    out of interest what do you 2 do for a job at the moment?
    Sorry for late reply, aint logged on all week. I have been working for a high street bank for 5 years, pretty dull TBH. It's very hard work for little personal achievement, every day you are on the go from open until close, your knackered at the end, get spoken to like a piece of **** and I have personally achieved nothing - very demoralising! I have chosen the RAF as a career because I am achieving things with my hard work (such as getting fit to get in, I have personally achieved something that my current job doesn't) How abou you CATFACE??

    Im teaching at the moment, after doing my degree I did a PGCE but I dont enjoy it, too much paperwork and politics.
    I was going to re-train as a personal trainer while I was waiting for my role to open in the RAF, just trying to save up the money to do the PT course

    Feeling very nervous but excited at the same time. Really hoping i pass, especially the maths :s Need a high score for my trade apparently. Fingers Crossed.

    Im gutted my AST has been put back but also relieved in a way so I have an extra week to revise!

    I passed my ast. Did really well! It wasnt too bad. Have my interview next week :-)

    good luck every one with your next stage. X

    You've been told what the School of PTIs expects of you as a minimum entry requirement, why would other people tell you anything different?
