I assumed the numerical reasoning was replaced with the verify calculation I didn't think both were on it now.

Oh right, glad i asked now. I thought they were easing us in with a few quick fire math questions and then if we get to next stage they will be long, more complicated questions.. 20 questions in 20mins is a bit harsh if they are long ones. It takes me 30seconds to read the question.. Il keep practicing so.

Hi guys sorry posted in wrong place... did my online assessment in August 2016 and have my pct next week! I was also way down the list on order of merit so I think that's why it's taken so long

Thanks for that.. are the shuttles the same as the last campaign and 40 x 15m?? I’m worried about these too, running isn’t my thing. I’ll have no prob with the weight section but I’m concerned about the shuttle runs.. gona start doing some training..

Yeah 40x15m.. I'm the same I can do the rest no problem but I'm struggling with running can do it on treadmill but once I got the fresh air it's much harder for.. my advice measure out your 15m and start practicing the runs training from now will stand to you 😊

Hiya, I did mine on Friday and feel the same.. the maths part went awful. My mind went blank, and I wouldn’t mind but I had been practicing those types of equations for 2 days straight.. Anyway hopefully, the other 2 sections went ok and they will pull us up..

I think in the familiarization material it said April we will know.. so a bit of a wait ahead of us..

I wonder how many applied, it’s very quiet here compared to the 2016 campaign thread.
