Hi there, got my test in 3 weeks and then touch wood the interview a little later.

Would it help me to wear a suit either to both of them or just the interview?

would it increase my chances at all?

I know it's only the clothing and of course I will be smartly dressed for the test but is it worth getting a suit for the test aswell or i that being too daft?

cheers

yeh of course:p.

but I mean if there were 3 people who got all the same test result for the same job and 1 was dressed in tracksuit bottoms and a hoody!, 1 was dressed smartly jeans and a top, and 1 had a suit on.

I can imagine there been a difference between the 1st and last 2, but would there be a difference IN THE TEST, NOT THE INTERVIEW, between the last 2, (ie; smartly dressed, suited up)

cheers

Sorry Ben - couldn't resist that one, and I do know that you want serious answers. In my experience as long as YOU look clean and tidy, and your clothes are neat and ironed, nothing scruffy, you'll do fine. They'll give you a nice blue suit with all the trimmings when you get to Raleigh!
Don't be too nervous and be yourself, 'cause when it comes down to it, despite his row of medals and stern appearance, the bloke on the other side of the desk is just another human being - unless of course he is a gunnery rate or a crusher!!!

Even when you can't speel or use capital letters,,,,

Anyway, Ben, if you have a suit then it can't hurt. As Tattoo dog says, first impressions are important.

Edited to add, re-reading your first post it doesn't look like you have one, so don't rush out to get one. Smart trousers, proper shoes, shirt and tie will be fine.
