Medical Failed

#1
Hi all, I was told 2 weeks ago that i had passed my medical and my final interview on the 5th October. Today i called my recruiter up to ask him a couple of questions and he tells me he mad a mistake and that i didnt pass my medical. What a kick in the teeth!. Does this kind of thing happen alot?

Hi all, i got my letter a week ago. It said i was deferred because of deliberate self harm and that i couldnt automaticallty appeal or something. It happend 2 years ago and i had forgotton about it. I was thinking about going to a psychiatrist just to prove that i'm ok. Can someone tell me where i can go from here.

Cheers!

Hi, it didnt say. All it said was that i didnt have an automatic right to appeal, so i think i'm not ever allowed to join the army.

It seems like its a mission just to get pass the application stage. I just hope i get in because it would be a damn shame if i didnt.

nice article, im sur if its supposed to be pro or against te afghan war but what the hell.

anyways, im ginda interested in your situation because i have been to the doctors before for self harm, and although a that point is was only very mild he is still going to write down personal problems on my questionnaire.

I seriously dont want to get rejected as the only thing i am good at is handling myself in stressful and dangerous situations, and there arent many other jobs where that comes up . . .

i just got a call from the recruiter today saying it was all fine and i have my interveiw next friday. hopefully this means they didnt have a problem with my medical history. I suppose it all depends on what wording the doctor used.

I'm curious, when did you find out you were good at it?
