You will do the following (Could be in any order, and some things might be missing if your doing a one-dayer) :

- 1.5 mile run (Under 14 mins to pass)

- Jerry can walk/run

- A couple of strength tests on some machines, including heaves.
Just to note, they arent really tests - it's just to get an overall view of you so to speak.

- A military lesson (Will most likely be a grenade lesson) with a test to follow. You will basically have to remember 10 things about the grenade.

- BARB test. (touch screen test thing, nothing to worry about)

- A team task. most likely scenario is you will be split into sections and they will set up a couple of planks and platforms and you have to cross the area as a team. (and not touch the floor beacause it will be either lava, acid or electrified!)

- You may get an introductory PT lesson

- And the last thing i can think of is a very, very simple maths and english test.

All in all, it's pretty easy and nothing to worry about.

hi guys, gettin nervous for saturday..... carnt belive its come round so quickly.... ill let you know who i get on
don't be nervous mate. one word of advice i would give though, is take care not to appear overconfident or cocky at all. I know your nervous etc and so probably don't feel like that but just be careful, i got a talking to from the OC because the NCO's reported that i seemed cocky.

Good luck!
