Hey! Thanks for the information! What's the branch interview like?
Basically you go off in a group to your chosen branch so AET to ex AET a warfare to an ex Warfare etc and They give a presentation about the course and what you do on ship. You can ask as many questions about your role in the interview . It’s a good insight into your role

If you're going Collingwood don't be shocked if you don't get your boots haha, only some of us did the rest of us got a letter to give a Raleigh so they give us the boots, so if you get this letter remember to bring it to Raleigh or you have to pay 120 quid for the boots

How come people were throwing up during the 4km squad run? Did you all get beasted with pushups, burpees, etc. during the run?

Every 1k has a mini exercise such as carrying each other push ups, planks and sprints etc
At the end you have a 800m sprint give 100% because our class didn’t and we had to do it again

A boy threw up on mine aswell, 2 girls finished crying not sure why
The throwing up was because we did the 3.2km and the last 800meeters we had to sprint in 3 minutes, we all did it and a girl did it in 3 mins 3 secs so we had to run back to the 800m starting point and do it again, by then we was all sick luckily we all made it this time and didn't have todo it again...

We were at the same PRNC I thought it was a decent crack tbf.

Sitting to attention during the swim test was hard I had water in my eye and needed to rub it got my press ups just as someone started struggling in the pool so I think the PTI forgot I was there. I’m sure I was doing press ups for about four minutes before he finally told me to fall in

Just a warning you’ll be tired and hungry most of the week
