Imf Passout

Taking a wild stab in the dark, without knowing how it is marked etc, I would say that the individual was perceived to not be putting in the effort? There could be number of factors involved, maybe the individual had/has form be loafing in phys?

I am sure the individual will have been counselled by their PT staff/DI on areas to improve on.

Don't get yourself bent out of shape about passing, as that will make you more anxious and it will snowball into blowing things out of proportion.

Unless rope climbing has changed since I did it (highly unlikely), it is all down to technique. I seem to remember "Arms up, knees bent, short shift, long shift, hands placed on top".

Anecdotally, I was rubbish at chin ups (probably had to do with my pigeon arms). Someone showed me the correct/best way to do it and then it is all down to practice and muscle memory.

Get some practice in under the supervision of the club swingers and it will also show C2DRIL.

Good luck.

Ask for some extra tuition in any spare time you can find.

"Staff, I am struggling with the rope climb. Is there any chance, please I could find some time for an extra session to help me with this?"

At least the PTI's will then be able to show that you have accepted responsibility, and tried to do something positive to resolve the situation. The best possible outcome is, of course, that a little 1-2-1 tuition helps your technique.

You have come to far to waste it all on one little rope-climb.
All the best

I wouldn’t rely on 2 deck dits. Also, if you are going to aim for failure it will be very apparent. There will be a duty PTI on a weekend and after secure. Their name is on Daily Orders. Touch base with the DI’s for the number to arrange.

Or get your DI to help a remedial program with the PTI. You have then demonstrated as per my post and Branch Hoppers.

I find it quite hard to believe there isn’t a duty PTI at a weekend in a Phase 1 training establishment (unless he is doing a cracking Lord Lucan impression). We have 1 LPT and no one is here at weekends!

I will have a look on Daily Lies when I am back in work for RAL and get back to you.

And also in my PT sessions they do write some peoples name written down on the board who struggle and mine is never on their
So public naming and shaming? I’m not sure how I feel about that. Maybe it’s a modern leadership TQ. Not my style I have tbh.

T&B, if you can say you’ve done all you can and can hand on heart say you’ve tried your best. That’s all you can do.
