    Hi there, I’ve seen on here someone say that the psychometric test is very similar to the practice one I have been revising, in what way is it similar? Questions or Answers? Thanks.

    The questions are pretty much identical to the real test, with just the values (and therefore answers) altered.

    Nice one thanks, what revision techniques would you recommend, I’m getting anywhere between 70% and 86% on all tests but if the answers are Alfred is there anything els I can do?

    Interestingly the previously restricted Job Eligibility Matrix (JEM) is now in the public domain, so I can tell you that if you are getting 70% correct, you will pass quite comfortably.

    The JEM, for those interested, lists all RN/RM jobs, the recruit test scores required, nationality, academic requirement and medical criteria unique to the branch (such as age, visual acuity grade, colour perception, weight, height and hearing)

    For those who want to know, it's all here: https://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/-/medi...20160714-chap-7-para-0759-jem-rm-rn-rfa-o.pdf

    I feel like I’m getting that percentage because I’ve done the practice test so much that the answers don’t move, now I’m a little nervous as you’ve said the answers will be altered?

    Who? :)
    But seriously, take a look at the questions and the answers and figure out the mechanism of the puzzle. Once you've cracked that you won't care if the values are altered.
    Best of luck.

    It is a test of intellectual capacity rather than memory recall.

    The irony of psychometric testing is that the principle is to "cold test" the individual with no prior preparation, but for some reason, the service has decided to provide practice examples.

    Have a read through the FAQ thread about psychometric tests, there's loads of similar ones online: https://www.royalmarines.uk/threads/royal-navy-psychometric-test-revision-practice.103006/
