The Royal Navy Test (RT) is a battery of four multiple-choice tests covering the following areas: reasoning, verbal ability, numeracy and mechanical comprehension. The test is completed in a paper and pencil format. Each of the Royal Navy Recruit Test’s sub-tests is timed separately by a trained test administrator and the whole thing takes about an hour to complete. Two of the Royal Navy Recruit Test’s sub-tests have a numerical element: the numeracy test and the reasoning test. In the real test, a trained test administrator will read through the instructions for each of the Royal Navy Recruit Test’s sub-tests before you start.

Royal Navy Entry stages

The Royal Navy’s recruitment is a staged process. You must successfully complete one stage before you move on to the next. Successful performance on the Royal Navy Recruit Test means you will go on to have a selection interview.  The pass mark for the Royal Navy Recruit Test varies depending on which branch you are applying to – for example, the most technical branches will require a higher pass mark. But for many of the branches, a mark of fifty per cent is acceptable to pass the Royal Navy Recruit Test.

What does the Royal Navy Entry Test – Numeracy measure?

The numeracy portion of the Navy Test consists of thirty questions that you must complete in sixteen minutes. It does not require the use of a calculator. This is a test of how quickly and accurately you can complete basic mathematical operations, such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The test also requires you to show that you can quickly and accurately use fractions, percentages and basic algebra.

 Instructions for the Royal Navy Recruitment Test

Choose the correct answer from the multiple choice options shown. In the real test you will have a separate answer sheet on which to complete your answers. You indicate the correct answer by crossing through that letter. Make sure that you only mark one answer per question. If you decide to change your answer, blacken out your original answer then cross through the letter for your new answer. Focus on working accurately whilst also trying to complete as many questions as you can.
