Complete Newbie here, I've got a question to ask, and asking for some tips for the RN interview.

So I've just some back from having done my RN Psychometric Test, and I passed (I'm really pleased!), and although I wasn't given direct results, I saw on my report I got in the mid-20s for each area (30 questions), apart from Mechanical Comprehension, which was 16. Which I thought was pretty good.

So I've applied for Warfare Specialist, however I'm really looking to perhaps go into an officer's role. I looked online and saw somewhere the passmark was 50% for each area (for ratings), and for officers it was 65% overall (or something like that, please correct me), and I think I got over the 65%.

So my question is, and hopefully you can give me some advice before my interview next week, is there a chance I can talk to the RN careers guy and ask about applying for Warfare Officer instead, or what should I do otherwise. Thanks for any advice.

Also, since I have the RN interview next week, is there any tips, or things I SHOULD know, or things I SHOULD NEVER say, to hopefully give me the best chance of passing. Again, thanks for anything you can offer.

If you are academically qualified for Officer & meet the eligibility criteria, then just ask your interviewer (careers adviser) whether you scored high enough in the recruiting test.

My advice is to ring him/her tomorrow because if you meet the eligibility criteria, you application can be switched to Officer & the rating selection interview cancelled.

Question to avoid asking: "Mind if I smoke my spliff during the interview?"

Ahh thanks, much appreciated. I forgot to mention (there is always something) that I have been taking my first year of A-Levels this past year, and I am taking my exams now, but I wouldn't get my results back until Mid-August, and I would need them to be to pass the educational criteria. What would you advise doing, or what options are open to me?

Oh, and thanks about the spliff thing during my interview, I was going to ask him that but I would definitely hate for the interviewer to get the wrong impression about me.

If you've scored high enough in the recruit test, you can switch the application to officer - if you pass selection, entry is subject to meeting the academic requirement. If you don't, you can switch to Rating.

Warfare Spec is about a twelve month wait from test to entry anyway, so you've nothing to lose.
