    im thinking of joining the army as a combat medical technician, would i need to take the TST? (Technical selection test) because on this website: http://bootcampmilitaryfitnessinstit...by-tst-scores/
    ...it doesn't say you do but i have a feeling you do.
    if i do, how hard is it, and what would be the pass score?

    everyone needs to do selection and basic training. cant say how hard it is though.

    No I don't think so, the TST is for technical trades. Despite the name, a CMT would not be classified as a "technical" role. If you want to you can do the sample test on the Army website. I had a quick look and it doesn't look that difficult. I just got bored 10 questions in.

    CMT's are not required to undertake the TST, which is for the technical trades only (as identified in the link you quote). The T in CMT is a red herring with regards the TST. Regards, Andrew (Founder, Boot Camp & Military Fitness Institute).
