Completed my 1.5 miles in 9.32, quite happy although i could have done better but my nervous made my throat feel like i swallowed sand.

Im just wondering how long till i get joining dates, do i need to do the interview and then i will get my joining dates ? if so how long after. Only reason why i ask is, if its before i finish A levels,(my A2 year anyway) i dont want to be going to collage for half a year as it would be a waste of time when i could be putting my time to better use.

How about some details:
Which branch?
When did you sit the recruiting test?
Why haven't you asked AFCO today if you needed an answer ASAP?

Got a called from the schools secretory at 5.30pm (open longer as its a boarding school) saying they need to know. not sure why they need to know this early but they do apparently.

I set the RT as soon as i could so when i was 15, not sure on date and month. but im a month away from being 17.
As for branch warfare specialist.

You can't remember the month you sat your RT.

Well it's 15 years 9 months to sit it and you're 1 month from 17 so I would 14 months ago.

Waiting can be 2-3 years easy, I'm not certain for that branch though.

I agree. A 6 month collage module is an extremely long time to spend on a single visual form, especially when there are far more important aspects of Art to concentrate on. I'd go to a different art college.

I would suggest that staying at collage is not going to be a waste of time, no matter how soon you may get your dates.
just out of interest, what "better use" (obviously better than furthering your education) of your time did you have in mind?
Learn from others, one more mong was almost a Commando, and that fell through for him! :biggrin: There are no Guarantees in this life.

If you have already completed your AS year I would recommend getting A levels. They will be useful to you on the 'outside' and if the navy isn't all you thought it would be you haven't put all of your eggs into one basket. I am waiting for a start date too, but chances are you will have time to complete the year anyway, and maybe make the most of joining any sports teams etc?

better use of my time would be doing something i enjoy and can get a job out of, outdoor instructor courses is something i was looking into to fill my time or learn a trade, so if navy life isnt for me, i can fall back on something i want to be doing, Just for me A levels are gonna be pointless, my grades so far have been below a C or a C. and im not interested in getting in debt before im 20 by going to university. There are a load of other reason to, just prefer then to speak about them on a public forum.

That's me told!:biggrin:
You have answered your own question, if you can find a job you love, you'll never work a day in your life.
