I took the PARE test 3 times before I took the official one. On my first practice test I failed miserably, and I didn’t know exactly what to do to make sure I didn’t fail my test with RCMP. After my test you gave me an honest feedback which helped me see where I was at per my physical ability to pass the test. Your feedback helped me change my workouts and work harder so I didn’t end up failing the PARE. I passed the PARE and I shaved off 1min 4 sec from my first practice test, in 5 weeks. I would not have been able to do this without your feedback, tips and advice. If you are serious about passing your test please do yourself a favour and take the practice test with LEPAT before you go for your official test. I highly recommend it! Thanks a lot!
