Navy application procedure

Evening All,

I have passed all of the required test so far in regards to joining the navy, I have also been told in a interview I have been accepted and am eagerly awaiting my turn for basic training.
I have not been given anything in writing though to state that I have been accepted. Is this normal or should I have received a letter informing me of this? I only ask because I have left my job as a trainee tech to move to a job nearer my home to fill the gap between now and starting.

Sat my RT test and done rely well, got told I have done better then most people do buy quite a bit, I asked what my scores were and he said I am not allowed to see them yet, to his folly he assumed I am not able to read numbers when there upside down, if he thinks that simple skill like that are beyond the so called smart of are generation then it kind of says it all.
'Outwitted' a Careers Adviser with many years experience who obviously didn't intend you to read the score, because he was oblivious to the fact they had written it on the front of the pack, face-up on the table between you both. Clumsy, eh? Tsk.

Evening all

I have had all my test and a final meeting in the interview in the careers office and I am basically awaiting my first days at basic.

I had a bit of a brain fart and forgot a rather important question, When I sat my Psychometric Test I was informed that the waiting list was 9 to 12 months but now it seems to be around the 16 months mark.

Does this new waiting list apply to me as in I will start 16 months after my test as opposed to a year or is this just to people starting the application now?

Cheers
Forgot to ask Careers Adviser of possible expected entry date.

In summary:

You have a mortgage, passed the test Feb-April (?), knew the waiting times were incresased to 16 months for your chosen trade, (possibly extended by a futher 6 months due to a 6 month break in Recruit training Nov 20110- May 2011) no offer of service/provisional entry date, have changed jobs in anticipation of an entry date.

If all else fails, it maybe as well to ring your 'dozy' careers adviser & ask.

Kind of says it all - Good luck.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I will be calling them tomorrow!

There is more to the changing my job than just the navy thought mate, mainly to do with location, paying rent to work in Aberdeen when I have a house in fife and I get a pay increase with my new job.

But I tip my hat to that one as I certainly haven’t made myself sounded like the brightest tool in the shed with some of my questions. :oops:

Bloody hell I really should double check what I type before I click post. I think I had better give up and get some rest.

6 month break in Recruit training Nov 20110- May 2011
Could you elaborate on this please?
No new entrants between these dates
Do you mean new entrants to take the RT? I'm assuming if you've already started the process then you carry on?
No new entrants through Raleigh Gates
Is there a recruit break at any time for Officer selection?

Use search function lots of posts and threads on this subject. It would save repeating old info

I did. To no avail. :oops:

I've searched 'recruit break, recruit times, periods, stop recruitment' and all sorts. I wasn't being lazy.
 
Several of the Stickies in the Newbies forum have info for Officer Applicants. Just a thought.

Because it's 11:26pm and I'm just bumming about on the net, and thought I'd ask. I would clearly phone them sooner or later. I'm not depending on one resource.

Ah right, not offence was intended, It just seems alot easier for some of the 'newbies' to just sit and ask questions on here rather that speak directly to the people with the definate answers!!

No.

Numbers may well be trimmed for some branches but there are no plans to freeze new entries at BRNC as I write.
