London999 - you should maintain a sense of humour at all times and give your everything in every test. Effort is as valuable as achievement.

They just said give it your best effort, somwhere between couch potatoe and where you should be after your training!!

Hey chaps , Iv got mine on the 12th too, my units taking me on the 11th to get down there they have not told me where it is but im coming from Durham if anyone has any ideas. Test wise , just what you should already be training for which is the mile n a half run in under 14mins. 50 sit ups in 2-4 mins,and 44 press ups in 2mins. Along with that i belive command orders, and some sort of lifting ( jerry cans perhaps ???????? ).. I find them easy but need to work on press ups more.

Im looking forward to this. Shame we can only get 35 days pay in the TA , but you do get paid for the selection weekend if you pass, 2 and a half days pay.

I second this, and would go further. While everyone was happy with the recruits on my course who passed the PT tests, they were happiest with those that had improved the most since their first showing (not me on either count...).

Also, while I had what I thought was a p*ss-poor showing on the indoor obstacle course, I got a lot of praise for continuing to throw myself at it long after I lost the will to live or the ability to stand.

At one point I thought I was going to lose control of my bowels I was so beat, but I don't think they saw that.

Good luck.

Mate you'd be suprised what they pick up on without you realising. Your not the first bunch of recruits they've had. Throwing yourself at obstacles to the point of losing control of bodily functions, despite being completely knackered, is just the sort of attitude they're looking for.

Good efort!

Im going on a selection weekend for the RMP TA please could you lot tell me what tests there are going to be, both mental and physical. I think there may be written tests as well do you know what theses are? And any pass marks??

Many Thanks
why have you posted more than one thread on this same question?

i just read the first one and it asks for the same info !

did you fail for the rmp's if so have you not learned anything?

the biggest mistake is not to learn from your mistakes!

:?

as above,if you can only do 10 press ups do em and try to do more

its effort effort effort, don't quit period!

and most of all a pearl of wisdom

have a laugh with the staff but don't take the piss or back chat

regards
