    @Ninja_Stoker I have a friend who failed the RT test 2years ago and is thinking about re-applying. If he failed again this time round is it all over? Thanks

    SF.

    Also how many subtraction and addition questions are there? That's all I'm good at! Haha and multiplication. Thanks

    You are allowed two attempts at the recruit test. If, after several years have elapsed, the Area Recruiting Manager may consider a third attempt in exceptional circumstances. I'd estimate there are about 6-8 basic arithmetic questions.

    @Ninja_Stoker what's the score needed in the reasoning part of the test? I understand I need minimum of 10 in maths and verbal,12 in mechanical. Was just wondering as it's the one I seem to struggle on the most!

    There is no minimum score in reasoning but the all-up total you should aim toward still needs to be about 50% .

    I was told 52/120 overall to pass. But obviously try and get them all right if you can!

    The trouble with aiming for a mark assumes the individual knows how many they have answered correctly. Obviously it gives you a rough idea but as with most things in life, you are advised to aim as high as possible to allow plenty of alternatives should things not quite go as initially planned.

    Awaiting selection after AIB pass
    Got my test booked in for a week today, sorry if the answer to this is buried somewhere in the pages, but is the pass mark for Officers 75% in all 4 of the tests? Or has the mech reasoning pass mark been dropped? Ta

    I'm not too sure if the mechanical mark part is dropped for officers but I'd still make sure you study it because I failed the first part (General Reasoning) and only because I did really well on the other 3 sections did I get given the pass. So had I not done so well on the mechanical comp I may have been failed overall. I'm not too sure what the pass is for officer but when I was studying for it I always aimed for 75% which means I could afford to get 7 wrong out of the 30 questions on each section and to be honest I'm terrible at maths and left school 5 years ago and I aced it. Same with the mechanical part, I have no idea about mechanical stuff but most of the questions are very basic understanding of physics. What I will say is know how a plug is wired, I've never in my life opened a plug so guessed the questions regarding the plugs :D

    It's definitely worth getting a grip on Speed, Distance, Time problems before AIB. It will be a real confidence boost too. The arithmetic is easy and based upon simple rules but practice definitely pays off. My godson started working on very basic SDT problems and he can whizz through quite complex ones now.
