My advice to all those attending selection is to get fit, get fully involved in all activities, give it your absolute best shot, do not hold back. Lastly and most importantly do not beocme cocky or have an attitude.
On my RSW we were given a few topics to talk about. Why you wanted to join, bit about your civvy life, best moment in your life (be original and don't say getting married or the birth of your child!). Don't worry, most will be as nervous as you. Once you're into your TA career nerves will be a thing of the past!
You will be expected to stand infront of the rest of the RSW and speak for roughly 4-5 mins about yourself, on my RSW we spoke and then the rest of the RSW got to ask a question about yourself based on what you had said initially. Some tips: relax and enjoy it, they are looking to see if you are confident, when you are speaking i personally find it easier to look at different people every so often, try not to speak too fast and try not to look at the floor! Remember that everyone has to do it, so if you suffer from a lack of confidence, maybe let others go first, or sit in the middle incase your sgt starts from the left or the right of the group! That way you can see others will be as nervous as you are
As everyone has said, enjoy it, its the first step into a life you will not regret
I know exactly what you have to talk about on my selection weekends. If you are attending 145Bde recruit selections at ADSC Pirbright when I book you in I will give yu a questionaire to fill out while you are waiting for the cadre to turn up. This questionaire mirrors the questions on the icebreaker and gets your mind into gear before hand.
Unless you are the first person to speak on the icebreaker do not worry. I do not pick people who state they are nervous to go first.
The icebreaker is, for me, an invaluable tool to see what makes a potential recruit 'tick'.
