The NSRT will prove your suitability for a career in the Naval Service. Make sure you’re properly prepared by answering the example questions below, and keep trying to improve your score. 



Part one is a test of your ability to process information, recognise relationships, and tell the difference between relevant and irrelevant information.

To make the most of this practice test, keep track of the timer on screen and plan your answers accordingly. Your score is calculated solely on the number of correct answers you achieve, so if you get stuck move onto the next one and revisit if you have time. On the day of your test you will have 9 minutes to complete 30 questions. On the next page you will have 2.5 minutes to complete 8 questions, this allows you slightly more time to practice and get to know the test.

Your time is up and all questions have been disabled. Please submit your test to see your mark.
