Hey im coming up for selection in the not too distance future (hopefully), iv been waiting 5weeks for a reply from the bloody army doctors, been on the phone to the careers office every 7days after the first 2 weeks and still no reply from the medical, well anyway - my question being wether anyone knows if you pass selection can you go on a basic at a later date than the most recent, Im set for pirbright if I pass but problem I have is that I cant go any time before August 23rd (Im best man at a wedding) so can I just get the next date after that or will I have to wait to find out etc?
It depends what job you are looking at doing - I've got selection next week, and I know my start date is looking like February! Your ACIO should be able to give you a rough idea when you make your choice!
well i got defered until september. in march i went snowboarding, sorry tried to go snowboarding and broke my right collar bone. the medical intake rules say that you have to wait 6 months after breaking a collar bone before going for selection. now, originally i got told i wasnt going for selection until september because of this, fair enough. but then i got a phone call saying i had been put on selection fot the 24th of july. i got there after a 5 hour train journey and waited 3 hours for my medical, only for them to say i shouldnt have been there until september. so somewhere along the line somebody has cocked up big time. i spoke to the CO an he said he is personally going to investigate the matter. what makes it worse is that i know that i recovered enough to pass the pssr's, but still wasnt allowed so got sent home. and to top things off, ive just been made redundant form my current job
