I like the fact that I at least tried the test and the questions were not what I expected
A career as a police officer can be highly rewarding, but it does come with a broad range of challenges that not everyone is capable of handling effectively. As such, the assessment process for police officers is designed to measure your suitability for this demanding line of work, testing core skills, cognitive abilities and behavioural characteristics.

What is the pass score in a police officer test?
This information is not currently available. As the assessment has recently been updated and moved online, the College of Policing is still assessing the minimum pass mark requirement, though previous in-person assessments required a mark of 50% or greater.
How difficult is the police exam?
The assessment process is designed to be fair and objective, and requires no knowledge of policing law. It’s more a measure of your innate skills and behaviours, so as long as you’ve put in the groundwork, and have what it takes to become a serving officer, you should do well. That said, pressure adds to the difficulty level, so make sure you put in as much practice as possible.
What disqualifies you from becoming a police officer?
Serious criminal offences, like GBH for example, will lead to instant rejection of your application, whilst other convictions, charges and fixed penalties may not. It depends on the nature of these, and the time at which they were issued.
If you fail to declare any convictions, cautions or investigations relating to yourself, a friend or family member on application, you may also be disqualified from the process.
What happens if you fail the police assessment?
Candidates are permitted two attempts at any one part of the assessment process within a 12-month period. However, you must repeat the assessment in full, regardless of your performance in other areas. You must also wait three months between attempts.

Unsure whether a calculator could be used, which would make it much easier.

Maths and science are combined and I don't like it if the question is not clear compared with the given answers.
