All you can do is wait unfortunately.Had this at selection and as my grandparents were Indian (making me 1/4 Indian or 2nd generation). Could do everything but the run. I understand the caution and it is what it is. I’m just a bit confused why, when ethnicity/origin is given on the application, candidates are not informed. This has resulted in me losing 3 days pay. Others may be in worse situations. I accept the situation with annoyance but will just have to wait, I guess. In the meantime I’m going to take the positive that I can work more on my run time & beast it, when I eventually do come to do it
Every candidate currently going through the process who has foreign heritage is currently being deferred, pending a blood test.
Pirbright are running blood tests & runs every couple of weeks, but frankly the current process is a shambles.
Lots of people are waiting.
Nobody (even with Army recruiting) knows whats going on or how long candidates are going to have to wait.
Its frankly a mess and RG are making it up as they go along.
On a positive note, the rules are there to protect candidates, and RG have been forced onto taking this drastic action by external legal processes.
