Do you get told your time straight after the run or do you have to wait till the final interview?Pay attention to instructions well, be friendly with everyone - I struggled with this to begin with because I was one of the oldest girls there, I'm 23 and most the of them were 16/17/18 and from England, where as I am Scottish so they struggled to understand me, but none the less I put myself out there and spoke to whoever I ended up sitting beside, especially put yourself out there when doing the team tasks.
Prepare for the fitness side of things as much as possible (mainly the run!) I got 9min 48 secs but a lot of girls got deferred at the end of the assessment to come back and redo the run because they didn't complete it in time. The ball throw and mid thigh pull up are fairly easy as long as your fit.
Make up is allowed I wore make up everyday but just a bit powder, Vaseline and mascara!
If you have anymore questions feel free to message me directly!
Hello,So I submitted my application back in August for review. My last task was to submit my passport scans on the portal. Waited approximately 6 weeks for a response before I was told by the Legion here in my country (they're helping all applicants which is very much appreciated) to call the recruitment office.
I called and spoke with a lady who was speaking so fast I could barely get a word in. I was told that all Commonwealth applications have been put on hold until Jan/Feb 2020. I'm a bit gutted tbh and I do hope that they still will recruit from the Commonwealth by then as I'm eager to serve.
Created this account just to let any others know. Good Luck to all those who've already made it to basic.

That apps pretty poo.How did you prepare for the mid thigh pull ? - I've been using the app and exercises given from careers office but I'm keen to do anything else to improve without needing to pay for a gym membership
I didnt do anything specifically for it tbh, I'm not that strong at all tbh but pulled enough for 99% of roles so I wouldnt say it is something to worry about alot, I would just say general exercises, push ups, squats, lunges, core work etc would be enough to pass itHow did you prepare for the mid thigh pull ? - I've been using the app and exercises given from careers office but I'm keen to do anything else to improve without needing to pay for a gym membership
