AIB decision reversals

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. A friend of mine has been phoned up and told her previous fail/return has been changed to a pass. This is an odd precedent, why has it come about after a year or so? Is this widespread?
  2. What branch was she going for? A mate of mine is in the recruiting game a the mo' and says that the grades required for selection for some of the branches are now below the base level AIB Pass. Esp Observer...
  3. engineering ofsomekind
  4. Wrong forum - please keep all such talk to Newbies.
  5. you RN lot aren't very welcoming are you?
    A polite re-positioning of thread would have been the arrse way ofdoing things, I wassimply making acivil enquiry.
  6. I apologise - bad day and all that. I would have thought that a moving of the thread was actually ruder - sorry if you were offended.
  7. You're beyond the realms of ARRSE now, my lad.

    Thar be matelots here!

    Admittedly not *here* as I'm a Tom, but here sort of generally and round about, as it were.

    Rather detracted from my pseudo-dramatic comment there, didn't I.
  8. its ok, it would have been hard for you to read the autocue with eyepatch on and parrot flapping about....

    However, to return to the issue,what gives? AIB has always been a mystery to me (you can pass but not get in etc) but not passing and then getting in after a year or so seems odd, why not just a call back to AIB (my pal had originally got a fail/encourage)?
  9. They are getting desperate of course. It's not rocket science.
  10. unfortunately, it is.Therefore one has to wonder...
  11. You're talking about one case here ... ? Do you know of others? Perhaps your friend was so close that it simply made sense to re-think it? Maybe they got it wrong first time round?

    It would be interesting to know exactly what reason they gave for the reversal of decision. Are you able to elaborate on your original post?

  12. What did she fail on in the first place? If it was a medical decision or some other borderline issue then I could understand it. Surprised about the change of result though.

    Sounds like the old joke - three women go for a job interview; a blonde, a brunette and one with black hair. Which one gets the job? The one with the biggest tits... 8O :lol:
