Hello,

I'm new here, I was wondering if anyone can help? I'm currently on the medical stage to cleared, once my GP has provided my medical records.
I'm assuming after that would be the interview stage. I know due to the covid-19 pandemic, alot of application process has been changed or cancelled. I applied at the end of February, I was suppose to sit RT end of March but obviously it got cancelled and they based it on my education.
I'm wondering if anyone's has passed their interview stage and knows how long they would have to wait till they get to HMS Raleigh. I have been doing my best to keep up with the fitness and my other concern is the swimming test? Before the lockdown I paid for swimming lessons to practice as I'm not a confident swimmer, now in lockdown can't practice. Also uncertain when things will go back to normal for me resume my swimming lessons. I was told by my careers advisor that once my medical has been cleared and if I pass my interview, the psyical medical, the prmc would done at hms Raleigh but wasn't told how long it would take to get to HMS Raleigh, I know basic training is still going on ATM but how long do you normally wait from interview stage to HMS Raleigh? I wanted enough time to prepare but with lockdown it's made very difficult to prepare for the swimming test Can anyone help? Thank you.

All this above and more has been mentioned. Use the search box in the top right hand corner and see what comes up.

For everything else, the RN is understandable and we have coaching and mentoring in RAL to help people that are struggling. If you want to keep up your phys, google Royal Navy 8 week training plan and follow that.

If you have any specific questions about your entry dates (it has so many variables that no one could give you a straight answer), contact your AFCO. Have you got their number/email address?

Maybe consider delaying your application until fully happy with all elements of Raleigh?

I would be contemplating this.

Good luck anyway.

I have been thinking about that, I never imagined something like the pandemic would happen. Everything I have planned , I'm sure like alot of people have been put on delay. If didn't happen I wouldn't be worrying about this.

Thank you for your reply.

Nobody expected it. Hence why everyone wants answers to questions that can't be answered with any accuracy!!!

I'm sure you're AFCO will keep you updated on how long and what you have coming up regarding interview and intake day etc.. You will find they are probably getting daily updates on how the recruitment process will be conducted, so be patient with it.

If you are that interested in joining the Navy and its what you really want it should not matter how long the process takes.
The longer the recruitment process is the more time it gives you to get mentally prepared for raleigh, and physical prepared for all aspects.
Regards to swimming.. If you don't sink when in the pool you have pretty much passed raleighs swim test.

Good luck with the process and stay patient
