When does the interview normally take place?

I've asked my AFCO, but no response yet - it is the weekend, so obviously no answer. But what sort of time frame did it take you guys to go through the initial stuff? I've yet to sit the recruitment test (will be doing it on the 2nd March, so base it off that if it helps)

As I'm hoping to be an officer, how long does it take until AIB as well? I hear the soup is really good ;)

But seriously, how long does it take? I'm in no rush, as I'm only in the first year of 6th Form, but I'd like to get through things fast enough to be able to start BRNC within a couple of months of finishing school.

Finally, I know that what job you choose has an affect on how fast you can get it, so what can I expect for a Warfare Officer? Ages, or a bit quicker? It says "High priority" on the RN website, so I'm hoping I can get in fairly quickly.

Edit: acquaintance who's joining as a rating claims I'll have to go to Raleigh first and then BRNC. Is she right? I don't think so, but you guys know better than the both of us.

Raleigh for actual training? Or for a guided walk around sort of thing? Raleigh is Phase 1 for ratings not officers, you won't get trained there.

Generally it's usually a couple of weeks from submitting an application to sitting the recruit test. The medical depends on your circumstances but once you get your eyetest & medical forms completed and returned it's about 2-4 weeks for the triage call, same again for the medical. After passing the medical, for Officers it's 28 days to take & pass PJFT. The pre AIB interview (Sift, or whatever it's called this week) should be wirhin a month, AIB likewise after the interview. Entry, if you pass AIB at a high enough grade, is usually the following term unless you want to defer.

Your rating acquaintance has her wires crossed. It's possible Officer candidates may visit various places for potential officer acquaints, but Raleigh isn't an obvious choice for a.potential Warfare Officer, so far as I'm currently aware. (Happy to be corrected).

Thanks for the help. I thought the same, Twids - that's why I asked. Her wording made it seem like I would have to do the 10 weeks at Raleigh, then the 28 or whatever number you choose to believe at BRNC.

Guessing you can delay the PJFT, because while I'm working on it, I don't think I'd be able to pass it comfortably even in a couple of month time. Maybe I can make progress faster than I think, but I guess I'll see if I get to that bit.

So interviews are definitely after the test, not at the same time? Sounds good.

And no one has yet mentioned my name and soup reference :(

Do not accept the pee and tomato soup, especially if the steward comes in and says "Hands up all those who want soup."

If you don't like pee, don't ever eat soup in the Wardroom.
and that's from an ex cooky boy, long time since he was a boy though?

nothing wrong with aiming high, but I would keep those aspirations to your self. The boys I've seen rise to Admiral are a very different and special breed?
good luck.
