Afternoon, lads. Got a few questions here, a couple of them are medical but a couple aren't. (Infantry is my first choice, open to most jobs, though) Regarding the full army medical; I have a history of minor eczema, however I haven't had it for a number of years (can't quite remember the exact amount, perhaps 3-5?). I imagine it will come up when I give my GP the questionnaire. Will this result in a deferral, and if so, are there any estimates as to it's length? I've read about a couple of people who've had 1 year deferral for eczema, but I'm not sure of their history with it, and how long they were eczema-free. Also, I imagine my eyesight passes the minimum requirements, despite wearing glasses. My major worry is my colour blindness. (Apparently, lol) I'm colourblind, I can't make out numbers on the Ishihara test. However, I've never gotten mixed up with my colours before, and one of the other tests will show that. Will I be given a different test on at the location of my medical or will it be off-site/on a different day? Non-medical; Just dropped out of college (second year), couldn't handle the droning about anymore, and was probably going to fail one of my lessons anyway. I'll be going down to the army recruitment office in a few weeks/couple of months, I need to work on my fitness in the mean time. (only reason I went to college is because I wasn't expecting my mam to give consent for the army, and was counting the months and weeks until I could enlist) Do you reckon it's worth trying to get a job, especially in this economic climate, for the months between now and (if all goes well) embarking? If I end up getting 1+ year deferral for my past history with eczema, I'll try and find one, since my mam could do with the money. Also, I'm still undecided on what role I'd like in the army. Infantry or CMT would be my first choices, but really it's the army life I'm looking for, not just infantry/CMT-life. How early into the app process do you decide on your route? Before or after the medical (which will give me an idea of what's available)? This looks like it's becoming a longer post than expected, so I'll cut it now. Cheers in advance for the answers.
