The pack contains practice material for Stage 1 and Stage 2. You only need to practice for the tests they have told you about (that you’ve outlined above). The other tests are for Stage 2.

Similar question, is the test when you have to look at the grey square in part 1? Also the images which appear for a sec and you have to choose what was there I.e motor vehicle, road sign etc
Thanks

If same as GTR 15 questions in 45 mins. All I will say is the DFFT is a lot harder than the practice ones they send and the one you can purchase from OPC. Was nearly my downfall

Do you have any suggestions how to prepare for the dfft please, yes the practise was way too straight forward.

Hi, It is good, however first link seems an error. It is not working.

Can't get the link work for some reason but if you type 'Paddle Your Kanoo Reading Memory Test' into Google, it's the first result at the top of the page

Is the ARL test identical to the test done for mtr at home?
Im not sure mate, as j never got that far with MTR( which is weird because had the OPC checked, they would of seen I've already passed the VSE)

Doesn't matter mate, MTR stipulate all online tests have to be completed regardless of previous psychometric passes. If successful and invited to stage one, previous passes then come into play.

Hi Vantime, nothing. I emailed them and they said the person dealing with it is on annual leave till 29th July!
Hi MayMay, thanks for letting me know. When I log into the MTR site it still shows as 0 Applications in progress and 3 emails older than 3 weeks. The suspense is killing me lol.

Make sure you're putting work in for the DFFT as this is definitely the hardest part of the day, practice the dots test as that will make the bourdon easier on the day.
From what I understand the dfft is completely diffferent on the day itself. The practice material for that test that they sent was easy

100% percent the practice material is a lot easier BUT does get you some good practice in. On the day its a bit more in depth but if you find the practice material easy then you will be fine with the real thing...
