    Cool! I didn't get through to the interview. Really annoyed. But I felt I was underaged so at a disadvantage. I was the only one there who was 15. Most were 18 or 19 and at college, studying mechanical engineering. So how old are you, and how did u do on the tests?

    The numerical is not like shl. It's areas, basic subtraction. Ratios, but it's not really easy as you might think. I passed the technical, which is reading passages and answering questions. I passed the numerical The fault and mechanical I failed. This was probably cos I haven't done them at school. People like you are at college so may be studying it. Mechanical is pulleys and stuff. Fault will be explained ,I can't explain it to you. When is your testing day. As sizewellls testing is finished now so?
