So had my medical this morning and was declared TMU because of my colour vision. Said he thinks the next step is a lantern test (which I should pass no problems) where's this taken at? Has any one else been in the same situation ?
Difficult to say as I don't know where you live or which AFCO surgery local to you has a Holmes Wright Lantern.
Have to say, I don't understand why you need a Lantern Test as ET(ME) is CP4 and that can be determined using the Ishihari Test (Coloured Dots), a Colour Expanse Test (Different coloured Stationery Tabs correctly identified) or by successfully completing a Wire Trade Test (Correctly connecting a series of coloured wires).
My AFCO is carlisle. I'll have to give them a ring on Monday, I've got a feeling it's going to be half way down the country if I have to do the lantern test. I'd prefer the wire test or the stationary tabs I won't have a problem with them I just can't manage the colour plates that I did today I never have managed them.
So after 6 weeks I'm still no further fowards. I've phoned the careers office a couple of times to see if there's any updates and so far have only got that they are still waiting on guidance and that there's another lad in the same position. Does any one have any idea on how long it'll take them to get guidance?
