Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. absolutely bricking it and I don't know why.
    I've heard a shit load of rumours and been told what I believe to be a load of bollocks from my recruitment office.

    This selection and being accepted onto my phase 1 means the absolute world to me, and I can NOT fail.

    I've been told that a lot of lads get denied because of the run times on selection, and that they're absolutely brutally critical about everything.

    I'm currently doing 55-60 pushups in a minute or just over.
    About 50 sit-ups in a minute or just over.
    I run my mile and a half in about 10:30
    My upper body strength has always been my strong point, and I reckon I'll piss all over the jerry can test.

    I've watched a load of vids, documentaries and read all sorts on selection, but I want the truth.

    What are the chances of not being offered a spot in P1 training?
    Does it really matter what I say in the icebreaker? I figured it would be mostly to judge my confidence.
    Is it a good idea to show up for my selection in a suit?
    What kind of questions do they ask in the interview?

    Cheers in advance for any replies.
