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. Hello there.

    This is my first post and I'd be v grateful if you could offer me some advice. I'm going in to my local Army Careers Office having watched the DVDs, read the booklets and generally considered this for a long time!!

    Could you please give me a rough outline of what i can expect in the order of things ie, how long after the initial visit would i be expected to take my initial fitness test? Really keen to get on with the application process and any info is welcome.

    Hoping there is a gap between taking the BARB test (I assume this is one of the 1st things to happen?!) and taking the fitness test as i need to improve quite a bit. At what point is the medical profile sought?

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Check your PM
  3. Hiya, firstly phone up your local ACO and they should give you all the information you need. I have recently applied, done my BARB test and interviews just waiting for the dates for my fitness tests - i have been waiting since 1st Dec since they recieved my medical forms.

    Good luck!
