  1. Hi.

    I've been thinking about joining the RA and have finally decided to apply for 19 regt
    being a jock i have my heart set on serving with a scotish regiment! What i was wondering is how long i can expect to wait between selection and phase one. If anyone can give me a rough idea i'd appreciate it! Cheers
  2. That depends on how much effort you put into selection!

    A grades are allocated onto the next available intake.
    B grade are allocated 6 months before the start date
    C grades= 3 months
    D grade= try again! They will leave you waiting until 6 weeks before the intake date. (thereby allowing those with better grades to get the jobs)

    So the question is, when are the next RA intakes?

    Answer: October 50 odd places, November 73 places!!

    So if u passed selection today with a B grade, you'll get allocated very soon!
    Pass with a C grade, u will wait till mid/end of July to get the October intake and if that's full u will wait till august to get allocated for November!
    Remember, those vacancies are being taken every time someone passed with a B grade at the moment, as it's within 6 months!

    To top it off, you're joining the Gunners, not 19regt. Once your in training you'll do a posting preference, there you'll request 19regt and hopefully get it, 95% you will, but ultimately...your joining the Army and will go where your told.
  3. Thats brilliant thanks for the information.
  4. 40 Regt is also a jock regiment primarily recruiting from the lowlands of Scotland including Edinburgh and Glasgow,
