The intelligence corps

#1
I was wandering if anyone is in the intelligence corps and if you are what kind of work do you do? Iv got a brief idea from their website i was wandering if you could go into more detail :)

Also is it hard to get in? Iv done lots of research and iv come to a conclusion that this is the one im going for, it says you need 55 on the BARB test... is it hard to get 55 on the BARB test?

THANKS!

PS. Is revision needed for the BARB test? Is their any resources for revision?

First things first, you wont get a serious answer in this forum so don't be surprised when you get some odd replies.

However to show I'm caring, the BARB test is a doddle, a little bit of logic needed is all. A week or two prior to taking the test you will be given information regarding what the test contains and practise questions.

Try the following:

a. Research English grammar and spelling, with particular reference to the use of capital letters and the irritating need for a final letter "e" in "I've".
b. Try asking in the Intelligence Corps Forum.
c. Don't be disappointed if you get a robust reception.

Caveat - There are of course a few notable exceptions from the above, unfortunately the majority of those people are either coming to the end of their service or signing off. The remainder are caught somewhere in the middle in a state of melancholy disillusionment.
Anybody who slags off the greenslime and then goes on to insert a 'caveat' at the end of a post must someone who once got the knock-back when they tried to TFI.

Undoubtedly so. :D

I know this it's probably bad form to be positive about another cap badge, but here goes....

I transferred into the Int Corps and commissioned out of it and, in my humble opinion, it's pretty great. I've worked with them since and am pretty confident that they have a lower "knobs to alright fella's" ratio than most. Perhaps George believed the Int Corps publications and is angry at Fate for forcing him to check fences and locks rather than finding suitable grassy knolls for assassination attempts? :roll:

On the other hand, your mess kit is a bit, well you know!:dead:
