Your presumption about a common syllabus is wrong...Out of curiosity, why don’t the SBS (R) offer a DCE for candidates?
Presumably the selection process for UKSF(R) is a common syllabus that 21/23 conduct with absolutely no issue with DCE candidates.
What does a young man with 18 months RMR service, who has hit no more than the minimum annual commitment have that a motivated candidate for 21/23 hasn’t?
yes.I don’t think it is.
Are you suggesting SBS (R) complete regular selection as reservists? Nonsense Alfred.
Bits of it, yes.Are you suggesting SBS (R) complete regular selection as reservists?
Read what he said again. He's talking about the regular units, not SBS(R). Only one of the regular units has previously accepted tri-service reservists., it isn’t as of yesterday. SBS (R) have been accepting tri service applications for quite a number of years. You have zero gen.
He's correct. You are not.You have zero gen.
Sorry fella, Alfred and Caecilius are both correct from what I can see. Not seen a DIN, but it makes sense.
They might be running it like Samson where selection is on RSDs then if successful FTRS(FC) contract. It'll probably be in the DIN.Sorry fella, Alfred and Caecilius are both correct from what I can see. Not seen a DIN, but it makes sense.
Also in case any aspiring knife fighters can read this through the black nasty: reservists definitely don't need to be FTRS to apply. I mean think about it: given that 90% of FTRS roles are occupied by overweight 50-something LEs, and seem to be given as life appointments, that would be a spectacularly self-defeating rule. Unless the plan is to suffocate or bore HM's enemies to death. The manning training margin is designed for cases like this.
