Told me I pass my medical and was ok to proceed to assesment centre, and are now saying that I need f2f medical before I go, am quite confused applied just before the lockdown. They Cancelled it yesterday but the day before I was told my date.
You must need to see a specialist or something then.. literally the first time I've heard anything like this.

Didn't say anything about a specialist I'll find more out from my recruitment officer when he's back. They did say I need a ECG and spirometry test am a ex smoker if that's why.
 
Guys I'm a rejoin waiting for only a medical I don't have to do training again as I passed out in 2015 I'm set to go straight into Mercians but I have been told that are only sorting rejoins out once that have got the new recruits through first find that mad seeing as I don't need to do training doesn't make sense I could be back in within a month of assesment if I manage to get there that keep chatting about medical not being on or no dates yet is there eny one who is rejoining who comes from battalion who has the same problems fast track my a***

I'm in a similar boat, applied in June as a rejoiner and was told 4 months. Fair enough but it's annoying when the NRC don't reply to candidate portal questions and promises of contacting the CSM turn to nothing. Is it any wonder the Army is annually 7000 under strength? I just hit the great wall of silence every time.

I appreciate COVID19 has slowed things down but it's the lack of communication from the NRC that disheartens applicants. And I'm only trying to get back in the AGC!
 
My csm is the same just keeps saying no change at this time but I spoke to someone at the NRC and thay basically told me there getting the backlog of new recruits through before they consentrate on rejoiners

Just back from assessment centre Glencorse. Any questions feel free to ask.
You might have been on my intake. Was there a muppet who didn't know his left from right?

Advice to those going to Glencorse. If they offer you second breakfast, take it. You'll be sat in medical for a while and running on an empty stomach isn't fun.

How many people did you have on AC & The litracy & numeracy Test is it Level 1 or 2 you need if i have certificates i have
Basic Skills-Intial Assessment -Literacy: level 2
Basic Skills-Intial Assessment -Numeracy Level 1
You'll have to put all your qualifications in a big blue folder and they'll take it away.
You need the equivalent of an A-C in maths and English - so level 2.

Do you get an opportunity to warm up and do some stretches before the Bleep test

We didn't do a warm up. You'll get a couple of minutes to do a basic stretch whilst they run over the rules.
At Glencorse it was conducted in the car park and it had just started spitting so was extremely slippery!

I wouldn’t have been with you then mate after all because it was sunshine when we did it!
