College students ‘sailing to success’ with the Royal Navy
Twenty two students studying Public Services or IT courses at John Leggott College have received certificates this morning from sitting the Royal Navy entrance exam.
Lianne Marshall, Assistance Careers Advisor at the Royal Navy Office, Lincoln came into college to congratulate the students personally and hand out the certificates.
The exam consisted of a series of psychometric questions on verbal reasoning, literacy, mathematics and mechanical comprehension. The questions help to give an insight into the academic expectations when joining the Royal Navy, so students who scored highly were incredibly pleased to learn that they had passed the first stage of the application process.
For students that passed specific modules of the tests, this gives them a clear indication of the roles available for their skillset within the Royal Navy, and they will then be welcome to proceed to the next stage of the application process if they wish to pursue this career after college.
Andrew Fisher, Public Services Teacher at John Leggott College, said “The entrance exam gives an idea of the different roles within the Royal Navy that students are most suited to. This is a great opportunity for our students considering a career in the Royal Navy to understand some of the criteria they will need to fulfil, and helps to raise aspirations across our college student body.”
The Royal Navy offers a huge range of lifelong prospects, from engineering to medicine, administration to hospitality and everything in between. You could be policing the world’s oceans, delivering humanitarian aid when natural or man-made disasters strike. Or you could be deployed in combat. No matter what job you do, you’ll be a key part in operations around the world.
