  2. Reference your English which you say is very good, are you joking me because based on what I've seen so far, no disrespect, it isn't all that good at all?! The TA exam is rather old fashioned with arithmetic and word comprehension. E.g. dog is to kennel as bat is to........... wicket, boundary, ball, crease - select as appropriate. The RAF test is a little trickier and the English side of things deals with verbal reasoning and the ability to extract relevant information from text. It is very similar to the test you undertake if you're trying to join the police.

    With regards your conviction, it all depends on the severity of what you did and the punishment you were awarded.
  3. This has to be a wah! If not I'd go for the RAF reserves mate, please!
  4. Noooo!!! He wants to be a driver or storeman, (or at least I think that is what he wrote), RLC would be a logical choice. :D :D :D
  5. WAH!!!! Has to be!!
  6. he is in chat right now.Seems genuine

  7. Er... um.... i thought the answer would have been "belfry"?

    Or maybe "batcave". 8O

  8. dog is to kennel as bat is to........... wicket, boundary, ball, crease

    Well done, you're recruited son!!
  9. many thanks for your construtive comments reagrding what to join ,also what the army and raf test involves. will stop using short txt no it pissess folk off for which i do oppologise!! i'd say my english is average .

    again many thanks for the negative and positive views.
