Yes
E-Electrical (I just didn't mention it because you need really high scores to quality. No one with a 31 ever qualifies for any E job that I've seen).

We have people score well below 30 on occasion. I've seen scores in the single digits... YAY for American Educational reform and the No Child Left Behind Act.

It's common for people to fail the test multiple times and just give up.

Usually, that's it. Every once in awhile they'll have a M score high enough to be a vehicle mechanic. Often though, they have to retest because of job qualifications.
G-General
A-Admin
M-Mechanical
Oh, OK, thanks for the info.

I get it, my generator mechanic was (to put it crudely) dumb as a box of rocks, but he had the ability to keep my motors going.

ASVAB scores are NOT "IQ" tests. Never use "IQ" in connection with any military aptitude test. They are not designed as general intelligence measures.

your post is hard to understand due to the wording. Did the meps diagnose you with glaucoma, because thats one of the most common causes of being diagnosed with increased pressure of the eye. or was it just hypertension. you might have to submit the records of your clean bill of health, from your ophthalmologist(eye doctor) to Meps for review. I have heard where Meps diagnosed people with some kind of disorder but thier personal physicians did the same test and had find anything wrong. you will need a waiver unfortunately, plus your eye doctors report on your eye, helps in assessing that situation.
