Out of interest...why an Avionics tech in the Army....why not the RAF? Much more varied a/c to work on.

dont really fancy the way of life in the raf, i come from an army background and the raf careers officer near me was what ill call in a polite way a nob.... so he didnt really sell it to me but the army careers officer has.... plus blue dont suit me hehehe

TsT is fairly easy, it's GCSE standard and multi choice.

I required 16 and got 42 and I would say I am not that great at maths.

If you are worried buy a GCSE revision text book and give it a read.

i got full marks when i did mine and i havent done maths for 7 years. If you wanna go avionics then you will need to be hot on maths.

It aint as easy as it looks all these people that say oh yeah its easy are talking cadswallop true it is all gcse but you need to know the areas...................................................................................................... just make sure your Selection Officer gives
you a good heads up on the subjects covered in the test and study them and you will be ok, but remember there is a secondry test mate where it aint multi choice and you have to show the workings plus then
you have to pass the training!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Its not all hinged on just one test..........................
.................Remember that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

sobmr, what are you on about? There is no "secondary test" at selection! I went for REME Air Tech (one of the most demanding positions, academically, within the Army) and they only test you on the multi choice maths. What differs between trades is the score required to join. There is NO secondary testing, not at selection, and no, we are not talking codswallop, if you find the test at all difficult (by which i mean not being able to answer the questions, or understanding them) then you are a mong.

Its simple: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Standard Form, Algerbraic Equations, Graph interpretation, Angles. Plus some others i forget. It's not difficult.

5 years since i left school now

cant say i remember anythin to do with Standard Form, Algerbraic Equations, Graph interpretation

lol

Seriously, if you're a bit stuck on this, take a look at the GCSE bitesize pages provided by the BBC. You can do some multi choice tests on there and there should be explanations of what the topic is about if you dont have a clue.
