question ragarding recruit test

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by TheFonz, Aug 12, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sorry guys, I know this has been asked a million times and it was also answered in my last thread but I have just had a text from a friend that contradicts all the answers ive found so far???

    Ive applied for Submarine ET (ME) , If I dont score high enough on my RT test will I be given other job offers that suit my results? OR will I have to try again in 12 months?

    A friend of mine didnt score high enough on his RT test and has been told to try again in 12 months time with no other job offers. But my research has led me to believe they would normally offer you something?

    sorry again for asking a repeat question.

  2. Usually you will be offered another branch which you RT score has scored you high enough for. I suspect though should you completely fail the RT then you will have to resit it 12 months later.

    I'm sure NS or SM will be able to give you an official answer.

    However there are plenty of threads on this.
     
  3. Thanks for the reply. I had that answer in my head already, I was just shocked to hear my mate has got to come back in a year?!
     
  4. Don't worry, your friend is just a fcking retard, and has been officially recognised as a shaved chimp.
     
  5. JJ speaks the truth
     
  6. Wow! Is it really that bad? he hasnt told me any of his results.
     
  7. It's not the end of the world though; if he manages to fail it twice he will be offered a commission in the RAF
     

  8. hahaha ouch!!

    You have left quite alot of information about yourself on here. I suggest you request a change of username with the site admin, and edit out some of the information.
     
  10. Ive been using forums for years JonnoJonno. Ive always used the same user name on every forum. I believe that if I want to voice an opinion its best to do it with my real name instead of hiding behind a fake one. 'What you see is what you get' kind of thing.

    But if Admin want me to change it due to security or anything I will.

  11. I totally respect JonnoJonno for that. Im trying to find contact for an admin?
     
  12. Just had a chat with my buddy. He reckons he didnt completely fail the test just didnt do what was expected. They have apparently told him that due to the increase in applications your only allowed to test for the original job you applied for and other options werent to be offered.

    This has just put alot more pressure on me now. As if it isnt a stressful process enough as it is.
     
  13. PM sent to admin :D

    If you fail the test outright, you wait 12 monthsfor a re-take.

    If you fail to score high enough for your first choice trade you may ask what jobs are available given your score. If no jobs are available, it means you've failed outright.

    As most trades have around a two year wait, the logic goes that you may as well resit for a job you want rather than hobson's choice as even that is going to take a long time.

    Just to cheer you up, the scores for ET(MESM) have been increased to 5 points higher than the same job in general service - possibly because they want those with the ability to complete training rather than those who only opt to join in the submarine service because it's a shorter wait.

    With regard personal security, there was a UK extremist group who announced they would kidnap a UK serviceman of a particular faith & behead him on TV - fortunately the plot was foiled (so far). Where did they find & locate their intended victims? Facebook & other social network groups.

    Best of luck.
     
  15. Im applying for submarine because it appeals to me not because its a shorter wait (wasnt even aware of this!?)

    Im relieved to hear that I may discuss further options, I have faith that I wont completely fail it!!

    I scored 23/30 25/30 28/30 28/30 on the Navy tests from the book 'succeed at pyschometric testing - practice tests for the armed forces entry level' all in good time on the first attempt.

    My mate must of really bummed out!!
     
  16. And for the record there was a plot for a small group of Islamic extremists to kidnap a soldier on leave not so long ago. And guess where it was?......my home town!! 8O

    I have requested that my username gets changed, not sure if the mod has reieved my message though?

    In the meantime, you can go back to your first post, and remove your brief bio. If I can find out who you are with my limited determination and stalking skill, imagine what a really determined nutter can do :wink:

    (Click edit post, and just remove the personal bits)

    For the record, I was aware it was your home town, hence the reference to it.

    With regard submitting an application to join the RN, my understanding is that fresh applications are only being accepted in 'shortage trades'. Those applying for non-shortage specialisations will only fill out an expression of interest form, be placed on 'hold' & not sit the Recruiting Test until further notice.
     
  19. Thanks for the update Ninja
