Hoping that Ninga matey will help, as he seems very helpful.

I have my recruit test tomorrow and I've been gathering all the necessary documentation but with the tattoo proforma I swear I sent it off with my application. I can't really remember 100% and I can't find it anywhere so I presume I did. The reason I'm a bit worried is the bit that says "failure to bring original documentation may result in you being unable to sit the test".

thanks in advance for any replies.

Maybe it means original passport, birth certificate etc rather than photocopies?


Just the thoughts of a blonde ex wren.

I got a letter inviting me to sit a recruit test tomorrow, it says bring passport, NI card, birth certificate, qualifications, NHS number and a tattoo proforma. I sent the tattoo proforma off with my initial application so my question is will it be a problem that I sent it off with my application? Thanks for rapid response guys, much appreciated.

Panic not, it's a generic letter. If you've already returned the tattoo pro forma, it'll be in your pack. If it ain't, you can fill one out on the day - it won't stop you sitting the test.

Good luck.

That sounds suspiciously like common sense. How does the recruiting service get round the ban on that stuff in the military?

I blame the idiot who put the s and the d next to each other on keyboards, oh and the idiot that invented autocorrect. Maybe you should become an English teacher? Well done for being so eagle-eyed.

You did say "any replies"......
Good luck with your RT tomorrow, pop back and let us know how it went.

I've got my medical before my interview, is that common? And by 90% pass rate I mean 90% of people must pass. I got 78 which is 65%.

You should have your interview before your medical but there could be several reasons why it's the reverse for you: Your AFCO may have a backlog for interviews, so in order to keep things rolling, have booked the med first. It could be that there's a declared medical condition that needs to be checked first, or it could be for other reasons. Suffice to say, much more people fail the medical, than interview, so the current sequence is heavily flawed in the eyes of many as it prolongs a negative selection outcome for the unsuccessful individual whilst projecting unrealistic expectations and causes an unnecessary delay for interviews for those intellectually & medically more likely to successfully complete selection.

I'd beg to differ slightly on the Recruiting Test pass rate. There are regional variations, but the pass rate for first preference branch is nearer 50% on average for Officers & maybe 60% for Ratings.
