  1. Hi guys, new to the site.

    I have my Medical on Friday, and I'm a bit worried. I am about 6 ft and about 13 stone 11.

    My question is, do you have to do a running test in the actual medical, and if so, what happens if you don't pass? Does this mean I will be unable to apply again?

    I would also like to know what the medical consists of.

    Cheers all,

  3. You are required to run at a steady pace on a treadmill for the duration of the medical. This can make some of it a bit of a challenge - cough and drop, providing a urine sample etc. (if you accidentally urinate on the Doctor it really sets a bad tone for the rest of the medical) so get down to your local gym and start practicing.
