I have to get my NSRT booked after lockdown and was wondering if a calculator is allowed during the test

I did mine last year before they removed the NSRT for officer applicants, and they weren’t provided so I don’t think they’d be allowed .

No you can not use a calculator- you get a side of the question paper to do you rough working out and 16 minutes for 30 questions- If you have GSCE,s - English, Maths, and a science based subject at Ds or 3/4 and above (this alters depending what role you are applying for) or maths functional skills L2 you may not be required to sit the recruit test anyway.

Thanks The Guide so i take it written NSRT's are now being conducted again ? (Have they stopped that practice of automatically calculating your NSRT Mark based on your high school results).

They resumed some time ago - lock down restrictions allowing- so at present no NSRT will take place until at least Dec 2nd onwards
