If you go to the internet one from windows it is the same. A lot of pubs are like it on the MOD intranet too. I don't know for sure, but suspect the pdfs are built with absolute links rather than relative, and are looking for pages on a D:/ CD ROM rather than hosted on a web.

Are you looking for something specific in BR3, NAVY5?

Soleil, nothing important really I suppose, was only my own curiosity as the to the different RT scores required for each trade. Only asking the question here, because of the inoperable link on the RN website.

As far as the "All Up" scores, i.e. the total scores required when all 4 sections are added together are concerned, Communications Technician and Naval Nurse require high scores. There's then a point where the Engineering, Medical, Dental and Aircraft Controller scores are bunched together.

There are also required Part Scores which relate to the demands of the particular jobs e.g. Air Engineering Technicians require a minimum score in Mechanical Comprehension, which makes sense.

It always makes me wonder if a candidate knows precisely the score required in a recruiting test for their chosen branch, does it alter their performance?

To date I've yet to see someone, during the test, stopping once they have answered sufficient questions correctly, lighting a tab & cracking open a can of Carlsberg whilst waiting for everyone else to blunder their way through the test paper. (Except for me when I'm invigilating, of course).

Logic dictates the more technical the job, the higher the score required. Whilst the scores required are actually in the public domain for those wishing to find out, the knowledge does not give any advantage.

Ninja, yes I agree with your thinking. Iam sure one day there maybe a recruit who does arrogantly assume he has done "enough" after 70 questions and slow down because of his knowledge of the scores required. Unbelievable I know, but I can see it happening.

I have already taken my RT, I don't know my exact score obviously but, I was told its over 100. I was just simply curious as to the scores required, and to read BR3 as I have seen it mentioned it quite a few threads.

If you've scored over 100 correct, assuming you managed 25 correct in each section (not always the case), then there's only one branch in the Navy for which you may not be eligible in terms of the Recruiting Test score.

Padre's don't need to sit the Recruiting Test, God knows why.

You must have been given a wide choice of jobs, as Ninja says.

Which one are you opting for?

Iam deciding between ETME and Warfare Tactical. My civvy skills and knowledge would would work very well with the ETME branch Ive been told. However Iam very drawn to the warfare branch as Iam keen to be involved in the command and control of either the ship or boat. Iam a decisive person and feel I work well leading a group of colleagues. I want the extra responsibility and pressure that I feel the tactical branch brings.

I may be talking complete rubbish though as I realise I don't have any first hand experience yet!!

Has anyone got first experience as a tactical rating? Day to day life and responsibilities? Also how does anyone feel the chances are of fast promotion being effected in these two branches?? One better than other? Any difference between boats and ships??

May not be a significant difference, but would be good to hear someones first hand experience!

Thanks for your help lads!!

Apologies to both for my grammar and questions on promotion. Where else is a new recruit supposed to ask these questions? Why should someone have to actually join first before finding out about his full future career options and prospects?

Didn't mean to come across as an annoying twat!! LOL!

Anyway, thank you all for your help and advice everyone.

Don't worry about it - you can get cream for that, you know:

Try your AFCO? Just a thought.

I have spoken to them obviously! The navy is made up of more than one mans opinion though! Simply asking for other peoples thoughts, in particular serving personnel who have gone through a similar process. Seems a very normal, sensible thing to do to me!

Some would argue they should at least undertake the numeracy section so they can count their wages, others would say they earn their keep with regard the unsavoury aspect of casualty notification.

Then again, they've had a pay freeze too, bless:
