Hi sneaky teen, my son got accepted for AFC(H) this time last year. Apart from doing his addtional education test he had no contact from the AFCO (aldershot) until he went for his education certificate check and his swearing in. in late August. He could have done a look and see course but he decided against it.

In hindsight I think he could of done with some input from them as he really got cold feet as we got closer to the time to go. He hated the first week at AFC(h) it was such a shock, but now 6 months in he loves it. He is so inspired cant wait to get to Phase 2.

Good luck on your prep. Keep running and injury free

No they don't really care too much. Work on fitness and get a job like Sentinel said
