Hey, I'm looking for advice on what the recruiters at the OTC are looking for. Most people will get in but not everyone. And I'm definitely not the fittest person to join. I am not particularly fit, and my upper body strength is absolutely dismal. I have begun an exercise regime and as soon as I'm allowed I'll start using the OTC's gym (I can't really afford the university one...). In my interview I made it clear that I have an aspiration to be an officer in the Artillery and that I'd be fully involved with the OTC. My issue is probably being fully involved. Because of my fitness I will not be particularly good at sports. I will join in as much as I possibly can to improve my fitness and show I am committed to it though. I've already decided that I'll try and get onto some sort of parachuting weekend and other adventure training, hopefully that'll help me overcome my fear of heights and show I'm willing to muck in and improve regardless of my fitness. Is it better to just go at it running or slowly become more involved as my fitness (hopefully) improves? Also, this weekend I have to go away for selection... Has anyone been on one of these? Can they tell me how to go about it? I imagine it's a lot of bleep tests and other physical things... I basically want to put in maximum effort but I don't want to haul myself over the finish line looking like an idiot, out of breath and drenched in sweat. I have turned up for every single event the OTC has put on for new recruits (out of a few hundred I was one of only 80 to do this, so that's got to be a good sign, right?) and I'm pretty sure I've given a good impression to the second and third years (they wet themselves with laughter at some of my antics on one of their organised chaos events). Cheers. P.S. If there's a thread that covers all this please direct me to it... I had a look but none of them really give all the information I'd like to know, and a lot of it's out of date given the changes the OTC has gone through.
