Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

    Welcome to the site,

    It depends from geographic region to region in the UK & the standard of education.

    To give you a rough idea for the RN, there are roughly about 4 times as many applicants as there are successful candidates. Around 35% to 45% fail the recruiting test either entirely or for their preferred job in some regions whilst others have less than 10% test score fails.

    You have to treat the statistics with great caution as it doesn't mean you have a 25% of passing selection as you may well be brighter than the UK average, but then have a medical condition which is a bar to entry.

    Hopefully that's not the case for you.

    Good luck.
  3. Depends on how crap or thick they are.
