    How are recruitment tests marked?

    Hi Forgive me if there is another post about this. Can anybody enlighten me as to how RN Recruitment Tests are marked? I've been told that it's not the simple dotting up whatever you get on each individual test, so am curious as to how they're actually assessed. Thanks
