Warfare Officer BRNC intake numbers (May-Jan 17)

Tingle

Hello!

Having passed my AIB last week and just getting off the phone with my careers adviser I was told to be "Reasonably optimistic" about a May selection date.

The board for May apparently meet in March/Feb according to my careers liaison and they discuss the number of each role taken in to each intake based on the needs of the service etc.

Does anyone know if Warfare Officers are currently over/under-subscribed and the chances of a reasonable pass making it into the May/Sept AIB?

I understand I'm asking for a lot of information here but I'm considering starting an Open University language course to top up my degree in the time between and knowing the potential timescales would be helpful on deciding a course.

Thanks,
T.

Without a) being at the board meeting that decides the numbers and b) knowing your exact AIB score, it would be pretty difficult to give you the information you want. Have you been told when to expect to find out? Surely the best plan is to wait until you know?!

I totally understand what I'm asking for is a rather difficult arbitrary estimate but if I do get selected for May I won't find out until earliest the middle of March.
This leaves little room for the courses I would like to do before a May Dartmouth date.
I guess in reality the question I was asking was how under/over subscribed warfare officer is at the moment and whether it's likely to be a priority focus for the May BRNC intake.

Again, apologies for asking such vague questions. I'm trying to plan my life around potential entry dates and any further information anyone can provide is helpful.

The best I can say is that there are enough AIB passes to fill the (usual) required MAuN (maximum authorised numbers). I wouldn't say massively 'over-subscribed' but some lower pass marks won't make selection. I'm not sure if this actually helps you though!

If you've been told to be 'reasonably confident' of selection it would be a good plan to be 'reasonably confident'!

That would suggest to me that you should plan for moving to S Devon in May.

I got reasonably confident in my AIB in Feb a few years ago and I was in the next entry at BRNC that May!

As far as I'm aware I got a "good pass" based on what I was told by the board president and my careers officer. Hopefully as long as its only the lower spectrum of marks that aren't accepted I should get a place. I was also told I would be unable to re-take AIB as I already had a decent mark. I guess I already knew that I had done okay at AIB and was mainly panicking that for whatever reason the selection board would decide to limit warfare officer intake this year. Half of it is the limbo that I've been in throughout this year-long process!
Thanks for taking the time to respond Spare_Rib!

If only they had said reasonably confident! I would already have put the down-payment on a flat and bought my uniform!
