C3S Questions

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. Right... I went down AFCO last week as I have pre selection on Weds and ADSC on Monday. On the booklet I was given it says Phase 1 - 14 weeks. Then Phase 2 in Minley 10 weeks.

    When I spoke to the recruiter he said about phase 2a and phase 2b which made me slightly worried as I never heard about this until then and worrying about the interviews in ADSC now, I'm doing my research online and can see

    Just wondering how long phase 2b will be for C3S, any help is much appreciated as I don't want to look like a fool which hasn't done his revision in ADSC.

    thanks.
     
  2. I had my selection last month, and they didn't really ask me any questions about training or what not, they just give you a brief formal interview at the end telling you how you did, I too chose royal engineers to do command, communications and informations systems specialist, which only lasts 10 weeks, as for c3s have you tried google? Or maybe give your recruiting officer a ring they'll always know the answer, better than getting there and not knowing your stuff. Hope this helps :)
     
  3. I thought communications and informations systems specialist was a C3S? How'd it go mate you pass? They're the ones driving us down to pre-selection on weds so I'll double check with him. Thanks for reply.
     
  4. I think it is my bad, I've heard so many abbreviations I forget what it is to be honest. Yeah got an A thanks mate, don't get babied like you do at your pap and pre selection, on your pre selection it's the exact same as your pap to be honest. No worries hope it was some help, and good luck.
