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. Im going to start by being completely honest and say i was first applying to join the royal marines but failed my PRMC on the endurance course run and have decided to rethink and reconsider and instead apply to join the rifles.

    Asking a lot but can someone explain the application process for the rifles in full for me? I cant seem to find much information on my phone and cant go to my AFCO until 7th jan so its a little frustrating!

    fitness stats:
    1.5 mile in 12.30mins, 1 min rest, return 1.5 miles in 8.55mins
    Level 12 bleep test
    50 elbow in push ups in 2 mins
    64 sit ups in 2 mins, knees together and hands on temples all the way down and elbows up past my knees
    8 wide grip pull ups

    all and any help extremely appreciated
  2. What DD said, it'll show determination and an ability to correct shortcomings. Did RM not offer you the option of re-applying in X months' time? Seems odd, if so.
