I'm a commonwealth applicant who was given an assessment date after RGMD but was refused a visa so I informed my CSM who cancelled my assessment and told me they'll give me a new date.Is anyone here who passed RGMD and waiting to be given an assessment date?
That's unfortunate for the refusal but i Hope it all goes smoothly. I'm a commonwealth applicant myself. I'm eager to get that assessment date. Did your recruiter or CSM give any hints on when you'll likely to get a another date?I'm a commonwealth applicant who was given an assessment date after RGMD but was refused a visa so I informed my CSM who cancelled my assessment and told me they'll give me a new date.
I'm currently waiting for an assessment date so that I can reapply for the visa.

You will get sent Joining Instructions which will have a full agenda on them. They will almost certainly be out of date though, so take them with a pinch of salt.
From what I’ve read on various websites most people ignore this as the only ones you can get that are 1200 are dry irons which aren’t really any good as you’d have to constantly spray water on the bottom. I got a 2400 watt steam iron but made sure it was relatively heavy pre-filling as it helps to get rid of creases you don’t want but makes good crisp creases when you want themAnyone at Pirbright.
The kit list says maximum of 1200w iron, but can’t find any iron with that low power.
What (watt) iron have you taken
Cheers for this mate, not bricking it quite as much nowYou arrive the night before your 9am event start. You get your bedding, have a brief, get some forms to fill out for the next day. This is the point where you may (or may not) do your icebreaker, it depends on which selection staff you get. Some do it, some don't bother.
Your first full day starts at about 6am, you'll have another brief, hand your filled in forms in, have some breakfast and head to the medical which takes pretty much all day depending on your surname. You'll get pulled from this in groups to do other bits and bobs like any tests (ACT/TST/Maths/English if you don't have your quals). You'll also likely do your non-running physical tests here (we did the bag lift and jerry can, I believe it's changed now).
Your second full day you'll do your 3 group tasks, your grenade throw, your run and the 'interview' (it's not really an interview, it's just a pretty informal chat about how well you did at each task, etc. At the end of this you'll get a long list of jobs you qualify for depending on your test results as well as colourblindness) You'll finish your interview between about 12 and 3, get your goody bag and packed lunch and then off to the train for about 4ish.
December 12th ?Hi please can u help us out with some information concerning your training in Ac lichfield as I will be having my assessment there in December.. How did the first day go for you and did u arrive before the actual Date in your candidate portal?? And please what's d 2k run like???
It’s all up to you mate, but I’d recommend going in smart clothes. You want to make a good impression. And don’t worry about turning up sick, that’ll show you’re committed and I’m sure they won’t mind one bit. Good luck.I have my pre selection thing tomorrow at the careers office, I was just wondering about the dress code and would it be okay to turn up sick, I started coming down with the flu today but I need to battle through cause phoning tomorrow seems like it’s just to late
