It seems that a lot of people are curious about the timing from the beginning of their applications to the time they start phase 1. To give people an idea this is my timetable so far. end of july...collected application form. beginning of August....returned forms. Couple of days later, barb test, basic literacy & numeracy tests completed Beginning of September med history arrived at carreers office & sent to where-ever they are sent. Two weeks into September accepted for further interviews a couple of days after. Total of just over a calender month for application. This included an extra application process due to being a serving soldier before. When I get my next dates I'll let you all know. Hopefully this should give some people an idea of how long the application process takes.
