You may be getting confused with 33 Engineer Regiment (EOD). However, judging by your grammar, spelling, syntax etc, I think you may struggle to reach the required score.
(I am in no way proclaiming to be an expert wordsmith, I can just about string a sentence together)
(I hope i haven't been wah'd)

With your punctuation skills, I wouldn't let you near any type of explosive!

Speak to your AFCO, specify which Reg you wish to join, then request the BARB test pass rate req, then practice on the British Army Website
If they can't give you the Info you won't get it here.
Good luck either way

AT EOD - Guided missile crashed, failed to function - Assess situation apply safety actions as appropriate, assess safe waiting period to allow for capacitors to discharge and thermal batteries to cool (whilst waiting can begin initial investigation into how/why the missile failed). Approach missile, or parts thereof. If in bits assess which require explosive demolition and which can be safely recovered for investigation. If intact assess location of explosives components, prepare the minimum amount of PE4 required to destroy each component, apply the multiple demolition charges to the multiple explosive components. Ensure initiation commences from warhead (so as not to send the missile propulsive and to collapse the HEAT cone thus preventing a slug being thrown forward). Initiate, check and ensure safe dem, recover any components usable in investigation. Complete investigation. Pack up return to det, write up investigation, prepare for next task of unit inspection/accident investigation/IED/Safe to Move etc etc etc.

Potentially a very controversial comment but here goes anyway.......
As this is in the TA forum I'll assume its a TA related question. It is my understanding that there are no gradings in the BARB test for TA Applicants. Its a straight pass/fail across the board irrespective of intended trade. Therefore the pass mark is the lowest Regular grading (I believe that's infantry - no offence intended.)
BUT. It may well have changed since both TA and Regular BARB tests are now all done in the AFCOs.I Piss Excellence.
