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. Hey ive got my AIB in a few months, ive read all the other stuff on RR, but is there any other advice any one can give me, or anything new?

  5. Read the joining package and take action as appropriate on advice given.
    Buy a suit, three shirts and a couple of ties. Ask your Mum if they match.
    Watch the news / read the newspaper headlines / have an opinion.
    Brush up on English basics. Be able to summarise text, write essays.
    Brush up on Math basics and practice so you can do simple stuff quickly.
    Do Psychometric testing until your eyes hurt.
    Attempt spacial awareness problems (good luck with that one).

    Good luck.

  6. Which date do you have aad? I have been loaded onto the Nov 4th date.
  7. never answer the phone while doing the ironing
  8. Is your AIB for the RNR? (I ask since this is on the RNR board)
  9. yes it is an RNR one
  10. All AIB info has been done to death on this forum - pretty much the best place to find out all the info is this thread here: having done the AIB recently as an RNR DE, I can confirm it is exactly the same format as described in the link. My board consisted of 2 RNR, 1 SUY and 1 civilian entry, if that gives you anything to go by. All I will say is that RNR naval knowledge paper is the SUY one, therefore it is more detailed than the straight forward civilian entry. I assume the theory here is that you've started life as an AB and therefore you have a better knowledge of all things RN. This can be a bit tricky if you're going in as a DE. I did make this point to my AFCO so I don't know if its been looked at.
