Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi

    I am going on an "assessment weekend" for the Int Corps TA this weekend. It involves 1.5 mile run, aptitude tests etc. I've been out running today and my knee just gave way. I'm worried that this will affect my performance over the weekend and stop me getting in the Int Corps. If this does happen, does it mean I can't try again or go for any other corps? I'm currently at uni and really want to go into the TA now so that by the time I graduate I will be in a position to be able to go tours etc.

  2. There was a time when recruits would get binned for failing a fitness test. Now they are allowed to pass out even if they can't make it to the cookhouse!!
  3. If you can't run, you can't hide, therefore you probably won't pass the fitness standards.
  4. Just let the DS know......if you come up to standard in all other areas I'm pretty sure you'll be given a chance
