Out of my misery at last....starting IOT, January 7th

The best piece of advice I was ever given about BRNC was that training there is just a game. Certainly when I went through it bore little or no resemblance to life in the Fleet (is this still the case?), but you've still got to get through it. Just throw yourself into it and don't lose your sense of humour!

Best of Luck - see you out there!

It's rather surprising that the TSO hasn't given you guys/girls that have been "Put forward for selection" (formerly "passed AIB") an indication as to whether you are likely to be selected for which, if any, of the six entry dates that remain extant during the 12 months your AIB remains valid.

Hey P_O how about creating an Official 'I'm Pissed Off Because People Have Had Jan IOT Confirmed But I Haven't' thread.

; )

I would so be in there! Am I right in thinking that Warefare, Pilots and Observers have been selected for Jan intake? Anyone know if Engineering branch has been selected yet?

BTW, congrats Cullie! So jealous!

One week I called and was in, 2 weeks later I was out. The information fluctuated each time I called. The TSO passes on information as and when he has it/ you pester him but he usually says things like "It is looking likely but not certain, I can't be sure, you will have to wait". I don't want to shoot the messenger (this time) and am sure that me, P_O and Blimey are used to waiting blindly.

I am a little lackluster this afternoon so might hold off for another day. Going to the pub at lunch is a killer.

It isn't the drink that is the problem it is the working afterwards part that I struggle with.

What career?

Ah but it's fun to look at your attempted booze fuelled work the morning after! As for your career, fingers crossed for you, but as you're a lunchtime drinker, I'd say you were a "shoo-in", if I knew what that meant!

Hang in there baby!

I am the only other person I know who says "shoo-in", where in the world are you from?
I am hanging in there, just!

Aww well, so whilst you were beering it up, I was breaking sweat in the gym, slowly but surely improving my time! Whoo!

As we have said, I went from 90% in a month ago, to clearly not now, all we ask is that perhaps the Navy could do its applicants a favour and increase the time between last AIB for specific entrants, and perhaps they could have done me a favour, and knowing that I wouldn't be availible until the September entry, given me a more appropriate AIB date.

But hey if you can't take a joke, don't join!

Well if you want to be a warfare officer, that's not a problem - working I mean...

Oh Thank God, I thought for a second you were going to say I would have to work for a living! They have Chiefs and POs for that don't they?

And you wonder why you haven't been selected?
