    Does anyone know the pass mark for RM officers in the recruit tests? Is there different pass marks for the different sections?

    Yes.

    It's not officially in the public domain. Suffice to say you need to be targeting about 75% or better in each section.

    Bizarrely, unlike Other Ranks, there is no pass fail score in the mechanical comprehension (RT4)section for Officers. The irony being RT4 is directly linked to weapons handling proficiency and map reading skills, which could give rise to certain assumptions :)

    Thanks for that, I've got my tests in a couple of day and have been using the richard McMunn armed forces test book do you know if the tests are harder or the same as in the example booklet? And does that mean that if I fail mechanical comprehension I could still pass overall.

    Much as I'm not a fan of Mr McMunn because he sells stuff that's freely available, I have to concede his psychometric test is pretty good.

    I had my tests today and am glad to announce I passed:D I wasn't told the exact scores but I scored highly in all, most points were dropped in mechanical comprehension but was told it was a good pass overall

    Yep, ironically, when I sat the recruit test as I started out as a careers adviser, my lowest score was in mechanical comprehension which as rather heartening to hear - I'd been a marine engineering mechanic for over 22 years. Fortunately, I think I got away with it.

    So is 75% not necessarily needed? When I did one in 2014 I had to get 75% in each section, at least according to my AFCO and he wouldn't take my officer application further because I scored under with the maths and had to switch to a commando application. Have things changed?
