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. Hi All,

    Thought I would start a thread for the upcoming intake in January. Even though it is so far away!

    Hoping to be selected and hoping to hear from other possible candidates!

    Selection Board sits in the middle on November but hopefully we will know the numbers for each branch beforehand so we can have an idea on the likelihood of selection....
  2. It's not that far away!

    I'm doing my PJFT tomorrow then hoping to bomb my way through Sift and AIB as quickly as possible. I'd previously been advised that May intake would be likely for me but depending on dates I wonder if I'll be able to get in for January.
  3. I wish I was going in the January intake. Alas, I'm on the final two days of this stupid peak flow diary and I will finally be cleared medically fit *fingers crossed*. I've got till November next year to get in. Clock is ticking.
  4. I have to say, I've been really impressed with the speed and efficiency of my AFCO. The single longest wait I've had was between the medical phone interview and the medical face-to-face interview, and that was purely down to availability of appointments.

    My RT was at the end of August, and I'm going in for my Sift next week (beginning October).

    I'm in a similar position to you, Jack - 25th birthday is edging ever nearer...
  5. You have been more fortunate than me then friend. I had my RT in February and my initial medical examination in March and I'm still waiting to be cleared fit. I'm hoping the process will speed up now that I have finished everything CAPITA have asked me to do. Like you, I can't fault my AFCO, but I have lost all faith in CAPITA. I'm hoping I will never have to deal with them again after this. My application has been delayed by months and it has been entirely down to their incompetence as far as I'm concerned.

    Good luck for your SIFT.
  6. I've done every stage except AIB and final aircew medical.
    I have the final AIB board of 25-26th October that will be considered for January Entry.
    Medical thereafter (provisionally) and guaranteed before 9th December.

    Anyone else applying for Observer for January 2017 entry?
    Anyone at my AIB?
    How are you preparing for AIB in particular the interview stage?

    FYI AIB board review is 28th October and entry day is 2nd Jan
  7. When is selection?
  8. The Selection Board sits the 17th November to select individuals for January.

    However other Branches have their own selection board earlier such as Fleet Air Arm as already said in this thread.
  9. Your careers advisor didn't look like this did he?.... ninja 2.jpg
  10. First snag encountered; the lieutenant who was supposed to be conducting my sift interview today has rotated out of careers so now I'm waiting for a new lieutenant and a new appointment. Cutting it bloody fine if I'm going to make it for the mid-November selection board.
  11. Well there's something I hadn't expected - just had a call inviting me to do my Sift via Skype. What a wonderful modern world we live in.
