any other waiting for start dates for hms raleigh

Ah now, might be in with some luck as the request for the paperwork was resent yesterday to the line manager of the Army medical records place by a very patient CA from my AFCO. So fingers crossed this will be the lucky one :)

Hoping to hear back soon and have some forward motion on the application. Forgotten how long the ETME (SM) wait is but after this hell I'v had.....it's gotta be worth it


Good luck with it S_C !! Hope you get some good news soon! (why do you wanna be a submariner?)

BTW, how the hell do you shave an entire 3 minutes off your 1.5 miler within two weeks?! are you superhuman?!!? lol :p
 
Because the Submarine branch is both at the tip of the spear regarding the technology race, and also are the most important branch as they handle the country's nuclear Deterrant. Mainly I've always just loved the idea of submarines and the fact that for years they were considered similar to pirates :p

Erm, hard work, sore feet and stubborn refusal to accept that I'm a chubby git.

Shame to think you've been waiting so long and still haven't done your medical and interview. Come on JPA sop messing about eh!
 
Well as anyone who has ever had contact with JPA knows.......its a nightmare. It makes me feel sorry for all the writers who are applying out there......your soon to be new best friend Mr JPA will drive you nuts :p

"There are an estimated 2000+ applicants awaiting an entry date," when i had my interview i was told there was about 5000 applicants waiting for an entry date and this was in september 2010 have 3000 really passed out since then ???
 
Doubt it'll be the case though, however, knowing what my RT results were like I'd happily see one of the resident CA's confirm its all true about the queue jumping :p haha

But also you need to look at those people who are older i.e. 35 when applied for example with the upper age limit and waiting time those people can't join because by the time they get in they will be over the age limit.
 
He said Engineering applicants. now the age limit is down to 30 they are doomed anyhow.

All joking aside however, I dont seriously think the queue jumping thing is anything more than a rumour

I agree with you SC I can't believe they'd do it on the RT scores, but if they do happy days (I think :s) Anyhow the change to the upper age limit for engineering trades should shorten waiting times a little you'd have thought?
 
There is apparently a practical reason for the age limit lowering according to my CA. He did explain it but I was stuck making phone calls to JPA for the rest of that day to find my old med records and dealing with civil servant type people ..... causes amnesia.
