Applications have been forwarded to the A.I.B

I received this email 7 days ago:

This is a courtesy e-mail to advise you that your application forms have been forwarded to the Admiralty Interview Board (AIB) for consideration.

The AIB will contact you direct in due course.
What does this mean?? That they are considering whether I will even get to go to the A.I.B or are they just considering dates that I could go on as I have exams at the moment? I haven't heard anything else from them since I received this email, and am concerned as to what is happening with my application...

can anyone enlighten me?

Assuming you already know that you meet eligibility for the job with regard age, gender, medical suitability, financial status, criminal record, nationality, residency, recruiting test scores & academic attainment, then just remove the words "for consideration" from the above text, sit back, chill, revise...and wait for an AIB date.

If you weren't being considered for an AIB place then your forms wouldn't have been sent on to them, would they now?

No mystery here - It means what it says on the label; seven days seems too short to expect any more news just yet.

As you have exam dates lined up one must presume that you have already informed your CA of your 'unavailability'. It's only logical to assume that he/she would then have notified the AIB accordingly.

OTOH If you have not made your 'unavailability known, I'd suggest that you do so soonest.
Everything is fine, don't worry. Keep your phone at hand though, because they will send you a text to confirm your AIB. It's part of the SDSR - the Andrew can't afford stamps like they used to be able to.
Turns out a contract with Vodafone with unlimited texts is a much more economic way of informing POCs of their impending AIB.

This is a joke. Please don't wait by your phone...
