So obviously with the corona virus a lot of things have been cancelled (understandably) and so my psychometric resit had been cancelled and they went off my gcse results instead (which actually worked out better for me haha!) anyways they explained that I’ll have my first interview over the phone, however I don’t know what I need to brush up on before I have it. (Im going in for seaman specialist btw) does anybody know the things that I need to “revise“ on in order to pass my interview? I did some research but a lot of things posted on websites are dated back to over 7 years ago and have no idea if things have changed since then.
also just one last thing,I know I’ll find this out in the next few days/weeks but if anyone reading this is in the same position I am, have you been told what’s happening with fitness and medical tests? As I heard the run is being done on a treadmill now at home instead of going for the PRNC, and if so I wanna get as much training in as possible.
anyway cheers guys.

I would suggest making a note for your interview of what your role will involve, how much you will be paid and where Phases 1 and 2 of your training will take place - also what will they cover eg berthing a ship etc.

You might want to note down the names of some ships on which you might serve. What are the new carriers called? Can you give the names of some of the ships which are Type 45s?

Where are the Royal Navy's main bases?

The rest of the interview is more likely to be about you, your family, your hobbies, stuff like that.

It's difficult to know exactly what the format of the phone interview will be, but the above might help.

Thank you, that’s actually very helpful :)

Hi, I am in the same position as you except going for a weapons engineer role and have been told there are only 5 that were eligible due to their gcse results, I have got my interview on Monday via Skype, and have been told to memorise a paragraph which I am yet to find and have scoured the internet for it(so if anyone knows of this paragraph it would be much appreciated). I haven't heard anything about the PRNC yet but id imagine we will get told after the interview if it goes well .

T ... have been told to memorise a paragraph which I am yet to find and have scoured the internet for it (so if anyone knows of this paragraph it would be much appreciated).

Can you say more about the paragraph you have been told to memorise?

I cannot if I am honest I have just been told that my interviewer Is quite keen on it, I think It has something to do with either weapons engineering itself or the terms and conditions, I am unsure if I am honest

I dont think so, but I'm not sure so I've attached the document, as it contains no vital information

It’s all parts oppo. That’s what you will be asked. I’ve had to listen to it in the house from the long haired Admiral doing hers all week. The CA will re iterate the interview when they call.

Paragraph 7 looks like it could be one of the questions they may ask just to make sure that you are aware of how long you are signing up for.

I make be very wrong as a long time has passed since I had that interview.

Edit. Just beaten to it by @Dusty70 that's a beer each I guess.
