No worries, they tend to have better equipment anyway.I don’t know if this warrants its own thread, but I will try here first.
Is anyone else’s ASTB equipment down? I am in NC, trying for weeks to take it but apparently both Charlotte and Raleigh are having system issues, and won’t be up for another 3 weeks. They can’t schedule me yet because of it.
Anyone know an alternative location near NC that is working?
I don't know if this is what you're looking for or not?Hi all! Does anyone have a working link/code for the Peterson online test? I've found and used the link before, but I cannot seem to find it again, and my old access code is not working anymore. Thank you in advance.
OAR means nothing to us Marines. I know you wrote that back in January, but stick with those scores. I was enlisted to commission, so I can't comment on the PFT. Know this, when you go to OCS, expect to lose pull ups and get faster at running. IN fact work on running now. That is one thing I wish I did more of, but when you have been in the Corps for 9 years and go to (your second bootcamp again) running isn't something you enjoy. With that being said, I ran a 21:20 before I got there, and left with a 19:08 3 mile, to put things into perspective. My tangent is over, but OAR means nothing to us, thats not how the OCS process works for us to get in.First off, big thanks to everyone who's taken the time to post tips and info in here.
Took it recently and scored a 47 5/7/6...my recruiter seemed happy that I passed, but I was honestly pretty disappointed in myself. I feel like I put too much effort into studying for the aviation portion, and neglected the OAR material.
I know the only person who can make the decision to retake it is me...but I'd like some input on whether it's worth retaking it or not. I meet the standards for Marines, however i'm not sure that the OAR portion will be competitive for the board selection.
Shooting for SNA
Prior service Marine
Typically I'd shoot for getting at or above all 6's....typically 7/7/7 is a more 'comfty' score (yes I made that word up). Also, I got a 7/7/6 and a 53...while I won't hear from any board until 2 years from now since i'm in the NROTC program at VT these scores have been very consistent for prorec both on this forum and within my unit to give you an idea.What is the typical score for SNA selects?
With the vast trove of resources and guidance on this forum, you have everything you need to determine a successful study plan. The information is right here -- you just need to put it together in a way that works for you. While it's commendable that you fit in several hours of study time, despite a busy schedule, extensive amounts of study time mean little if you aren't studying effectively.Hello everyone, I think I really do need help with study material or tutor. I took my OAR test the first time scoring 33 and retake it yesterday and still scoring 36. So I have just only one last shot. Have looked into most material people post in here and its just a bunch of them, I used Peterson's study guide most in studying this last time. Pls if anyone can come to my aid with a study material, website, study plan or something I will appreciate it a lot. ..
