Pass/Fail Tests
« on: April 11, 2004, 17:12:00 »
I‘m off to BMQ right away here and I‘ve been hearing quite a bit about test. Granted, there are tests, I was aware of that, however, I would like to know from the BTDT people which are the pass/fail ones, the Go/No Go and if what ways would make it easier on yourself to pass these tests...everything from physical, to history..weapons test...etc. Thanks guys.

The best way to pass those tests is to pay attention in lectures, take good notes, study diligently when you have the time to do so (breaks, after meals and before bed), and learn drills exactly as your instructors teach them. Ask questions of your instructors at the time if you are unsure of anything. Practice drills and rehearse questions/answers with your peers throughout the course, not just the night before a written test. (And don‘t go in depending on half-remembered one liners from the net.)

The principal pass/fail tests are weapon checks where any safety infraction is an immediate fail. You will get retrained, refreshed and retested if you have difficulty, but repeated failures in one area or difficulty with multiple checks can lead to failure and recourse.
