I have scheduled myself to get in to Sandhurst's May intake. I would like to continue to aim for this, but I am also taking a journalism NCTJ course from this September until February, which runs 4 days a week - and will reduce my available time for fitness training. Ideally, it would be great to know that if I didn't get in for May, I could go straight in to try for the September entry. However, I am aware they give you a minimum period of 6 months before attempting re-entry (can it be longer?). So even though the course starts only 4 months later, a failed first entry could result in not being eligible to re-apply until I would be in the running for January's intake. So the question is: - Do I take a risk and aim for May, knowing that if I was unsuccessful it might be January until I could expect to have another go. - Do I take a more measured approach and wait to go in next September? What do you think - and have I correctly understood this information?
