Failed written test :(

#1
I failed the numeracy part but did well on other sections so im allowed 1 more chance in 6 months of i undertake a certified course else have wait a year bit of a kick in the teeth but hasnt put me of as it only delays my time in holding troop as selection isnt until oct 10. Anybody else have this happen? If so any recomendations on a free course ive heard of the big plus but since requesting a pack not received a thing. Im also preparing for the fire service so its helped me realise i really got to get onto the books!

Dont quote me on this mate but i believe learn direct run literacy and Numeracy courses that are free. You might want to do a search online to find out.

Good luck!!!

Hey, I failed my first test exactly the same. I was gutted to say the least! I went and done the courses that CP and XRD have mentioned. I passed 6 months later with a score high enough to go in as CT (a very high pass mark so I'm lead to believe) Good luck, and don't let it dishearten you.

Don't be disheartened shipmate!

I work as the ACA in an AFCO and it happens all the time!

The AFCO you went to will have info. on courses to look at (mine does!) so give them a call if you're struggling. If you get no joy call the Coventry AFCO (before the end of Feb, I move on after that) and I'll help you out if I can.
