As ever, when it comes to joining the Royal Marines we advise aiming for maximums rather than minimums.

To be honest, if your score on the practice tests on the RN website is below 50% correct in any of the four sections, then you are better off practising further before sitting the test.

@Ninja_Stoker @The guide I believe I read something saying you only have to take the test in certain situations or they can go off your GCSEs, when is this the case if it's true?

I'm pretty sure you have to take the NSRT, I'd be amazed that they wouldn't have someone conduct them, even under Covid regulations. I don't see how they can assess you from tests they have no control over?

@Brock , You have heard correctly, if you have GCSE,s in English, Maths, and one science based subject at D or above or 4 or above you can be passed in these Functional skills can also be used. If you do not have them you will be required to sit RT either at your AFCO or possibly CTC if it cannot be done prior ( it should be workable in most cases at the AFCO post current lockdown).

@The guide
I don't have my originals anymore but the examination board have this on their website

''Services we provide
  • Certified Statement of Results – to replace a lost certificate
  • Confirmation letter to a third party – eg, universities or employers
  • Verification of certificates
  • Amendments to original certificates''
Would a certified statement be sufficient? Or I could also do this;

''Subject access request
Subject to us holding your results, if you do not require certified documentation then details of your past results can be obtained from us with a subject access request. There is no fee for this, but what you receive is not an official document. If you need to provide proof of your qualifications to an employer, we suggest you check with them first what they will accept.''

Which method is acceptable if I don't have originals?

@Brock if you do sit Recruit Test ensure that you revise first.
University grads have sat Other Ranks' Recruit Test and failed miserably because of lack of preparation. Do not underestimate.
