And there are no places near you where they sell books? Not even a library where you can borrow some? Sounds like you're preparing yourself well - good luck on selection!!!

Remembering what I've been told about P-company, although the BPFA target is 9 minutes or so, you need to be doing it in 8 to pass comfortably.

P-coy that is. For 21 I imagine its that and the ability to tab at high speeds over difficult terrain as well.

I thought it was pretty much spelt out these days in the JIs?

adonwar, just clarify what selection you are going for. P Coy, AACC, entry into the army?
Good point. Selection (note capitalisation) specifically refers to UK Special Forces Selection in common speech.

Go and talk to the nice men at the careers office or (and this is a serious suggestion) go to http://www.armycadetforce.com then register and ask because there are a lot of cadets who go through the regular army selection tests every month and post advice or answer questions. You will get honest advice there.

If you mean "selection" selection , I (when I was a lot younger, fitter and madder) and loooooong before I joined my current Regiment attempted this exercise with the Artists.

Hard hard work, be prepared, both mentally and physically. - I wasn't

At LAST ! The voice of reason.

Cheers Skjold.

Now everyone else can go and do something useful, like get banjoed down the pub.

Your written skills on the other hand are well above par for the AAC, I hope you are going for RCB.

Assuming you have passed your entry exams/tests/pis s takes, then the recruiting staff should give you an information package on how to get yourself fit for recruit selection.
I was not given the information, being my second time round it was assumed i knew what to expect, im not too bothered though because if i remember correctly it didnt help me much back then. Like yourself my cardio needs work, but im sure if you ask these guy's very nicely they would be so kind as to provide you with a few tips. Only been here a few days myself and they dont bite, honest!!. :D
