I'm well aware of the contempt some users feel about the officers forum being used to ask questions about officer selection, however I need some advice. I have observed the board s for months and can't find the help I need. I appreciate the value of the forum and have contributed what I can currently afford to help maintain it. I hope therefore that members will read this post and answer what I believe is quite a difficult question. I've sat the RCB once and was told to try again in 12 months (12 months ago). My failure was because of the psychometric assessment. I believe my EQ is low because both my parents have psychological problems. The cause of this seems to be their time serving. (Royal Signals 77-86 and Royal Military Police 78 -81). What happens if I get professional psychological help too? The RCB medical was pretty horrific, and applicants seemed to fail for the most ridiculous reasons. Iâm quite concerned about the following; A: The army will fail me on medical grounds for having received professional help, B: Iâll be discharged from Sandhurst if anyone finds out, C: A soldiers perception of an officer whoâs had professional help will prove to be a problem after Sandhurst. If anyone has any personal experience they can share about this please PM me. I know the easy solution is to keep it a secret but these things have a habit of being found out.
