Hi,

This is my first post :)

I have applied to join RFA as a Seaman Apprentice. This will be a big career change for a 40-something IT worker, but it is something I really, really want.

I have completed my online application, and have been invited for a Psychometric Test on 1st March. I need to complete the paper Application Form also. Any advice on completing this would be hugely appreciated.

Quick question - for the Psychometric Test, do people wear a suit? Just wanted to make sure I don't "over-dress" or "under-dress"?

All tips, advice greatly appreciated. Wish me luck.

Thanks in advance.

When I went for mine everyone was in a suit, as well as myself. I always think it's better to be over-dressed than underdressed, good first impressions and what not. Good luck for the test!

Had my Recruitment Test this morning. Thought it went ok, though I may have struggled a bit with the maths section. Fingers crossed for me.

There were 6 other people doing the test along with with, 3 applying for the Marines, 1 for the Navy and 1 for the RFA.

I at my test last Thursday in Southampton.
Got my results this morning. Passed the tests, but not selected due to excessive applications for the role.

Where did you sit your test?

Ah man, sorry you didn't get selected. What role did you apply for?

I sat my test at HMS Calliope, the Naval Reserve training unit up here in Newcastle
