Hi, I am in the TA, in the process of joining up. I have spoken to Herford ACIO today and I have passed my RG8 and must now go for my final interview and take a "basic skills test" I spoke to a civie there and she said It is a maths/english test. I have never heard of this before, only at ADSC for certain trades. I just spoke to online careers and they told me you have 45 questions in 60 minutes. A-D Grade questions (GCSE) Top mark is 60. For my trade, he said I have to get 60.... TOP MARKS!??? I find this a little strange/worrying! Anyone in the know (IRON)......or done these tests please give me ANY info as I'm stressing out now!!
