This week I had my 1st stage interview with a retired Colonel about my application to a RE troop commander. He said I was suitable to go to AOSB Briefing but I have postponed this due to a shoulder injury playing rugby, until May time. The Colonel suggested 4 Corps to look at as well as the RE these were; RLC, Infantry and REME. The REME visit was slightly different as I am going to try and pursuade them to send me to University while in service (if I make it through the other stages). This was arranged at my interview as the Colonel rang the REME recruitment Officer. When should I look to hear back from the Corps? Also has anyone else been given the opportunity to study at University whilst serving? Also from the interview he suggested reading The Times newspaper as well as reading the Financial Times. From looking at forum threads about AOSB Briefing the common questions asked by the respective Officers were about "current" leading front bench politicians. What other "curve balls" could I expect to hear, so I can at least do my research and get a heads up on this. Many thanks hope for some helpful advice.
