Mate of mine fancies going in for the sixth form scholarship scheme, probably next spring. Now I wish him all the best, not one to slag off a friend and all that... but he's, politely put, a power athlete (salad dodger in normal English). He's convinced that he doesn't need to do any training, all the PT required is a 500m sprint and an obstacle course, and 'they're only judging effort anyway'. Now reading the army website it is, granted, less than clear about whether the normal press-ups, sit-ups and mile and a half running are tested on this board. Now I don't want to come at him like a massive bellend, but equally I wouldn't be too happy if he failed because he hadn't done the training. Anybody who's done it care to set him straight?
