Hey Daisey welcome to Boards Their are actually no math questions for this process, thankfully. If you look at www.publicjobs.ie and find the information for the Garda Recruitment their is some really invaluable info there and for stage1 read the Garda familiarisation Booklet - it outlines the tests for this stage and has examples and solutions for you.
Stage1 is made up of 3tests
1) Skills Experience
2) Analytical Reasoning and
3) Job Simulation Exercise
Hope this helps you out someway Good Luck if you apply
i did the aptitude test in 1996 and did very well, have re applied for the garda today and am just womdering is it worth doing a day course to prepare for the aptitude tests?
cant do you any harm,im gonna do one
just wondering lads wats the price for doing a course for stage 1 . i have passed it twice be4 but want to make sure i pass it this time
depends on who you go to..bit pricey 100-150.well worth it though
Hi Celtic, can you please recommend a good course in Dublin? Many thanks.
Hey guys, just wondering if you're expected to answer all 40 questions in the analytical reasoning section within 20 mins?? That seems a bit crazy doesn't it??
It is very much possible alright ... I answered every question in all 3sections on the day of the exam back in February ... Get yourself as much sample questions as possible and practice them over and over
anybody got a good site were they have analytical diagrams?
sorry dont know any . it is definitely the hardest part of stage 1 . on the public jobs website in the prep material they give you some examples and reasons why . keep going over that till you have a good understanding of it
