http://www.navy-net.co.uk/newbies/32...ay-titles.html and in no way thought I was cheating. My main aim was to get a feel for the sort of subjects that crop up so when the paper was put in front of me the choices were not so much of a shock. I don't find current affairs particularly interesting unless directly affecting myself. I rarely watch the news unless there is a military interest and my paper of choice is Navy News!
You can't slate someone for putting some effort into their preparation; even if there are some things you can't prepare for any little heads up or snippet of information can be useful.
As for my essay, something to do with traffic problems if I remember; as for the other choices I haven't got a clue!

My top tip for AIB is (by all means practice every aspect including the essay, however...) --- it's worth a pidley low number of points --- don't fret too much about the essay.
A valid view is that it WILL be the first impression/aspect of you that the board gets to see and judge, however in the grand scheme you'll be far better off putting more effort into practicing interview technique and likely questions with various friends/colleagues/someone who intimidates you than practicing essays.
Pickup a Saturday copy of the Times, or listen to Radio 4's breakfast (6-9am) or 5-6pm daily summary/discussion of current events for a couple of weeks, practice a handful of military based questions (seems to me that justifying certain aspects - do we need carriers? do we need marines? do we need nuclear weapons? etc. - comes up periodically) and you should be alright.

Lse89 - I'd advise you to look into correct apostrophe use rather than previous essay titles. Your posts are littered with incorrect uses and that will count against you.Opinions stated are those of a Service Medical Officer acting in good faith and a personal capacity. It's unofficial, so don't quote me when it all goes wrong.
Opinions stated are not necessarily those of the Royal Navy or HM Government.
