That’s where I’ll be going what are the beds/showers etc like?
The rooms are a dorm with like 15 bunk beds but every other bed is taped of not for use and only one person per bed so i only had 1 other person near me and they didnt give us time to use showers. When we got woken up at 6 they gave us till 630 to get ready, strip the beds and be outside. But they are in the toilets and are there if you want to use them

I'm female and done it all - This is true they do ask you to take your bra off doesn't matter on the bra, it's not awkward at all, just lay there have a chat, and it's a lady who does it
if you’re a bit shy they give you a bit of paper towel to cover yourself and if you’re not body confident girls who I did selection with wore a bikini in the shower (I didn’t know and just showered after everyone else was done)

Its not difficult, bar the run ( if your unfit ), medical can be a bore as usually theres 30 to do, assuming there only 10-15 people its more than do-able in one day.

Done the ac on saturday, the bleep test is really easy, in between each level, say 1 and 2 you get two chances to not reach the line before the bleep but when it gets to level 3 it resets to 2 chances again. Same for each level

My son passed his assessment last Tuesday/Wednesday.... grade B. Had a conditional pass on medical tho, stating they need to speak to a senior member regarding his adhd?... was told someone would ring to confirm? He’s not in meds and hasn’t been for 8 years...it’s just something he’s learnt to control and live with. Any idea how long they take? Is there a number he can call to chase? Pirbright reception not answering and his csm has just said he’s got to wait?
