    Hey everyone,

    I'm new here and just this morning sat my RAF AST exam (my first ever one)

    Unfortunately, the AFCO say I haven't passed. I knew I wasn't going to do very well on the Maths section ( and I only scored a 2 on it). It's just an area I always struggle with unfortunately.

    My breakdown is as follows...

    Group Scores

    A: 33
    B: 32
    C: 33
    D: 40

    Specific Skills
    (VR) 4
    (NR) 2
    (WR) 3
    (EC) 4
    (MC) 5
    (SR) 3

    What I wanted to know was what does this group score mean and how is it calculated? They said today that my understanding of electronics, and mechanics is very good. I think I was more nervous than anything with the insanely low time limits so I rushed quite a bit. It's now been seven years since my proper GCSEs. I know I did exams at University, but these were pretty easy and were just miniature essays within a set time limit of usually an hour or so, and if you read the reading and or resource material and remembered it (you pretty much got either a 2:1 or first lol).

    I also meet the criteria on quite a few things, but then the group scores mess it up.

    Regards

    James
