I doubt they would recommend you for another role. They will just confirm that you're well qualified fitness wise for your first choice role. I'm sure they will be impressed though. I was going for a role that required 8.7 and got 11.6 and it was just a pat on the back type thing.If I can get 11.6 on the bleep test at AC, will I get recommended for Paras? Although I'm just looking at line infantry I know I only need 8.7. Ive been practicing bleep test and I'm regularly getting above level 12.
I’m worried about my medical tbhHad my ac on Monday, I'd been rejected last year as P8 medically unfit "heart valve condition" which I appealed as I should be graded P2.
Had my final consult with doctors on the day and agreed that I'm P2 and said it was good I appealed as it's a tiny thing that most people have and is no concern.
Medical took 4 hours in total so couldn't do bleep test, got that booked next wednesday. got an 89 on cog and 36 on tst (needed 58 and 30 I think?) and only need a 6.6 on bleep test and comfortably getting over 7 but gonna push for 8 on the day
Obviously can't speak in your case as it's very different to mine and I don't know whether I was just lucky that my thing isn't serious in the slightest and was just made out to be by whoever rejected me the first time round.I’m worried about my medical tbh
I got p8 because of childhood epilepsy, when I quoted the jsp to them my appeal was upheld. They then asked for further medical evidence due to me snapping my leg back in 2016 I sent off all the consultants notes the doctors would give me and again I was allowed to continue. Booked in for March 9th but worried the doctor on the day may have something to say !
one hurdle after another but I’m sure it will be worth it in the end.
if You don't get the score on the bleep test you can redo it at a later date or Choose a role that is base on the score You get on your bleep test.Right so I’ve got my AC on the 25th and I’m going for infantry, if I don’t score high enough on the beep test will they tell me to choose something else or give me another shot at the AC for a later date?
Cheers, infantry is the only role that appeals to me and I can see myself doing, when I applied I was a lifter and had no experience running whatsoever so I’ve gone from struggling to run 2k at an 8 minute K pace to a 28:30 5K since November so just stressing it a bitif You don't get the score on the bleep test you can redo it at a later date or Choose a role that is base on the score You get on your bleep test.

did you wear suit for the interview ?.Attended assessment centre today. A brief overview for those who are interested.
-on base for 6:45 and taken into briefing. They explained how to address staff and the format of the day, COVID measures etc.
-confirmed everyone's Maths and English GCSE's to see what tests people needed to take
-moved into computer room for ACT
-after ACT people completed relevant tests depending on roles and qualifications. I had to complete the Technical Selection test as I'm going for a technical role. Essentially GCSE maths(if not lower), mutliple choice and marked out of 55, a score of 30 opens all roles to you
-moved into waiting room and provided lunch bags, plenty of stuff in them for the whole day, I chose to stay away from heavy stuff till after physical
-taken to do BMI, sight/hearing tests and ECG
-taken to other room to do more in depth medical discussion, movement tests and blood pressure etc.
-after more time in waiting room we did physical tests, med ball and mid-thigh pull (both easy) and then MSFT outside in the car park
-after that we were allowed to shower and when ready were taken for a small end interview to discuss you scores and job choices and you get a certificate to say you passed the assessment centre
Any more questions let me know. They were very well organised due to COVID and we were well taken care of, still treated like civvies and everything was very pleasant.
