Interview numbero uno tomo. Any last min tips?

#1
I have my first interview tomorrow to see whether i am suitable for AIB. Revised loads, training, BRNC, specialist subject area, locations and i was just wondering does any one have any last minutes tips for me?

And can i just check options for leaving. You can leave during officer training or at the end of officer training but then once you have signed up its a 12 year contract? I keep finding different info and am a little confused.

Cheers :)

I've organised things at uni and led a camping expedition on an outward bound course. I can think of a few other things as well on a sailing trip and at my local archery club so hopefully im set there but i am a little worried at how many examples i need.

Know how long the commission is you join on.

Have an idea how many people are in the RN and what the size of the defence budget is.

Know who the First Sea Lord, Second Sea Lord and Commander in Chief Fleet are.

Make sure you mention the 'pastoral' responsibilities of an officer, thats ensuring their guys welfare, talking to them about problems etc. when asked about the role of an officer.

This last one sounds obvious but it catches many out, forumulate an answer to the million dollar question: Why do you want to be an officer in the Royal Navy?
