    Alot of people won't help you out as in all fairness we are all in it against eachother.

    But since its my 2nd year doing the tests (failed only 1 section last year) I feel like I should help.

    There is 5 tests:
    Maths Non calc
    Maths Calc
    Fault Diagnosis (This is the process one)
    Mechanical
    English type one

    For maths and English you can get help on http://www.shldirect.com/practice_tests.html by doing those tests - numerical and the General Ability one.

    For the other ones, just do a quick google of them, and you will sure to find stuff

    for example google Mechanical Comprehension practice tests and you will come up with basically what you get in the tests

    Good luck!

    Sat my test on 26th, and not too sure how long it will take for a reply

    Nice to meet you, Im 16, 17 in September, 5th year at school so you're up one xD

    I passed all 5, but was on the pass mark for the mechanical one (17 out of 30). The others i did really well in, 95 percent and above if i remember right! When i sat them, i thought i was doomed with the mechanical, but i scraped by :P

    you may think that we wont be at same college, but you may be surprised..


    My friend got on the course last year, and he said that fourth valley (FALKIRK) are trying to make it so that next year the people doing instrument and (process(I THINK)) go there also

    Not 100% sure if it will happen though

    Although if you get your 2nd choice and i get first we may be

    Wahey! To be frankly honest, out of all the disciplines, i am open to whatever they think i would be best suited to, as my only information really is the 4 paragraphs on the website - I will go where i am needed to be, and work hard at it.

    Isn't process always in Aberdeen? Im from there so it would be easy for me :P

    ahh that would make sense if they were to put you doing process.. would save them from paying for accomodation for the course.

    Maybe its electrical thats moving up from Middlesborough then

    Im on the same boat as you here, dont mind what I do at all

    though since I've been moved to ECITB. THey only provide training for:
    Instrument(offshore)
    Mechanical(onshore)
    Electrical(onshore)

    I seriously have no idea what'd happen, but as I said... either way Im happy

    Now just time for the interviews... gotta get these exams past first though
