Sorry to hear you weren't selected, I think your ET(ME) entry date will either be the same or pretty soon after the provisional AA entry date.Didn't get in this time, as expected. Not sure what I'll do - one of my options was go ET ME and hope for fast track.
The email didn't say when the next ET ME intake is. Is it quite regular, Ninja?
If you weren't in the mix for this entry, then you'll be in the next "lucky dip" unless you opt to join as aan standard technician. Your Careers Adviser should be able to advise the next AA intake, I don't have the dates to hand unfortunately.I asked the PO at the office and he said he'll find out and tell me next week. I never had a provisional date, so I won't be waiting till next November, will I?
The AA selection board has today released the results for the next entry. If you have not heard yet, call your AFCO.
My AFCO told me I wasn't selected for November on 1st September, so I think you must have not been selected as well. Unless your AFCO have somehow not been told?Is it safe to assume that I’ve probably missed the November 4th entry ?
Sorry for the long winded message but my AFCO is giving me very little useful advice.
That’s exactly what I thought, just spoke to him again and he’s saying that I shouldn’t listen to anything I read on here as people gossip but I just think he doesn’t actually know that the selection has been done. I’m stuck in a difficult position now because hes the only person I’ve dealt with during my application and if he doesn’t know what’s going on then who does ...My AFCO told me I wasn't selected for November on 1st September, so I think you must have not been selected as well. Unless your AFCO have somehow not been told?
What age are you if you don’t mind me asking ? The reason I ask is that from speaking to a mate of mine that’s in the navy he seems to think that people towards the upper age limit with more experience is more likely to be selected than someone fresh out of college with a level 3 qualification.My AFCO said he's asking whoever decided the AA intake why I didn't get in, but I wonder if we'll get an answer. Might not be something they talk about.
Definitely have to try, I’ve done an apprenticeship already and I’m 24 so I’m approaching the age limit but my AFCO didn’t actually apply for my start date until mid July and I still don’t have a provisional start date so expected to not even be considered for selection. Which is what’s happened. I just wish I knew when the next intake for AAME is because the other AA schemes have another intake in March but the ME scheme doesn’t18 - and I did A-levels, which means I was quite unlikely to be selected anyway. Add to it that I only sent off the application for it 2 weeks ago and there was no real hope. Have to try, though!
Be careful with that because a mate of mine picked up fast track when he joined and they’ve since stopped offering it as they are recruiting externally for fast tracksMy AFCO told me the next AA intake was next November. Too long for me to wait, so I'm going ET ME and trying to get on the fast track scheme.
I was also told there's AA AE and AA SM intakes in March, but I'd rather marine engineering on a ship than either of those.
