Hiya, i know that there’s a lot of info on this website about the ratings interview but I was wondering if anyone has any tips on the interview especially as it’s through WhatsApp, I’d be extremely grateful for any tips that anybody has, thank you.

A lot of the more recent comments on the interview remain extant. Most/if not all were completed via what’s app. Have a look through the search box on the top right hand corner and that should help.

I had mine a week or so ago. Watch some YouTube videos and write down the potential questions with your answers, it will help especially with the ones like “why do you want to join?” That you would expect to come up. Majority of it is about you, so have examples of experiences, work history/school grades ready. Research your job (squadrons, what the job entails etc)

Good luck!

Yeah I passed thanks got my eye test and medical triage call Monday. Let us know if you want anymore help with the interview mate but I think they are all a little different depending on the interviewer

Congrats man, good luck with your medical as well. In the interview is it mainly just about yourself and like the training that you’ll do, or do they like ask about what weapons are on each ship and things? Also how long after did you find out you passed?

Cheers. General structure for mine was:

- my current situation. Family, where I live, what my parents think of the application, my responsibilities (do I cook, clean etc), how often I exercise, what have I done to prep for Royal Navy

- school/college. Where, what grades, extra curricular activities including sport and how often

- general questions. Why I want to join, where will I be based, how long is training, what is the salary/benefits, how long do you sign up for when you join, what type of air craft does the FAA have, what does my role entail

My advice is to read up and have notes available. I answered some questions with general knowledge like the professional training is 6 months but I have seen this could be shorter because of COVID-19. That showed I had researched it thoroughly, which probably saved me from some of the trickier questions to follow if you just answered the bare minimum

Found out straight away and she told me the next steps

Alright okay, thank you so much for help it’s really nice of you. What role are you hoping to do? Also did you find most of your info on the RN site, or just by using google?
