    thats proper weird because my DO said it was very high and that was one of the reasons i got picked for the UY scheme. How did i get on the scheme then with such a low score?

    It's out of 120, so 119 is quite good, well above average in fact.

    At long last, Chapter 5 of BR3 is now visible to all & it actually tells you the Recruiting Test scores required for each branch & the gradings per score.

    In 6 years, the highest score I've seen is 117, so take a medal from the bucket for getting 119! :wink:

    Looking at my service docs, it would appear that I similarly got one or two wrong also, however it's always possible the person marking the test could've made a mistake. :wink:

    Thanks for this information, very interesting to see, can you explain to me in the table, what do the columns PQAS, VA, CP, and H mean?

    Many thanks

    CP and VA are Colour Perception and Visual Acuity. No idea what the other 2 are.

    You don't need to know that.

    As Drakey says it’s a case of need to know but since the Book of Reference is now accessible to all on the RN Website reference library, which is a "reet rivetin' read"...

    If you’re that bothered the PQAS is explained in BR3 chapter 10 & the 'H' is explained in BR1750A Chapter 1.

    The Recruiting Test is the same for Officers & Other Ranks, relevant scores listed in BR3 above.

    Upper Yardmen

    The RN refers to those promoted from the lower deck to become officers as Upper Yardmen. Those aged over 30 years of age are known as Senior Upper Yardmen (SUY) and will have several years of relevant naval experience plus 4 GCSE's including maths & English. In recognition of this they receive a bespoke package of Naval General Training for 7 weeks intended to build upon the skills and knowledge they have acquired during their careers, thus avoiding repetition in areas in which they are already competent. For those aged under 30 years, known as Upper Yardmen they will join Initial Officer Training and conduct the full 28 week package. Upper Yardmen need a minimum of 5 GCSE's including maths & English, grades A*-C.

    Happy reading. :lol:

    Given the current penchant for dumbing down to artificially inflate pass rates i reckon your average rock ape could have a decent stab at that :roll: :roll:
