The Royal Navy – What they are looking for during the selection

Before we tell you more about how our resource will help you to pass the Royal Navy DAA, let’s first recap on what the navy are looking for in successful candidates:

The selection tests to join the Armed Forces are carefully designed in order to assess the key skills, qualities and personality that is required for a challenging, yet deeply rewarding career. It takes a special person to show the correct determination, will-power, fortitude and charisma for a job in the Armed Forces. Ultimately, this career path is not just a profession, it is a life choice. A life choice that you will need to embed into your daily routine.

A job in the royal Navy comes with great responsibility. Responsibilities that not only effect you, but your fellow colleagues, your family, and even your country. You will be responsible for upholding and maintaining security, protection and assistance to:

  • Protect and safeguarding procedures are carried out to guard our economy.
  • Prevent conflict from arising, particularly overseas.
  • Provide security for home and international waters to maintain stability and prosperities of British economy.
  • Maintaining a ‘state of readiness’ to protect and fight for our country when required.
  • Provides response when disaster strikes in order to aid humanitarian conditions.

In times of conflict, chaos and disruption, the Royal Navy plays a significant role in implementing safeguarding procedures that provides prosperity and stability for British economy. It takes a well-grounded person to understand the extent of challenges that come with a job in the Naval Service.

Considering a career in the Naval Service is the first step of changing your life forever. You need to fully grasp what is required for a person who wishes to pursue a career in the Armed Forces. You should not enter this decision lightly, you need to take the time to form a solid conclusion based on logical reasoning and thought processes.

In order to give you a better understanding of the type of person the Royal Navy is looking for, here are a list of some of the qualities and skills required to join the Armed Forces.

Remember, this list is not extensive. There are many other skills and qualities that recruiters look for in potential employees. Depending on the job position for which are applying, will depend on what skills are valued the most.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE TEST

The Royal Navy Defence Aptitude Assessment (DAA) will specifically assess a candidate’s academic and intellectual knowledge in an array of topic areas. These topics are chosen, so that recruiters are able to identify the skillset in which a person possesses, and whether it tailors to the specifications of the job role.

For the DAA, the test will be separated into four key areas. All of which, will need to be passed in order to move on to the next stage of the assessment. These tests will measure your skill level in the following areas:

  • Spatial Reasoning
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Numerical Reasoning
  • Mechanical Comprehension
  • Electrical Comprehension
  • Work Rate Test

You are ultimately being tested to decipher your intellectual, critical and technical abilities. These tests are primarily used to evaluate your overall performance in order to understand where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and demonstrate how well you can cope with the technical and demanding nature within the Naval Service.

The tests are usually carried out at the Armed Forces Careers Office and will be under strict timed conditions. Details of the time restrictions and number of questions per exercise will be provided in your recruitment literature. Your recruitment literature is key! Make sure you take the time to thoroughly read through the whole resource so you are fully aware of the expectations of your assessment. The pass mark for the Royal Navy Recruiting test will very much depend on the technical ability level required for the post for which you are applying; although a pass mark of 50% is normally sufficient for the majority of branches.

Sample Royal Navy DAA Questions

To help you get a better understanding of the Royal Navy recruiting test, let’s take a quick look at a few sample questions.

NUMERICAL REASONING

Numerical reasoning skills are assessed to determine a candidate’s ability to process numbers and data and perform mathematical calculations.

EXAMPLE


If a woman walks for 6 hours at a pace of 4km/h, how far will she have walked?

A. 20km

B. 21km

C. 22km

D. 23km

E. 24km

EXPLANATION
ANSWER = E, 24km. To work this answer out all you need to do is multiply the 6 hours by the 4 km/h to reach the total of 24 km. Remember that she is walking at a pace of 4 km per hour for a total of 6 hours.
VERBAL REASONING

Verbal Reasoning is the ability to analyse and comprehend information. The Navy selection process uses this form of aptitude test as a way of measuring candidates’ ability to read through information and ‘pick out’ key information.

EXAMPLE


Read the following passage and answer the related question.

Although there is not a clear cause for abdominal pain in children, it may be a symptom of emotional disturbance, especially where it appears in conjunction with phobias or sleep disorders such as nightmares or sleep- walking.

It may also be linked to eating habits: a study carried out in the USA found that children with pain tended to be fussier about what and how much they ate, and to have over-anxious parents who spent a considerable amount of time trying to persuade them to eat.

Although abdominal pain had previously been linked to excessive milk-drinking, this research found that children with pain drank rather less milk than those in the control group.

Question 1: Abdominal pain in children is caused by eating too much?

A. True

B. False

C. Impossible to Say

ANSWER = C = Impossible to Say
EXPLANATION

The passage does not state whether or not abdominal pain is caused by eating too much, therefore this must be considered ‘Impossible to Say’

SPATIAL REASONING

The Spatial Reasoning part of your Royal Navy DAA is to assess a candidate’s ability to visualise movement or rotation of shapes and visual images:

EXAMPLE


EXPLANATION: If you stack the shapes correctly as per letters on the middle shape, the shape on the right hand side will sit directly on top of the middle shape, whereas the triangular shape on the left hand side will sit up against the ‘B’ side of the middle shape, this forms the answer B.
ANSWER: B is the correct answer.
MECHANICAL COMPREHENSION

Mechanical Comprehension tests are an assessment that measures an individual’s ability to understand mechanical concepts. The tests are usually multiple-choice in nature and present simple, frequently encountered mechanisms and technical situations. The majority of Mechanical Comprehension tests require a working knowledge of basic mechanical operations and the application of physical laws.

EXAMPLE


A lever consists of a bar which is balanced on a fixed point, known as the fulcrum. If you needed to lift the weight, you need to work out how to calculate the force needed.


EXPLANATION

F = (weight x distance from fulcrum to weight) ÷ distance from fulcrum to point where force is being applied.

F = (80 x 9) ÷ 12

F = 720 ÷ 12

F = 60 lbs

ANSWER = 60 lbs
ELECTRICAL COMPREHENSION

What is the voltage across the battery?

A. 3.5V

B. 12.25V

C. 7V

D. 1.25V

C = 7V
The circuit contains two elements that share the voltage. Therefore, the overall voltage of the battery is as follows: 3.5 + 3.5 = 7V.

WORK RATE TEST

During the DAA, you will be required to undertake a Work Rate Test. This form of test assesses your ability to work quickly and accurately whilst carrying out routine tasks;

QUESTION 1: Which of the answers below is an alternative to the code 4H9?

DAA WORK RATE TEST SAMPLE

ANSWER: D is the correct answer. (Red square original code. Green circle alternate code from same column.
