    Evening all,

    I felt it was my duty to pass on my experience from the test. Although it's a small step in the mountain ahead, it will stop you in your tracks of you fail.

    I passed mine today after 4 weeks of hard graft research and revision and if I had to give you one bit of advice it'll be, purchase the book which ninja recommended above. It gives you 4 mock tests which get progressively harder from 1-4. It also supplies you with how to work out each question and explained answers. I paired this up with other resources online to really help and I managed 87% in total so it really pays off.

    One of the lads I was talking to used the navy online test as revision and found it harder. He still passed so its certainly helpful but stay safe and aim for 100%.

    Be presentable, turn up on time and do as your told.

    Good luck

    Having done the psychometric test a couple weeks ago I can safely say if you just do the tests on the Royal Navy website, the actual test is exactly the same format with similar questions.

    I was thinking about purchasing test booklets but decided against it, as long as you practice the tests on the Royal Navy website and have a basic understanding of Maths and English you'll be fine.

    I'll have to disagree here (sorry). The royal navy website does give you a very close comparison but I thoroughly recommend the books mentioned by ninja. I found the test much easier after using the book and other resources online. Stay safe and go for 100%

    I guess it depends on the person really, if someone feels the need to purchase extra study material there's no problem with that. There were a few guys that showed up to the test and they were on their second go, they ended up failing... If only they knew about the extra books ay!

    Whatever resources one uses adequate research and preparation is always a wise plan for any element of a selection process, be it for a military or civilian job.

    It's been noted on this forum before that university graduates have sometimes performed badly on the OR psychometric test, possibly because they underestimated it.

    Is there a specific dress code for the psychometric tests?

    Its the first impression your afco will get of you - so put your suit and try and look as smart as possible, remember to have a shave beforehand as well
