Right quick question.. If you don't get the required pass mark for the branch you oringinally applied for depending on you pass mark will they discuss what other branches you may qualify for? Or is that it you have failed..

Mate chill out a bit. All these questions it seems like your fretting about it. I've got mine a week today, dont stress about it, It does nothing to help you. Type RT into the search bar and you'll find Ninja has posted ALOT of links to practice tests. Look at the RN booklet about the RT and just base your revision off those questions. Get a family member to look at the booklet and write you a practice test??

Not quite... Everyone that failed mine got pulled into another room and the Army careers officer had an interview/presentation with them so see if they were suitable for any of the Army roles. Don't think you can apply for the Navy again
 
Am not fretting about it, I've done my revision and can only try my best on the day.. But I was just wodering. Because I just thought if you hit higher than the requirements (10 marks in the english and maths) put didn't manage to score the pass mark for thr brach you orignally applied for that they would discuss other branches you may have qualified for?

Yea you will.

On completion of the test you will be told if you passed or failed and if you have failed they will discuss your options.

You will then recieve a print out of the job specs of the jobs you did qualify for.

So for my recruit test I've been concentrating on the maths and mechanical comprehension side of things I've been revising long multiplication and division and with fractions aswell,percentages,significant figures and for the mechanical side I've been revising how to wire a plug,leavers,pully systems and electrical circuts is there anything else I should revise or? Are the questions hard? Or is it more the lack of time?

I found that there were some I did not know the answer to at all, I skipped them initially and went back and took an educated guess at the end if I had time, think I only missed 1 in the end. Not worth spending time struggling with one question when there might be six more you know that you then don't have time to complete! The lack of time is the hardest part I found, a lot of the questions would be easy if you had as much time as you fancied to work it all out, so I made sure that all of the practice I did was against the clock so that I got used to working quickly and being confident in my thinking. I found brain training for the DS helped alongside going through practice tests online against the clock, cause again it gets the noggin ticking over speedily. I was more nervous then I had been for any exams for some reason, but when you get in the room there is no time to think about being nervous :p so good luck, seems as though the revision you are doing will help alot :)

Hello guys!

Just yesterday I took my RT and failed it. During being told I failed I got told it was just the maths that had let me down which is quite dissapointing. Maths has never really been a strong point for me, I attempted to look at multiple websites to revise for this particular subject, but I guess it wasn't enough to enable me to pass.

After being told I failed I asked when it would be possible to re-take it, I got told a minimum of 6 months. I'm a little disheartened about it but this is really what I want to do, so I'm not going to give up. I'm just here to ask what type of things I need to be revising? Just some basic mathmatics? I want to make sure I cover everything that is possibly going to be in the test next time I re-take it.

Thank you.

Tiz have a look at my advice in the thread; completing all the questions makes a big difference if you didn't complete them all... even if you just randomly tick 5 in the last 20 seconds though you should practice being able to answer all the questions properly in the time provided.

Hi, thank you for the response.

I have no trouble with the times given to complete the questions, that is not a problem for me at all. I did answer all the questions. I answered what I could then went back and looked at the ones I struggled with. I even still had time left over once I had finished doing that. I'm confident with the time limit, I just need to know what to focus on while revising, because the maths is my problem.

Maybe purchase that book i suggested earlier in the thread. Many will tell you that all the materials you need are available freely online and that it is a waste of money but by having the book you can sit down, work in test conditions and do questions that are virtually identical to what you get on test day. Using the book I scored 29/30 on my maths section, which was an improvement of around 5 on the previous time I sat the test.

I'll have a look back through the thread, thank you. =) 29/30? That's pretty good, well done. I hope to have the same success. I'll definately look into it, though. I like the idea of being able to sit down and actually work through it, practicing in test conditions with this would also be a massive bonus!

It's really anoyying to think though, if I was a little better prepared for the maths I would of passed!

Thanks for the help.

The timed maths parts were my biggest worry, I can do maths at my own pace but being out of school for 8 years really didn't help. I spent a couple of hours every few days timing my myself and just going over long division and multiplication etc in preparation for the test and I'm pretty sure that's the only reason I'd passed.
For some I didn't have time or didn't know the answers so just ticked and circled anything, a guess is better than leaving it blank.
