An aptitute test is just that: a means of measuring your suitability for the trade. The subject material is developed based on what fundamental skills are needed to become a skilled, knowledgeable tradesperson. If you do not score well on the test, perhaps it means your future lies in another direction...

You obviously have the smarts. In fact you might have to throttle back a bit. Remember the basic difference between an electrical engineer and an electrician - an electrician knows a little bit about everything while an an engineer knows everything about s.f.a. lol
