Ex crab applying to the submariners .... (dont hate me)

Good luck.. WESM are in short supply and if you can get through the process quickly and your permission to enter granted you could be in sooner than you think.
talking as someone in the know ;)
 
Ok so I have just completed my recruitment test today and smashed every section, except maths, which I totally ballsed up (I was expecting it to be difficult but Christ it was ridiculous) ... Long story short, due to failure on the maths, I didn't qualify for WESM.

Not all is lost though, as I have qualified for a number of roles one of which is Warfare Specialist on the boats, I can either opt for that role or return to resit the test in 2 months.

Truth be told as I already have a trade and Engineering qualifications behind me I'm tempted to go for WS... Thoughts?

Can anyone offer some real time insight into that particular role as opposed to WESM? I believe both sensors and tactical elements of Warfare Specialist role have been combined, is this true?

TIA
 
The other role I'm seriously interested in is Communications Information Systems Specialist...

What are the pros of the CIS vs. WS?

Do you feel that, with some really hard work on the maths, you could reach the mark required for ETWE(SM)?

Being absolutely honest, maths has always proved a stumbling block for me, and the test was very difficult in certain areas (I went in knowing I'd find it hard), and I can't say with a great deal of certainty that I could improve in 8 weeks to a point I'm as confident as I was in the other sections.

I have a very "mechanical" mind as opposed to "academic," and exams have always been tough for me, especially maths.

I am EXACTLY the same! So much so that at school I asked to be downgraded from the A stream to the B stream. Latin? Who TF needs Latin! So I did Tech Drawing and Metalwork instead, gettin Highers (A Levels) in both.
I hated maths and still do, however, I got through Mech's course. My advice? Get a bit of maths tuition and give it another bash.

Stoker then, not good enough for We, that's your option.
