The Mobile Examination Test site (MET-site) version of the ASVAB is taken at the recommendation of your recruiter. This is a multiple choice test where you write your answer in pen or pencil on a separate answer sheet which will be scanned. Unlike the CAT-ASVAB, changing answers is possible. You have a limited time to finish answering the various sections and must remain where you are when you are finished. Plan on spending 3-4 hours at the MET-site when taking this version of the ASVAB. Blanks count as wrong answers, so guess instead of leaving answers blank.

The MEPS test admin will give you a sealed envelope with your unverified test scores. Once your sheet has been evaluated by MEPS (usually takes a few days), a verified score will be sent to your recruiter.
