Hi mate, just going off what ive read im at Glencorse on 15th December how did you fair? Was the TST hard n where was it you ran specifically?
I came out with a B, ballsed up the team tasks by taking leaderless too literally which dropped me from an A apparently.

TST was basic GCSE, go through bitesize and you’ll be fine. Not the best to ask though as I’ve done degree level chemistry. I got 48/55 on it and I’m guessing the 7 I missed were stupid mistakes not reading the questions correctly due to time.

You run down a public footpath, .75 miles to a wooden gate and back. If you can’t do that it’s around the parade square which I didn’t do. There is a 1/2 mile jog down to the stat point at a tunnel though.
 
Great thread thanks for the tips. I've got Glencorse AC on 16th Feb. Already in time with the running but going to keep working at it to get the time down.

Your 1st week will be a shock to the system possibly lol it was for me. But they tell you here it’s ‘a game’ and to play it . I’ll keep this thread informed with some of the things I’m upto . Good luck pal
 
I had an operation on both my feet back in 2015. Will I have to mention this in my medical? And if so will it get me deferred? Because I know capita enjoy taking their time with referrals. Due to go to ADSC Glencourse in January

I imagine they'll notice an operation on your feet if there are noticeable scars plus they have your records and so it's highly likely they'll quiz you. I certainly wouldn't out and out lie about it as that'll get you more than just a deferral.

Then again if they don't ask don't feel compelled to volunteer the information.

Thanks for the speedy reply, would it be worth me getting a letter from my surgeon clearing me and bringing it to ADSC?

Obviously caveats of I'm not an expert on this nor am I medical but I wouldn't bother at this stage as your surgeon will likely only be able to offer general advice. If you are deferred they will have to give you specific JSP 950 reasons for it and then you can appeal against those using your surgeon's medical expertise.
