    Hello i am of too selection in 1 weeks 3days and i am preparing my speach and stuff, i need to know what things to talk about and what i should focus on revising for the maths test or is it just general maths knowledge? It would help if you gave me a list of things to talk about and i can expand on them and time my self of a 2mins timer. If you want tell me more about Selection your choice but there my mains worries. Im so nurvous!

    You could always try the search function :roll:
    But here you are anyway...
    -Name
    -Where you're from
    -Family background (any family in the forces etc)
    -Chosen capbadge and why
    -What preparations have you made for selection
    -Your ambitions in life (on of which should be read instructions first IMO)
    -A memorable moment in your life (try to say a story which is funny and will make you look like a bit of a fool, it'll make people laugh and make you seem more approachable)
    -Any interests and hobbies

    Haha, you'll work it out sooner rather than later...I hope.

    I think the icebreaker is the only thing I'm looking forward to. After all its on my specialised subject - Me.
    You should all know a lot about yourselves...being yourselves. The real problem should be condensing it into two minutes.

    Re the ice-breaker - don't forget to mention how switched-on to new technology you are, ability to grasp things quickly, etc. Whatever you do, try not to piss off your instructors. :)
