Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi,

    i passed my RT in Aug 2011, i've got my medical next tuesday morning, and following that in my interview (which i believe is straight after it)

    is this how it normally goes? or do they normally do medical, then fitness then interview?

    Cheers

    (passed eye test yesterday)
     
  2. and my current job received a refferance request on saturday also...
     
  3. Who cares?!
     
  4. just seems different to what i've seen, wondering if it's a good thing (shorter wait) or...?
     
  5. thought the PJFT was after the medical then the interview.

    its all on the royal navy website anyway.
     
  6. same.... think i'll give them a ring to check i heard right
     
  7. I did medical, fitness now waiting for sift interview then AIB :]
     
  8. Your medical will always be first. But I suppose it depends on how long your wait is when it comes to the fitness test. For example if you've got a 2 year wait, you may not do your fitness test until your second year of waiting, as if you did one in the first year you'd have to do another one due to it expiring after a year.

    I hope this makes sense?
     
  9. The normal process is RT, Medical, PJFT and then interview. But that said if it suits we can change the order so that someone makes less journey's to the Careers office.

    Your own CA will always make sure that all the things are done in the quickest and easiest route.

  10. cheers guys, thats clears things up.
    i checked and my interview is following straight after my medical, providing i pass it that is!

    guessing i have some wait to go then also, i was secretly hoping i'd jumped the que a little
     
  11. Order as per Supermario stated.

    Your RT is valid for 3 years.

    Medical has to be done annually for Aircrew candidates; it is otherwise valid until you turn 18 or 30. i.e.. if you are 17 you will have to have a further medical if you are still waiting when you reach your 18th birthday. Likewise when you hit 30 (that's a long wait...). You must have completed a medical before doing your fitness test.

    Your fitness test (like for those of us serving) is valid for a year - and is not difficult!
    Your AFCO may therefore hold off asking you to do some of these evolutions to save you repeating them during a long wait for a particular branch.

    You will also find that you will require an update interview after a year if still not entered.
     
  12. cheers bud :)
     
  13. Hope to jump the queue!? I think not mate!
     
  14. is it true that the better your RT score the more likely you are to get in sooner then someone who didn't do aswell?
    or is that all cobblers
     
  15. It's cobblers. You only get in sooner if you bribe your Careers Adviser with chocolate hobnobs.
     
  16. hmmmm wonder if i'd get fast tracked if i quietly placed some carmel chocy digestives on the table, no words spoken, just a look! ;)
     
  17. Good idea..........
