2 days at pirbright and i have to do it all again

#1
Just got back from my 2 days selection at pirbright and although no failings i have been deffered as my weight needs to be higher to get into royal artillary.

Its a bummer but its just a set back and will just make me more determined.

good food and lots of training and i will be back!!!!!!

if anyone has any advice on this, drop me a message.

My son was underweight a month or so before he went to selection so I bolstered him up a bit with lots of pasta, potatoes and guinness. At least after your deferrment you know what to expect, if you completed your final interview and only failed on weight for RA why didnt you ask to do your second or third preference instead :?

they said i could go in as planned but only into inantry and i really want to o into artillary so i will keep plodding on
Ok good on you Stick to your GUNS and go Artillary (pardon the pun), i had a similar case to yours and once he was over the said weight (BMI) I got him back after four weeks by phoning the PSO and getting him to lift the deferral before the 3 months on the system. Once your well over speak to your recruiter and he might do this as lond as the PSO's interview notes reflect it was for this reason.

Woah, do you mind if I ask how much you weighed? I didn't realise weight was actually a problem, well not underweight at least...
Being underweight is just has bad as being overweight as can cause serious injury/health problems when carrying weight.

That's a big increase. Are you sure about those figures? You'll do well to put on 30kilos of muscle in three months. I'd clarify the numbers (which are based on your BMI).

Does that mean if you are over three months from your deferral then you have to start the process again? (BARB etc.)?

Once the deferral period is up your Recruiter will get you in a confirm everything is in order and deferral reason is sorted, he will then conduct a change of circumstances interview. The Recruiter will speak direct to ADSC and you will go back down but more than likely do the full wo days again(dependant o wat the PSO says regarding why you were deferred). Your Recruiter will be give you more of an idea as he can see all your interviews so far and PSO's reasons.
