Unfortunately, for the RN Recruiting Test, we need people to be able to rapidly and accurately interpret and respond whilst under pressure (in this case, strict time constraints).if you are educationally challenged, e.g. Dyslexic it make it know, some not all test may allocate you more time?
Interestingly I sat the recruits test for both the RN and the army (BARB). I'm dyslexic and I scored a very high percentile in the RN recruiting test but a good but not very high score for the BARB, in fact the major said that my BARB score was from his experience, slightly on the low side for someone with a degree. One of the difference I felt is that the RN test, tests skills that use more regularly e.g. reading and numeracy for which I have developed coping mechanisms for. In addition I felt the BARB is more of a sprint compared to the RN test.Unfortunately, for the RN Recruiting Test, we need people to be able to rapidly and accurately interpret and respond whilst under pressure (in this case, strict time constraints).
At risk of appearing flippant, in an operational situation, we cannot ask an enemy to hang on a couple of minutes whilst we interpret the intelligence data available and respond appropriately.
The test is printed on pastel coloured paper and printed in arial round font to aid those with dyslexia but on average, they have 18-20 seconds to answer each question and 30 seconds per question in the maths section.
Dyslexia isn't a bar to entry, but the test must be passed at precisely the same standard under the same test criteria.
