    What job are you going for and I will tell you if you need to do the TST? Tango Lima has listed most but in the RLC there aren't that many that you actually have to do it for.
     
  3. nods most the RLC especially stackers struggle to write there name.....:biggrin:

    The_Iron - Stackers may not be able to write 'there' name but most will be able to write THEIR name. REME = Top 10 % - Really........

    Yo don't need to do a TST for RA. You join as Gunner crewman and do Phase 1 and Artillery phase 2, you then specialise.
     
  9. Yo right

    Yes Ammo Tech does require you to do the TST - 30 is the score needed.
     
  11. Do the royal artillery definitely not take the technical selection test ?
     
  12. Do C3s need to mate? I heard pass mark for most trades is 16 also.
     
  13. Got ADSC a week on Monday, my second choice requires the TST (R Sigs Electronic Warfare Operator) so been doing some practice Maths as its been around 7 years since my Maths GCSEs. What is the pass mark for that trade?
