    great, should be able to sprint all the way ;)
     
  3. What do you mean?
     
  4. 0800-0900

  5. Ahh I see. Alteration on its way :lol:
     
  6. The above is just a guide, the times are abit out of date, as we did medicals when we got there which was about 11am.

    Had interviews at about 2 the next day and left at 2.30.
     
  7. Since I got ADSC on thursday I'd assume it is up to date 8O
     
  8. Iv just got back from glencourse 2 weeks ago, that timetable is up to date.
     
  9. Very helpful cheers.
     
  10. Does the programme differ, depending on the Selection Centre? As I can't remember having any team activities (indoor or outdoor) on the first day, during my last selection at Lichfield.
     
  11. The timetable hasnt changed since i was at glencorse 8 years ago
     
  12. I have selection next week at Pirbright. My JI's practically say the same thing, eventhough written in 06. ADSC's differ slightly but as a whole, they all sing off the same song sheet I believe. We shall see!
