selection of aircraft and administrative apprentices
in this country provides for educational and
intelligence tests. Only those who reach at least
a qualifying standard in the educational and
intelligence tests are invited for interview. In
order, however, to reduce the possibility of rejection
to a minimum, it is considered that candidates
under this scheme should be examined on the
educational and intelligence tests in their own
country and sets of educational tests will be supplied
on request. The intelligence tests are for use for
successive entries in rotation.
15. The subjects of the examination for aircraft

mum of 40 per cent.
Candidates for adminsitrative apprenticeships

in it as a bonus. To qualify, candidates must
obtain not less than 50 per cent of the possible
aggregate for all subjects (excluding Science) with
a proviso that at least 35 per cent must be obtained
in the Essay and the English comprehension test.
In the General Intelligence Test a minimum of
30 per cent is required.
16. The interview takes place at a selection
centre at which the candidates remain for one day.
The interview, which is supplemented by lectures
and advice by technical experts, is designed to

successful in training are accepted :

suitable trade in relation to :
(i) their own preference,

(ii) the requirements of the Service.
Shortly after completion of this Selection Centre
procedure candidates report to their training
school for enlistment.

set out in paragraph 4 of this memorandum.
18. The final acceptance of nominated candidates
will be subject to the interview carried out in the
United Kingdom and to confirmation by a Royal
Air Force Medical Board of medical fitness for
service with the Royal Air Force. Any candidates
who are not considered suitable for apprentice-
ships at this stage may, if suitable and willing, be
offered enlistment as boy entrants under the scheme
also set out in Air Ministry Pamphet 293 as an
alternative to rejection.
19. In regard to the assurance required in
paragraph 13(d) the Governor's recommendation

ships will be under the same conditions as those for
cadetships set out in paragraph 8 above.
