a couple days after getting to raleigh i know you have to complete the 2.4km run. Does the score you get have to match the PJFT or the actual RNFT. I know it sounds silly but people keep telling me different!
Mind you, it is something of a 'cultural' thing now. Walking round Plymouth about 50% of the people (usually orange people) that I see are consuming something.
Awareness of this does help when I am being grunted at by a trainee and he or she takes a swig from his or her bottle - I resist the temptation to shove it down their throat, which aids the long-term mortgage commitments really.
You need achieve the PJFT time on the first Tuesday and the RNFT time in week 7. You do not carry your "cute water bottle around with you". You need to pass first time as you dont want to be on remedials from week 1 as your kit maintenance will start to suffer which will lead to kit remedials and so on...... 100% effort and you will pass.
