Just a quick question, I'm pretty sure I don't but just to clarify, will I need to take a calculator?

Thought so, just wanted to check.

Thanks, but all being well I won't need it (the luck, that is). Aced the practise questions in the booklet and online. 100% in all sections apart from Mechanical Reasoning/comprehension where it was aroud 80%.

Woo, I passed.

Wasn't worried about it to be honest, I knew it was relativly easy.

The guy who told me if I'd passed or not, said "results like that, can I encourage you to go into a more technical branch? Perhaps something with engineering etc."

He wouldn't say my result, as expected, but he said any path was open to me with my mark. So overall, pretty chuffed!!

Well done.

It's always worth remembering that if you get a decent Recruiting Test score, there are jobs available in the Navy IF you do not pass RM Commando selection.

For most people it's the last thing on their mind, but it's worth remembering if things don't pan-out as planned.

Will the results of this test decide which specialisations you can go for once you've been in for 2 years?

Surprisingly not.

As long as you are recommended & there's training places available then you can undertake the course.

congratulations on the passRRO, rubbish name *text deleted*. *text deleted*
how did you get on with the maths section? made me realise how retarded i've become since school- equations, trig, square roots etc i was tempted to cry and run out the room flailing my arms, fortunately i controlled myself...

*text deleted* I don't like the name! Ah well,

Maths was the hardest section for me. I finished all the answers though and think I did pretty well. Only about 3-5 wrong on that section I think.

yeah the AFCO guy said maths was my weakest part, :Wisper: don't tell anyone but when i tried the "mock" one you get given i got three of ten right in the maths section (frustrating *text deleted* i aced the other sections)- eg (from the booklet you get given) if x=a2-b, then a=?. so i left it, seems like a good enough answer to me. yup a does =? apparently that's not acceptable...who knew. or factorise x2=8x=16 i thought it was (2x+4)(x+4). it's not. frustrating as i got a B at GCSE and studied stats and pure maths for a year at A level, you'd have thought i'd remember more right .... it made me feel old man, and stupid
