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. Can someone in the know help?

    I know currently there are around 2000 people waiting for phase 1 dates and the royal artillery where 1 of the most back logged with potential recruits but does anyone know when the vacancy list will be out and people start getting loaded into training? Also does anyone know on average how many people Pirbright intake every month? Thanks
  2. There are a huge number of factors that govern recruit intakes and availability ranging from availability of chosen job choices, number of recruits currently going through the system, current manning levels, time of year and probably hundreds more factors I've not listed or even know about.

    The simple fact is nobody here can really answer your question with any kind of authority so you are best heading down to your recruitment office and pumping them for any information they can give you, if anything.
  3. The minimum wait to start basic from the date of applying is 1 year atleast. More popular job choices are backlogged up to 2.5 years. Your only chance of getting a quick entry is if someone drops out and you get their place, so get in line. :wink:
