    RN Recruiting Test/Psychometric Test Examples.

    By popular request:

    You may download example tests here: http://c69011.r11.cf3.rackcdn.com/d6...6d5a00-0x0.pdf Many claim the practice test booklet is different to the test - it isn't, but if they do not practice against the clock, as instructed, they are in for a surprise.

    The Recruiting Test is 4 part multiple choice, 30 questions in each section & you should aim to get a minimum of 50% correct in each of the 4 sections to be assured of a good pass & to leave viable job options in the Navy, should you not score high enough for your chosen trade. If you score less than ten out of 30 in the English or maths sections, it's an automatic fail for any job. The questions aren't hard, but you need to work fast. If you fail it's 12 months for a re-sit, so beware falling at the first hurdle- for goodness sake -PRACTICE AGAINST THE CLOCK!!!

    You get a free practice test booklet from the AFCO, (downlaodable link above) which is an excellent guide to what to expect. Online tests are of limited value as it's a paper & pencil test, however a lot of people say the Brain Training series of games games on a Ninetendo DS helped them.

    A very good free online Psychometric Test can be found on the Practice Tests website
    BUT: The site is merely used to test out testing systems, so don't put your real ID or email details on the site- just enter spoof data. You should go through the test as fast as you can to simulate the real thing. To my mind it’s probably the most representative of the tests available, albeit online rather than paper & pencil.

    Other good online tests can be found at: The Fireman's mechanical comprehension tests will help. (At risk of sounding ageist or sexist, the mechanical aspect tends to be the weakest area for many young males & females). The RN doesn't have any online versions, but the Civil Service online test offers a simulated Naval entry test which isn't strictly reflective, but again gives a good idea of what to expect, likewise there are some authentic practice tests on the psychometric success site.

    A good book to borrow from a library (harder than the test, but good for practice- IF you feel you need it) is IQ & Psychometric Testing by Phillip Carter another one, believe it or not is the Verbal, Non-Verbal & mathematics sections of 11+ Mixed Papers. It sounds mad but the questions are virtually identical- again it's the timescales that make it difficult. You only have 9 minutes to complete 30 questions in the verbal section, same again in the non-verbal & 16 minutes for the 30 maths questions. Sounds easy- try it!

    The generic: Practice Tests for the Armed Forces: Entry Level (ISBN: 9780340926550)is reasonable in my opinion, but possibly a little easier than the real thing. The Ultimate Psychometric Test Book is another reasonable example to borrow from your nearest library.

    The overiding advice, is these example tests need not cost you a penny, so don't be suckered into buying something you can borrow or download for nothing.

    You'll usually just be told if you pass, or fail mate.

    If you can score over 50 per cent you will be fine.

    No they need to get far more, They need to get about 65 percent in both the Maths and English sections.
