Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    Hi everyone,

    I've recently applied to the RAF as a pilot, which is an officer level role. I've soon got my medical and I'm slightly worried as I used to suffer from migraines at age 13/14 and I'm now 20... Will this affect my application? Also, does anyone know the full medical test given? Some say they take hair samples and others say a urine sample and some say neither tests are done.

    Any help would be great! Thanks ☺️

    Theres a thread on here about someone already going trhough the process and he updates it. Try looking for it.

    Just remember the army code you must repeat to every fellow serviceman and woman. "Strength and Honour" Strength and Honour
