with you and you are in reasonably good shape health wise, then you will be allowed to enlist. After you ship off to GED school in Little Rock, you will begin basic training exactly three weeks later upon achieving your GED.

Here are some good example questions that you may want to try beforehand:

Good luck!

To join the Army Guard you need a 31 or better.  I am 23 now and I took it when I was 16 and I got a 98, it was easy.  Are you thinking about joining the Army Guard?

Although the answer below is somewhat accurate, it isn't as correct as he would like to believe. The overall score is something the army looks at and if you just want to be a regular Infantryman, 19 is the lowest score they take for Infantry. If your wanting to be something more technical, then of course the higher you score, the better the opportunities get the Army will offer you. This of course raises your chances of a better bonus, more pay, and better chances of getting hired within your MOS job specialties outside of the National Guard when your not serving your part time obligation.

In the National Guard right now(since admittance scores do change from time to time)you need to score a minimum of 50 on the ASVAB to enlist. But overall that score is irrelevant, since to decipher what MOS you can get educated in depends on your GT line score, check with your recruiter to see what your line score would need to be to have that MOS.
