Attention anyone who has applied online...

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. Get down your local recruitment office and have a word. They should be able to give you a BARB date there and then following a short interview/chat.

    This is what I did, I got told that the online process had a 2 month back-log!!

    So I popped into my local office and they got me up on the system. Got my BARB on the 31st of this month.

    God knows when it would have been if I had waited for them to contact me!

  2. The online app is only an indication of interest, it's basically just an easy way of getting an info pack and a phone call asking if you are still interested a couple of months later.
  3. I have my BARB on the 31st Aug as well! Best of luck to you!
  4. Thankyou very much and good luck to you also!

    What are you hoping to apply for?

  5. Combat Medic is my first choice. 2nd and 3rd are Int Corp and Ammo Tech. I'd be pretty happy with either 3 of I'm honest!

    Keep me posted on how your BARB goes!

    Have you been practicing with those online psychometric tests?
  6. Nice choices! Im hoping for Infantry, Infantry then Infantry! haha.

    Ive got a great book that im using every day (succeed at psychometrice testing: practice tests for the armoed forces entry level) and ive been doing the practice BARB on their website.

    I will defo keep you posted! make sure you do the same!
