My husband was in the army but got discharged early for not passing his exams. Can he take the asvab for the Airfare and rejoin the army?

So my Husband is eligible to rejoin the army in a few months but his asvab scores are too low and he won't get a good job.His scores are locked in until February 2021 for the army. So technically he would have to wait until feb 2021 to rejoin with better scores. BUT His Scores don't qualify for the airforce. Can he take the asvab for the airforce and use those scores to join the army or navy sooner than 2021?

Update:

*airforce

    So, his current ASVAB scores aren't high enough for the Air Force and he couldn't even pass tests that were designed for the dumbest Soldiers to pass, right?

    Even if he waits until his ASVAB scores expire, he probably isn't going to do any better.  Even if he does score high enough to enlist, he'd probably only qualify for security forces or services.  If he couldn't pass Army tests, he isn't going to make it through any Air Force tech school, even those two.  

    To give this a civilianize this, you are basically asking whether someone that failed out of community college has a shot at MIT.

      There is no "Air Force ASVAB."  there is one ASVAB.  The Air Force isn't going to give him the test unless he is trying to join the Air Force.  He isn't taking it again until his current test   expires.  The odds of any service giving him another shot are very low.

    No.  He may not retake the ASVAB  until his score expires.  It is valid for all 5 branches.

    If his ASVAB score is valid for the Army, it's valid for the Air Force also. If his score was above 32 then it's up to the AF if they want him or not. If your husband was actually discharged from the Army, what's his RE-code? That will probably prevent re-enlistment in any service.

      Basically, what Mrsjvb wrote is the bottom line. If he couldn't pass BCT or AIT exams in the Army and they didn't offer him another field right then, it would appear that he's done.
