RAF Regiment advice

#1
Hi.

I have my aptitude test for the RAF Regiment on Thursday, I've been doing the practice test and it seems to be very easy. I was just wondering how many questions I have to get right on the actual test and how similar it is to the practice test?

Also, I was wondering what the best way to prepare myself physically is, I try and get to the gym most days before and after work and do a lot on the treadmill and a lot of body weight training (maybe go on the sunbeds for a bit!) Is there a particulat program that would help me with the PGSC?

When I was 16, I passed selection for the Marines but due to personal reasons I withdrew at the last minute and I just fancies something different. A lot of my family are serving soldiers, army mostly and they advised me to go RAF Reg as they say it's a better standard of living.

How will RAF Reg selection differ/compare to that I did for the Royal Marines?

Thanks guys. Any rely will be appreciated.

ref the test, I never did the practice test, but saw it afterwards and I thought the real test was a fair bit harder. During the test it feels impossible, but it's not that bad actually.
When I did the test (applicants for all branches of the RAF were there), out of 10 of us, 5 passed.

ISTR that the Maths section required the lowest score to pass for regt.
But I'm abandoning thread before it gets too bad
This mean that I'm going to get ripped into for wanting to join the RAF Reg? An well, nevermind. I'm sure for every few insults there will be a bit of advice ha.

Try asking in here somewhere; E-Goat :: The Totally Unofficial Royal Air Force Rumour Network forums - E-Goat Home . I hope your prepared it will be a minimum of twice as hard as any entry tests you have done before! :clown:

Best post your findings after you have been through, in case the hordes of other people looking for advice on joining the RAF think of looking on an army type website.


If its not a wah, I'll eat my hat.
Cheers mate.

I posted here as it seems to be the most well established services forum. I wanted advice off genuine service men. I thought that the other forums might all have their own and not neccasirily the correct advice to give me. sorry to offend if I have

Hi all.

Im thinking about joining the RAF Regt and so I thought the best place to ask about it would be the Army Rumour Service.

I thought I would make a reference to the Royal Marines at the same time just so you know I am serious.

In fact I'm so serious that I got though months at Lympstone and binned it for mysterious reasons,but am now worries about some noddy "practical test" at Honington.


Thanks for all the sensible replies and I promise I'm not a bored ARRSE member out for a mega obvious bite.

Love

Mentioned the marines to draw comparison between the tests.

I withdrew because I was the only one in my family able to look after my Gran and my Mum was in hospital with a serious health complication. At the same time my bipolar missus was shaggin about in uni an I wasn't mentally right for the vigours of CTCRM. Not that I should have to post about that here.

I posted the question here cos funnily enough despite the banter you all seem to know what you're talking about. And mates/family from the forces said it's a good forum.

That OK?
