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!

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?

Last time it happened. You know, when he "self harmed" himself!
