Like Many NZ Entrance Tests, as part of their selection Process in the Air force, the testing involves General mathematics, word problems and some number puzzles.
Students need to know several aspects if Mathematics such as, Algebra, Number and Trigonometry from NCEA level 1 and 2 and more.
Calculators are not allowed, so students must be very good with their basic facts and most importantly, their speed must be very and quick.
