    I'm going for a sixth form scholarship with the RAF and I had my presentation last Wednesday. They told us that we needed to have our interviews by the end of September and so I found out on Thursday that mine would be on Monday (tomorrow).
    So, basically, I've just spent the weekend and thursday evening cramming (I have cadets on friday, so no work done then )
    How much do you need to know? How long did everyone else have to prepare and do you think they'll be a bit more lenient on the RAF knowledge part?
    Thanks

    There's an amazing function in this forum, makes finding things -like answers- really simple and quick. It's called SEARCH.

    As this question has been asked many thousands of times before, I suggest you get acquainted.

    Four days isn't much, but more than enough if you prepare sensibly.

    Funnily enough, being a wonderful and advanced human, I had already discovered the 'search' concept and read extensively. I thank you for your sarcasm, however, I could find nothing related to time periods given to prepare for filter interviews, which was the main purpose of creating this thread.

    If it wasn't possible to do in 4 days, you wouldn't be given 4 days.

    An interview where they ask for knowledge is not a test of the knowledge itself, but a test of how you react when you come to the end of your knowledge. As long as you're prepared to say "I don't know, but I know how to find out" then you'll pass*.



    *assuming you don't say that to questions like "where do you go to school?".

    With the greatest respect Athene but being snappy toward drewski for a harsh reply to a silly question is not an attitude you should keep whilst trying to apply for the RAF. Conduct yourself well for your interview and your life in general and you will reap the rewards. As for the having only four days that isn't ideal and I don't envy you but as drewski stated use the search function the amount of information on offer on this website is superb. Good luck and I wish you all the best

    I had 4 days between my P2 presentation and my filter. It's doable, more than doable but of course I knew the filter was coming up soon so I had started revising (lightly, I was still doing A-levels at the time) before the P2.

    If I can do it, anyone can.
