Some Recruit test questions, answers appreciated.

Hey, I've recently been to a ICP and have sent my application for the recruit test. Just some general questions I want to ask. First off what would be a past rate for a Marine engineering technician in the recruit test? I would also like to ask what life is like for submariners and if they find it hard.

High mark required therefore pass rate lower than for Seaman Warrior, dark and dirty, yes especially when the bromide wears off.

PS Ninja_Stoker our friendly cyber AFCO man will be along direckly.

Life for submariners is great and we normally find it hard first thing in the morning!

Technical trades, as you'd expect, require a relatively high overall recruiting test score, particularly in the maths and mechanical comprehension sections. There are minimum required scores, not maximums.

Knowing the exact score required is unlikely to benefit the individual unless you intend answering the first 66% correct then nipping outside for a tab and a tin of beer inbetwween each section whilst everyone else finishes off the section. Suffice to say, aim for 100%.

Submarine-wise, it's probably best to ask the ever-helpful submariners on the site as they will always give a helpful, cheery insight. Probably.

Generally speaking submariners get paid around £300 per month 'extra knowledge' or specialist Submarine Pay, once qualified, together with a £5000 (pre-tax) Golden Hello. You also get to save a fortune on suntan cream, and some (not me, of course) would say soap, too.

The things you have to consider about submarines is the disadvantages such as limited scope for overseas visits (although when they do occur, you are accommodated in a hotel when alongside)and the limited ability to communicate with home when deployed operationally.

Thanks for the very helpful reply ninja, I knew it would be high just hope it is not 90% haha. And one of the main reasons I want to join the navy is for the traval, am guessing submarines aren't for me then. Also one last question, how much career opportunities would a Marine engineering technician have after the navy?
