Hi all Basically, I applied for officer in the naval reserves in April 2012, with the intention being to gain experience to work out if the navy was for me and to gain experience appropriate to my application for a medical cadetship with the Royal Navy. I passed the psychometric test in June 2012, but since then the application process has proven to be longer than I had originally envisaged, as I am only just at the stage of going for a sift interview in August 2013 (the reason it has taken so long is due to being TMU for some time). I sent my application to medical school off in October 2012 and now have an unconditional to study medicine in September of this year. The university I am going to has an URNU, so would my best course of action be to just cancel my Reserves application and do the URNU whilst at uni to gain experience and boost my application? The reason I ask is that the length of time required to complete the BRNC training would mean that it wouldn't really be feasible given my medical degree and, should I be successful, then I would be at the stage of receiving the medical cadetship by the time I finished the training anyway. As such, I'm not sure if it would be feasible to continue with my application for the Reserves? At the time of applying, I wasn't I was going to get accepted for medicine, and I also hadn't considered the lengthy delays regarding medicals etc, so I thought (wrongly) that I would be well on my way by this point. Apologies for the long winded post. Any help would be much appreciated, and thanks in advance.
