Anyone going Pirbright in August 20 ?
Yeah I’ve got my assessment on the same date ladAny one got there Assesment day at pirbright on the 22nd of August.
At the end of the interview do you get a list of roles you can join as? Or Is it simple pass or fail for what you want to join as1. Lung capacity test is conducted in the spirometry section. You blow 3 times as powerful and as prolonged as you can through a tube which is measured via the software they use and is compared to what an average human of your gender/age/weight should be blowing.
You wait around for 5-10 minutes then get put onto a bike, your nose gets pegged and you have a diving respirator on. You cycle for a few minutes at an easy resistance while maintaining 60-65 rpm. Then the diving gas is switched on and the resistance is increased. (Bear in mind this is designed to wear you out, and is not a measure of how strong your quads are so you can ask them to turn down the resistance if necessary.)
You cycle for 10minutes at a constant rate.
Immediately after you blow into the tube again another 3 times, wait 10 minutes and blow another 3 times.
The blows on ALL attempts have to be within a 10% threshold of your original blows.
If you don't pass this, you will be deferred not barred - timings can vary depending on results.
2. Interview. You could be waiting a while for this as there are a lot of candidates to go through... We watched Saving Private Ryan in the time it took for our turn.
Anyway, the interview is simple.
They will go over your fitness test results, aptitude test results and the technical selection test results and will advise on what roles are applicable.
They ask you straight forward questions. Make sure you know the following:
If you passed, you will receive a certificate and a goody bag.
- A reason why you want to join the army;
- What regiment you want to join/hope of joining;
- Your chosen regiment's current deployments;
- Knowledge of your phase 1 and phase 2 training;
- Values and standards of the army (C-DRILS etc)
3. I don't have an awful lot of knowledge regarding this as I have only just been to my selection weekend end of Feb and my training dates are in November for phase 1. Hopefully someone else can help.
You find out your results for your ACT, TST (if you attempted it) and feedback from the command task.At the end of the interview do you get a list of roles you can join as? Or Is it simple pass or fail for what you want to join as
Do you have to choose the job role there and then or can you talk to your recruiter about then choose?You find out your results for your ACT, TST (if you attempted it) and feedback from the command task.
He/she gives you an overall grade.
Others received a list of the roles that they were applicable for, so yes.
If you ace everything then you just get told you can do whatever you like, so they don't bother with the list.
They will write you a reference based on your assessment centre performance which will go on your file and will make the training team aware of your performance to date.
You put down your preferences on the day you arrive at the AC on a form, these carry forward to the interview and they essentially assume that's what you want to do and will therefore ask what you know about your chosen job role/corps etc etc in the interview.Do you have to choose the job role there and then or can you talk to your recruiter about then choose?
