Army cognitive test

#1
As part of my application to join the reserves (as a soldier), I've been asked to complete the "Army Cognitive Test". I was wondering what this entails and how difficult it is, I want to be an engineer so I think I need a high score. I practised the BARB online and found it easy but apparently the new test is different. Should I be worried?

Did these tests this afternoon.
They have example questions before you take the main test so go through these however many times you need to until you're happy. All pretty straight forward, just the verbal reasoning i found tricky.
Good luck (remember they are timed with no notice as to when the time is going to run out)

I did the test today I was just wandering when I get my results
I’m not certain but I think it depends on the context of when you did it. I did it online weeks ago and never got any results but I’m joining the reserves and it might be different for regulars. I think the one they send you online is sort of a practice one since you have to do it again at selection. At selection you probably get your results at the end of the day.

Ahh nice one, it was a I was a bit slow with answering it if I'm honest,so I'm a bit worried about it. I'm not very good with computer tests you see

Er? How can you not be very good with computers? I assume that you are aged under 40 mate?
Maybe, you need to brush up on your computer skills at some point bud.

Whre did you get the online test from? Did they send it to you as part of your online application?

They send it through the army portal some way into your application but before you do selection. I’ve done it now at selection and it wasn’t that hard, I got 66 which qualifies you for everything. If you want to be an engineer there is also a maths test they make yo do but it’s just simple GCSE level and multiple choice.

This is a bit of an old thread but I'm going through the same example questions now and I was wondering if you know how many questions are set for you on the test in each section? Thanks.

You get five or so practice questions then you do the real thing, there are basically an infinite number of questions and you have to finish as many as you can in the time limit for each section. They aren't too difficult but some require good short term memory, they explain it all very well at selection so I wouldn't worry too much. I'm not super smart and I still did well and qualified for every role, you just have to be quick and accurate. The test takes about an hour and really isn't anything to worry about. Keep in mind though that if you are applying for a technical role you have to do a technical test as well which is basically a multiple choice maths test that you do on paper, for that you get a calculator so just revise simple maths like fractions and sequences and you should be fine. I'm not great at maths and still did really well at it.
