Hi RR, Just a bit of advice needed. Due to being in my final year of compulsory schooling, and therefore sitting my GCSEs this year, the past few months at school have been pretty hectic with a mad rush to get the last pieces of outstanding coursework up to scratch before christmas and then mock examinations straight after which have only just finished last week. Because of this I've delayed sending back the application/medical forms, which I received after passing my psychometric test back in early November, in order for me to fully concentrate on learning the stuff I need to know for the sift interview. So I was just wondering if this delay of a few months between receiving the forms and sending them back would send a negative impression to the chaps at the AFCO. Think it's worth me sticking in a letter apolagising and explaining the reasons for the delay in with my forms? Thanks in advance for any advice I get. James.
