You can re-sit the BARB test after 28 days of your previous test and take it up to 3 times in a year. Remember though that if you got a lower score on your re-sit your previous score doesnt stand anymore. You need at least 26 on the BARB for all infantry type jobs and under 9.40 for the run if wanting Para.

If you live in the Isle of shite, you have a good stomping ground for hill training that will stand you in good stead for Para Regt. Need alot more running as well fella.

12:20 at 19!!!!

whilst the min is 09:40, you should be aiming for around 9:00. i wouldn't bother with a gym, yuo can crack army style PT in your bedroom / own back yard, eg. press-ups, sit-ups, squats etc..

Heed the_iron's advice, he's in the know about these things.

i'd get running, don't worry about BARB, it is very easy, if you have GCSE english, maths & science you'll breeze it.
