Why are we still doing the IPSE(R)?!

Discussion in 'Staff College and Staff Officers' started by Modfather, Apr 6, 2002.

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. Call me old fashioned but I cannot undertand the reasoning now behind over a hundred Capts sitting through 4 weeks of death by viewfoil to then sit an exam which will have no effect on over 90% of them as the results will not count to selection for Satff College in the future!

    Maybe someone here can explain why we are still doing it - I suspect it is for little else than to try and keep us interested during thrilling tales of Clausewitz v Jomini!

    No doubt many of you will point out that the exams were much harder in your day (MK and all that) and I agree - but at least the exams then had a reason!
  2. Just to give you something to winge to ARRSE about............................perhaps there is a higher purpose within the MOD.............but then again..........
