Thanks for the update.Spoke to my careers officer this morning, waiting on an assessment date and been told the same thing. Assessment weekend being shortened to 1 day, and bleep test rather than 2k run. I asked what level of bleep would be required for Infantry and was told 8.6.
Haven’t done a bleep test since I was in cadets, so I can’t remember if that’s a challenging level, going to have to set one up in the garden and practice.
Don’t imagine I’ll be given a date anytime soon anyway, I didn’t already have one before lockdown as I’d just began my application and have been told they have a large backlog and that those who’d had their dates cancelled, or those waiting for a retest will be prioritised.
Also they’ll be running the assessment days with half the normal capacity.
Apply then start training you’ll have plenty of time mateHi I want to join the army, I’ve seen a few people say the process can take 6-12 months till training, I don’t meet the fitness requirements, I’m very unfit and probably couldn’t run 100m, should I apply now and get fit or should I wait to apply and meet the requirements first?
All tests are the same, just the run is changed for a bleep test. For maths and english get yourself on gcse bitesize, completely free, hope that helpsHi, does anybody have anything further on the tests that are currently in place at the assessment centre? I.e do you do a maths and English test and well as cognitive tests.?
I am looking to join as a RMP reserve however haven’t done any maths since school .... and I am nearly 40! So some time ago ....and is there anything you can do to prepare for them? Thanks in advance
