You get assigned a CSM after completing your BARB test. Then he/she will arrange your first formal interview for you.
How long ago did you complete your BARB? If it was over 2wks ago, i would ring the recruitment response team and ask to be allocated your CSM and ask for his/her number to contact them.

Yeah that's I will do, a few days of waiting won't do any harm.

Infantry mate, what about you ? What stage are you at ?
Patience is a virtue with Capita mate ;) ha
& Spot on mate, well I've got Infantry as my number one, RA special gunfire observer for number 2 & 3rd driver.
& i only completed my medical last thursday fella.
What reg/battalion you hoping to join?

Yip!! Your no kidding there anyway! Lol waited about 6weeks before I got my medical.

Wanting to join 2scots or 5scots, the royal regiment of Scotland.

I take we are roughly at the same stage in the application process ?

Ha i waited 8 1/2 weeks for ny medical mate.

& fair enough bud, im looking at Rifles, there my most local recruiting infantry reg.
But yes mate pretty much, your a bit ahead of me with the barb tho because i haven't done it yet. Waiting for that one to come through.

Yeah I was torn between the rifles an scots but decided on the scots as that is my local regiment.

Yeah you should get your barb test soon, was only a few days after my medical... Was totally surprised when I seem the email for it! Then you will get a job preference questionnaire. Now I am on the dreaded wait to be appointed to a CSM

Cheers fella.

& dont worry about it mate, mine is around the same time at the moment, so your not on your own!
Just takes a bit of hard work and dedocation and you'll have it down to 10mins in no time.
Im working on a 5k training programme at the moment, its quite good.
My strength is fine, i can do over the required press ups, sit ups etc..
Just got to smash this run time.
 
#13
Yeah I know what you mean, I will hit that 10min mark!!

I think in the adsc they don't do press up an sit ups as part of the test now. Just Jerry can walk, power bag lift
 
#17
Ah I see I read your post wrong there, thought you said you had interview. Yeah am waiting as well, think I will give them a call again on Monday if I don't hear anything.

What you planning on joining as ?
