    The Recruiting Test is 4 sections of 30 multiple choice questions. You are not negatively marked & it is not converted to percentage, simply the number correct in each section added as a total. All this information is in the practice test booklet sent with your appointment to sit the Recruiting Test.

    For the Literacy & Numeracy sections you must get a minimum of 1/3rd correct in each section or you fail for all trades. Your part score needs to be ideally over 2/3rds correct in each section for Air Engineering Technician. For Diver you need to get around 1/2 correct throughout.

    Divers need to pass the Pre-entry Diving Acquaint course in addition to the usual elements of the selection process. On average they take 6 to 9 months to join after passing the recruiting test.
  5. Sun Dodgers are the elite. Should they permit you to even apply to join the Silent Service, you will be very special indeed.
