I can't really give everyone a penny! Its been a while since I went away from my AOSB-Briefing with good news but I'm finally looking at my main board which is the April 19th - 22nd one. Firstly, the AOSB booking bods told me that my main board date is the last one with which a successful candidate can go through to get into the MAY 2010 intake. Now I really would prefer May over September, is there any reason to think this is unrealistic? Secondly, there's the pros & cons of May vs September to think about. If I pass that is! I've heard the May intake tends to be older & a bit smaller which I'd like as I'm now 25yrs 4 mths old & will be leaving civvie street from full time employment as opposed to straight from uni. So, I am a little wary about the September date containing far more fresh grads. It boils down to the following; MAY - I have to quit work without fulfilling 4 weeks notice, but I get into training sooner & in theory have more in common with fellow recruits... SEPT - I get to resign properly from work, go on a few holidays with my better half, but I start that bit closer to my 26th birthday & go into a rather large intake... Any thoughts welcome.
