ASVAB score of 17?

I'm recruiting a girl into the Army and she told me that she got a 17 on the ASVAB. I never really knew how scoring for the ASVAB worked so can someone please tell me if that score is good or bad so I know what to tell her? she would like to be an MP for her MOS.

thanks in advance!

    um i took the asvab and 17 isn't a passing score. "The Army requires a minimum AFQT 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."

    ASVAB scores are a percentile. A 17 means that she did worse than 83% of the population of test takers.

    It is more than bad. It is atrocious and means that she probably slept through or skipped all 4 years of high school.

    a score of 17 means you got your NAME wrong, when you signed the test.

    The Army, will not take her, nor will any other branch. That score is way too low.
