Barb test

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by laurencarter, Oct 6, 2008.

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. Does anybody know what score you need to get to become a combat medic in the TA on your barb test? i have got selection on Saturday.

    Also apart from the run on selection what else can i expect?
     
  2. The ACIO guys/gals will know everything you could possibly want to know :)
     
  3. Can't answer the BARB question.

    Selection will consist of PFT, jerry can walk, heaves, command tasks, a couple of strength tests and that's about it.
     
  4. And, what he said.
     
  5. will you be at Pirbright by any chance?
     
  6. No its near southport so i am told

    There's a page on Arrsepedia here: TA Recruit Selection which seems to be written with ADSC Glencourse in mind, but is equally applicable to all other ADSCs.
     
  8. I would not worry about it, especially as you will not be told your score if you go to ADSC (P). They will be forwarded to your unit.

    It is immaterial what the standards are, you get what you get. So just settle down relax and do your best.
     
  9. If you are going to ADSC (P) then look on this link, scroll down until you see my reply and it will be exactly what you cover there.

    The unit you are joining should be able to advise you of the content of a selectction.
