  1. Hello to All

    I have my phycremetric test tommorow and i am worried that i might fail!. I have had a while to revise but i have had soo much going on lately i have had no time.

    I have used bitesize maths and have worked on the baisics, but the mechanical comprehension i dont have a clue on

    I am planning on joining as a chef, anyone have any idea what mark i should be getting.

    Do they test grammar, spelling, punctuation and use of capital letters? If so, start praying now!

    Enough to demonstrate that you can read a recipe and apply basic maths to scale up for larger numbers: for example, 1 egg takes 3 minutes to boil, boiled eggs for a crew of 200 will therefore take 600 minutes (3 x 200 = 600).
  3. Start by learning how to spell "psychometric".
  4. No wonder we had so much signal traffic if that's how RO's do maths. FYI, if an egg takes 3 mins to boil, eggs for ships company (assuming they all want soft boiled that is), 200 eggs @ 3 mins to boil = 3 mins.

    Haven't you got some flags to hoist?
  5. Cytriactic test perhaps? :roll:
  6. I'm going for Chef aswell and I passed even though I wrote the awnsers on the wrong page LOL. So yeah theres not much need for mechanical comprehension in turning a few nobs and cracking a egg.
  7. I see the selection for cooks hasn't changed any then, listen kids learn to make Cheesy Hammy Eggys, Babies heads and deviled Kidneys and you can't go far wrong.
  8. i am sorry for my terrible writing lol, and yeah i can spell ok, it's just i rushed it when i was writing this post neways

    do you think 50% would be ok for a chef?
  9. I would certainly hope not, 50% is an F grade mate, can you at least shoot for a D?!!

    Not any more, that's the Seaman's part of ship!
  11. It's bllody sad isn't it, Dabbers waving flags, Cooks now called Chefs and the whole S&S branch has got weird names, plus no more WEM's, mind you better an ET than an OM.

    Times thay are a changing
  12. Or to put it another way: Who called the cntu a cook and who called the cook a cnut ?? - Whichever way it goes, good luck mate and I hope you learn the difference between tish on a raft and herrings in....
  13. They'll tell you if you got a high enough score or not so instead of thinking I'll just settle for this why not aim a little higher? If worse comes to worst you can always go back downstairs to the Army recruiting office.
  14. I have just came back from the test and i just passed it for a chef :) and have my interview on tuesday, i thought that the practice booklet that you got was useless, the questions were much harder

  15. You weren't doing in Dundee AFCO by any chance were you?
  16. nah i was at the Darlington AFCO in the north east
  17. Logistic technicians or some such thing they now seem to be called. Bet you can't still have a new mattress despite the one you took over having enough DNA samples to keep plod employed for a generation!
