PM me - this is too long to waitE5_Man said:Not too sure where this goes on the forum but I guess as im hoping to join Infantry it's here.
I have my Barb test booked for mid april, which was the nearest time available, but after that what is next and how long would that take?
good luckAFCO Career Advice said:The application process takes 3 - 6 months to complete. To apply for soldier entry you start with an initial visit to the Army Careers Office. You will have a general chat with the recruiter, watch a few videos on potential career options and will be asked a few simple questions about yourself. If you like what you hear they will book a BARB test (Entrance Test), a Basic Skills Assessment (literacy & Numeracy). This is followed by a number of interviews and a 36 hour visit to the Army Development & Selection Centre (ADSC). At the ADSC you will have a full medical, fitness test and a final interview. If this all goes well you will be offered a place in the Army. Approximately 2 - 4 weeks after ADSC you will be enlisted into the Army and then report for basic training.
The BARB (Entrance) Test is done on a touch screen computer. It is simple maths, english and common sense questions. At a later stage of selection or in basic training you will take a Basic Skills Assessment (Literacy & Numeracy). One will measure your level of literacy (that is your reading, comprehension, spelling and punctuation). The other will find out your numeracy ability (that is, working with numbers and doing arithmetic calculations)
