    Cheers, hadn't seen the first post! The practice seems to be going ok at the moment, I just need to get my head in gear over the mechanical stuff, seems to be where I'm falling short. (Pardon the pun)

    Passed Recruitment Test this morning thank *text deleted*! Didn't find it as challenging as I thought it would have due to the revision and practice I put into it. I bought the how to pass the Royal Navy recruitment test book which I found very useful.

    I have my Recruiting Test on the 24th of November. When I go what will I need to wear? Does it matter?

    I had mine last week and wore a suit, another guy I sat the test with had smart trousers, shirt and a jumper. Just look smartish, no creased clothing and clean shaven.

    One thing I would say which worked for me is, if you have an analogue watch bring one. I took it off and placed it in front of me and would set the time to hit 12:00 at the end of each timed segment, was perfect for keeping on track.
    It has to analogue though, you aren't allowed digital watches is what the guy told me.

    Every day's a school day - I've not heard that myself -or if I have, I've forgotten ;)

    The logic is, I suppose, that a digital watch could have a calculator or even nowadays, a web browser, a camera, etc.

    Makes sense. I wore my running watch when I did mine though and it's most definitely not analogue. Seems like there's not a blanket rule for this.

    If it is a blanket rule, my oppo @CHUB! will be able to confirm.

    Like I said, it's a new one on me.

    As @Ninja_Stoker says, there isn't a hard and fast rule about watches. Some smart watches store files and texts and also beep. If you have time to set timings then respect. For most people you don't even have time for that.
    However if anyone has the 'freeze time' watch then I would endorse it's use!

    There's definitely a lack of time in the test so wherever you can save time the better. The reason I would definitely recommend a watch is because there was literally no clock in the hall where we took ours. If you know the time then you know roughly how long you can spend on each question and, if necessary, guess the remaining questions before your time's up. If you don't know the time you'll be unnecessarily panicked and probably end up running out of time.

    Are you able to jot down notes while taking the tests?

    There is room to do 'workings-out' on the left hand page of each section in the answer book to help you arrive at the appropriate multi-choice answer, but at about 18-32 seconds per question time is tight.
