    I'm expecting to have to do everything that way anything less is a bonus! I'm most nervous about the bleep test; running isn't my strong point :-(

    On my email it says we don't have to do fs if you have the GCSEs though? Just practice hill sprints interval training for bleep test, and a endurance run every week

    Hi guys,

    Did my PRTC late april, make sure you take your GCSE certificates and you will be Functional skills exempt, which is nice. We got to go home a day early because of it to! Fitness test is easier than i expected, if you can do your 1.5 mile you will ace it!

    Think I'll mostly revise the RAF stations and aircraft as I did for my interview. Maybe a little of the functional skills just in case they don't accept my GCSEs

    You do the fitness test as soon as you arrive on the Wednesday afternoon. Its get off the coach, get changed in to PT kit. A lot people expected to get lunch before, you don't. Make sure you have something to eat a few hours before! After that PRTC is just make sure you listen and take in advise and instructions!

    How did i prepare for PRTC? The biggest part of the PRTC is the fitness test, made sure i could nail that. Do a bit of GCSE english and maths revision (BBC bitesize is good for it) because everyone does sits the CBAT tests.

    Okay sorry for the delay been working hatd, Do interval training and bot steady state runn, maybe practice the bleep test a few times. I got a 9.3 n was really close to being fine but missed the line. Still got through as was a narrow margin. Practice the turns. Gcse's do exempt you from doing key skills but you still have to do the tests. Dont give out any dates or times from hence forth. You won't be issued boots and eat before you get there! Pt straight away.

    Hi Sooty,
    Does the whole group run the bleep test at the same time? Or is it split into smaller groups or guys and girls?
    Thanks.
