Phase 1exams were important, because if someone was found too intellectually wanting it was early enough in the process to cull them and send them on their way. Training a cadet is expensive (even though I felt the shipping company more than recouped its pound of flesh) and after two and a half years of a three-and-a-half-year training period, it was unlikely that someone would be sent down for a poor Phase 3 result. The real test came, of course, at the end of Phase 4 and the subsequent return to college, after which we actually sat the Board of Trade exams: that was the real thing. Armed with this knowledge that Phase 3 exams were important – but not that important – we each took a view as to how well we needed to cope to avoid utter disgrace with whichever shipping company we were contracted to. There was a danger that Phase 4 at sea could be made a particularly unpleasant experience if the shipping company detected that someone was just along for the ride.
