you can put down a battalion you want to join but the armies needs come first.thats what i was told anyway.if you go to to adsc soon youll have to wait till after august for a basic date.also at selection make sure you get involved alot in the team tasks and voice your opinions.while i was at adsc few people failed on the team tasks,it doesnt matter how well you have done on everything else on selection,if you fail the team tasks you get deffered.
so if im going to selection on 3rd of june and pass, what date would i be looking at starting? or don't you have any set dates mate
Recruiter said providing I pass selection on Tuesday I will bee looking at August/September for a start date. Happy Days!!
Fair play mate!! you must have really impressed your recruiter!!! tell me.... whats your secret??
Good luck mate and do yourself, your family and your country proud!!
I just read up as much as I could about The Rifles so when he asked I knew the battalions, where they were and what they did. I came across very confident and enthusiastic and made it clear that I want a career out of the Army and I'm not one of the hoards of people who are only applying for the army because they can't get a job due to the recession. Plus my fitness is upto scratch so there were no concerns about sending me for selection. Also a warrant officer came into the interview half way through and asked me a few questions and he said he was impressed so I must be doing something right :D :D
