Not sure what would happen if you failed mate, will just have to take them again. To be fair though mate, I believe that you only have to get 50% in the tests, which shouldn't be too bad. Just go in with a bit of confidence.

The advice I will give is have a go at each question and if if the answer doesnt come to you within a few moment s then move onto the next.You dont get marked down for wrongs answers,so what i did was do the 'easier' questions first then came back to 'harder' ones if I had time.

As far as I know the maths questions aren't really that hard.

If you have good common sense skills then you will be fine!

Don't over-think anything. Plus, try and think of the answer before looking at the possible answers.

I did well on these tests, but they certainly wernt easy some of it isnt just common sense though its just using your brain a bit! as i said in a previous post on the topic though the thing which makes these hard is the time allocated for the number of questions in the section, not the questions themselves so you *text deleted* blast through and if you find yourself stopping to work something out for more than a few seconds.. move on if it comes to it guess!!

good luck to those who have them soon

It's always worth practising against the clock.

The questions individually aren't all that hard, but time is very tight, you cannot afford to dwell on a question as has been said.

If you fail & aren't in full time education, you will end up having to suspend your application by 12 months.

Good luck to you.

I had my psychometrics last week, me, another candidate for the RMC, a RMO and someone for the RN.

The RN applicant failed, and had to come back for more tests in 6 months.

I don't know if this applies for the RM, but it's the same selection process, so I presume so.

I was told it was 6th months and for some reason they must think were apes because commandos have the lowest pass mark of 50% i think.

Oh well my Phycometric showed i was Under the average inteligence :P To which i am quite proud of hehe

You may only undertake a second recruiting test in 6 months if you are in full time education, you can prove it by providing a comfirmatory letter off your tutor to that effect & the Area Recruiting Manager grants permission. If you fulfill those criteria & re-sit in 6 months & again fail, you are probably best reconsidering your future.

Otherwise if you fail the Recruiting test, you are allowed a second attempt in 12 months.
