  3. Peel spuds and do a BA board, your in!

  4. That'll help.
  5. I wonder if they still use chinagraph BA boards. I assume it's all electronic nowadays.

    The youth of the day probably expect there to be an app for that.

    Boards and Chinagraphs are still used.

  7. We have boards with digital clocks built in. Chinagraph is still used on the board and the BA controller still requires a timepiece as the one built in to the board can not be relied on
  8. I don't know how old you are, but if you do not have a GCSE at grade 3 or better I would enroll for both Maths & English at your local college. Preferably before sitting the RN examination.
  9. I Tell you what, I'm on top of everything apart from my mechanical comprehension, that's the 1 bit I struggle on...

    Practise the tests and you'll be ok. I knew it was my weak area, concentrated on it and I didn't do too bad in the end.

  11. Thank you for that, I do intend to focus on that area... what did you use to revise with?

  13. I've been hitting up the library looking at the GCSE standard mechanical books as advised by the C/Sgt at the AFCO. Fingers crossed for tomorrow (even though my maths is quite frankly piss poor. "If 4 is a and 7 is b what is the square root of a turnip?" As far as I'm concered, when you start using letters not numbers that makes it English not Maths!)
  14. ?

    Stupid question... what's a ba board?
  15. did you find any books?
  16. Ha sorry went on a rant there due to sleepless nights revising!

    Get to your local library mate everything you need is there. I've been living there and the gym the past few weeks

    It's to do with fire fighting onboard and breathing apparatus. You'll learn about it on the basic sea survival course before joining your first ship. Nothing to worry about now.

  18. and for the comprehension exercises/ revision look under the GCSE section. Some pretty good exercises to help you (helped me definitely)
  19. Word of warning guys the RN Chefs course is the hardest in the navy - no-ones ever passed it!!!
