How many points on BARB test?

Alright lads,
I have my BARB test on Monday, I am obv doing mock tests and revising for them now, I was just wondering will the AFCO look for a certain amount of points? or expect potential Para's to get more points than the standard pass mark?
Cheers.

Re: Is the Parachute Regiment still recruiting?

BARB TESTS

Just wondering what level or how hard the BARB tests can be compared to, especially the numeracy part as that is my weakness however I am very eager and willing to work hard to practise for them.
Any tips or useful info would be much appreciated.
Many Thanks :D

Re: Just a hello for now

Do you know what type of pull ups you have to do for the fitness tests, over - arm pull ups or standard palms facing yourself?
Many Thanks.
