I have just recently handed in my application to join the Royal Navy, my first choice is for a career as 'seaman specialist'. First I am concerned about the Psychmetric test that you have to take. I am practicing and I have ordered the book: 'Practice Tests for the Armed Forces Bernice Walmsley'. I assume the book will have the information I need, but, until it arrives can anyone tell me how many marks I have to get in order to be accepted. Second question: I am slightly long sited and have read the guidelines for eye defects but they do not seem to clearly state if you will be accepted for having a squint e.g. one of my eye is always a little in the corner. I believe it is called 'strabismus' Although this condition can affect certain things such as playing sports, it has never affected my working performance (in the gym) Does anyone know if this will affect my application? I woould be grateful for any assistance and hope I am not asking questions that get repeated all of the time here. Unfortunately due to work commitment I do not really have all day to scout through the forum looking for answers (dam!!) Thank you for any help given.
