AIB. All about Admiralty Interview Board - Officer Selection

If you PM me with your details, I will respond privately. It would be inappropriate to comment publicly.
Hi,

I appreciate this is a fairly difficult question to answer, but how long are vAIB's going to continue to be run for? I assume the Navy has an idea when they expect to return to face-to-face AIB's?

Because as I understand it, over the summer period of 2020, where COVID cases were at their lowest, vAIB was still the method of selection. So is that likely to continue to be the case for 2021?

There is clearly uncertainty over if/when we will be able to return to face to face, for the foreseeable future it will be wholly virtual. ACLOs will be informed of all changes in advance, so please keep engaged with your ACLO for the latest guidance. Hope this helps

@AIB as I've got my vAIB coming up, could you please confirm the current format? I've had conflicting information coming through different channels, so at this point some clarity would be very welcome.

Thanks

The email you have received from AIB OES admin is the prime source of info for you, it details exactly what your assessment will be, currently Interview only.

It doesn't help, as your information is out of date. I have posted the current format, anything else is just rumour and speculation.

Hi All,

I appreciate there are 158 pages on this thread and this may have already been asked. However, does anybody have any resources or guidance on how to improve when it comes to the planning exercises? Are there any techniques or tactics that people have used to get information out etc.

Is it worth learning SDT calculations for the planning exercises etc?

Cheers

So failed the virtual AIB today and welcomed to come back in 12 months' time. Can you honestly make enough change within a 12 months period to pass it next time?
I get your upset mate but it’s a challenge. The board have obviously seen potential with you so stop sulking, pull your socks up, get a positive mental attitude and smash it in 12 months

He's hardly sulking. He's asking a question.

But to the point. 12 months is enough time if you don't treat it as such. If you relax, time will fly and you'll have done 9 months and not done anything. Get the ball rolling right now to work on your feedback and you'll be fine. Hopefully.

No, they wouldn't give any feedback and said a full report would be passed on within 7 days. Have decided that I won't be taking it forward as if I was to have passed it then it would have been at this attempt.

You get feedback from the ACLO after the AIB send it to them I believe.

You do realise the AIB only has something like a 60/70% pass rate for first timers right?

What age category are you if you dont mind me asking? early 20's? late 20's? 30's???

I thought about a military life after uni but chose against it as I didnt think id have anything to offer them other than being a young dude in a uniform. I went in the commerical world and I have just passed my 10 year workplace anniversary. Ive done some cool and important things in the past 2-3 years and I now think I have something decent to offer the RN; so I applied at the age or 33.

Just waiting for vAIB now.
