Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sorry if this has been asked but has anyone else of this have selection at Pirbright on said date?
     
  2. Think i might be mate as i had my interview monday he said he was putting me for selection straight away and should be going adsc within 2-3 weeks waiting for a letter to confirm will let you know buddy.
     
  3. Im there on July 7th mate. End of a VERY long wait!

  4. how long you been waiting mate and did they explain y it took that long?
     
  5. I started my application in February 2007 and start basic in July 2008.

    There are a number of reasons for this though. The first is that I was reffered for 3 months as I had just finished physio for torn ankle ligaments after coming off my motocross bike (not a good start). They put me on a 3 month training plan and I returned 3 months later. After this my application progressed and I went for selection in July 2007. Passed without any hitches but was told I faced quite a lengthy wait due to my job choice (REME Air Tech). Didnt get my date untill Feb 2008 and start July 2008.

    All I would say is keep regular contact with your recruiting office. Also the time really does fly by, I have waited for 18 months and it has come around so quickly.

    What is your job choice?
