Hi all. I've recently applied to the RN as a CT and I'm currently waiting on redoing the hearing test in a couple of weeks as I was just under the required standard. At the time the doctor said I met the standard for RAF Int Analyst but who the hell wants to join the crabs? So it got me thinking about the Int Corps. I'd never really thought about joining the Army before, the RN always seemed to appeal more to me, but the more I read about the Int Corps the more I liked the sound of it. I'm popping along to my local ACIO later in the week but thought I'd post on here first. I'm wondering if anyone could give me a heads up the hearing standards, are they higher/lower/the same as the RNs? Obviously if they're the same as the RNs and I fail the hearing test again then there's no point in pursuing it further but if I meet the standards for the Int Corps its going to give me a bit to think about. I understand that the medical takes place down at ADSC so I don't want to start an application and waste everyones time and money if I'm not going to pass it! The main advantage I can see over the RN is that the role covers a wider range of specialisations, whereas as CT is pretty much just dealing with SIGINT, the downside being less variation in deployents ie just Afghanistan. Apologies if my question has been answered or my assumptions proven to be utter crap in the recruiting sticky but its a bloody long thread and I haven't finished reading it yet!
