So guys, I've just got back from my prnc today! It was so great! I was so nervous going there, but trust me, there's no need to be.
The course has also changed. So on the Tuesday morning you do your 1.5 mile run round the parade square (6 laps). Wednesday morning, swim test. All you have to do to pass the swim test is swim 50m in 4 minutes in YOUR swim wear. If you pass that you will try the naval swim test. You will wear a pair of overalls, jump in the water, tred water for 2 minutes, and again, swim 50m in 4 minutes, no need to worry if you fail this, but show the instructors that you're giving 100%! After these two are passed, you have pretty much passed the course aslong as you keep your self on the straight and narrow. The sub/ship visit at faslane is unreal, so enjoy it! Thursday morning you go for breakfast then get into pt kit and conduct a squad run, which for us was 3 laps of the camp, around 2 'miles, after that you have your final debrief and receive certificates! Enjoy it guys, it's great fun.

Hope this helps!
