    Hi,
    I've recently passed my AIB and my final aircrew medical examination. I would like to keep anyone who knows opinion on my chances of selection into the November entry.
    As far as I'm aware (and they have been very vague in telling me the results), my FAT score was around the 120 mark, and my AIB pass slightly above average.
    Any thoughts/information or past experiences would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    In a nutshell;

    - hundreds if not thousands of applicants. Actual slots probably only just reaching double figures. You can do the maths.

    (FAT score and AIB pass are only small parts of the application, as you well know, so quoting them alone is largely useless.)

    Well I had a letter from the AIB telling me selection was based upon AIB score, FATs and then age.
    I am only 18 which as far as I'm aware is very desirable at the minute, is anyone aware how many applicants get through to final selection?

    I'm off to OASC for selection as a pilot in August. As far as I'm aware, the RAF choose based on a consistent high performance across all areas. 120 is above the RAF competitive score at the moment which is 112, although when I sat the tests last year it was 125.

    Thats a perfectly acceptable score, but you've still got to perform across the board.

    If you haven't got your answer yet... Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth. RN equivalent of Army's Sandhurst and RAF's Cranwell.

    I guess I just have to wait and see for selection, I've been told to be reasonably optimistic so I guess that's all I can do

    Yes you have been told. You were told by a Naval Recruiter on Navy-Net in fact, so why are you still asking this question?

    No, but this is like going to the doctors about a problem and then getting a second opinion from the guy at the newsagents...
