Well my shooting test is all past no problem now looking forward to starting my new stalking adventure with the FC as a licensed controller on one of this years blocks.
Incidentally the ranger who did my test mentioned that the failure rate was relatively high, about one in seven! I think that no matter what the reasons for not being able to pass a DSC 1 test it doesn't look good for what are seen as amateur stalkers in the eyes of people like the fc and DI. I wonder how many of those who didn't pass practice before hand to remind themselves of the required positions etc? Or simply over confidence or nerves.
