Couple of TST questions

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've done a bit of research and apparently the TST is a multi-answer test, and you also have a calculator for it. I have the TST brief from my recruiter but it says nothing about a calculator.

    I'm just wondering, if the test is completely calculator surely there is no need to revise long multiplication/division and things like that, as surely you'd just use the calculator for them questions. And if it's multi-choice answer, that means you don't have to show your working out.

    Could anybody clarify a bit? Thanks.
  2. Not all questions require a calculator, unless your a complete idiot.
    It is worht revising methods of division/multiplication etc. for fractions/decimals.
    Also freshen up on your Means/Modes etc.
  3. Bit of algebra as well, good luck using a calc with that ;)
  4. There are some at the selection centre
  5. done this just a short while ago, YOU DO GET A CALCULATOR and a ruler, pencil rubber etc. but you don't need to use them! as previously mentioned a calculator won't help you with algebra so use your head and revise the things that you can't use a calc. for.

    p.s. good luck mate
  6. Sweet. And the test is completely multi-choice answer? So you don't have to show your working out, but just circle an answer right?
  7. Well write the answer in a box (A B C D or E) yeh but some questions need working out so you get a scrap bit of paper
  8. Cool, thanks for the help. Lets me refine my revision down a tad bit, algebra and fractions are of particular focus I think.

    On my list is says to focus on:

    - Fractions
    - Decimal Calculations
    - Directed Numbers and Brackets
    - Indicies
    - Symbolic Expressions
    - Algebraic Fractions and Factorisation
    - Algebraic Fractions
    - Ratios
  9. Significant figures and trigonometry
  10. Here's a tip I wish someone had told me. - All the questions are easy as long as you remember how to do them. So I would advise revising everything and knowing how to do everything as oppose to only revising a few topics but being good on them.

    The test is basically 2-4 easy questions on each topic.
