If you're keen these are things you'd already know. The only way you can prepare for your medical is by cleaning your ears.

I apologise if you think I'm being rude but I really aren't. If you know what you need to do fitness wise then get to a higher standard than that. As I also said, you can't really prepare for a medical.

The medical isn't really something you can prepare for.

Just make sure you are in the bmi limits.

Fitness test you need to check and make sure you're aware of the requirements to pass.. then train every week to ensure you hit that pass rate.

Hello Callum, I also have scoliosis (very mild). I have recently just passed my medical (this year) just a little info before I go into detail.
You Should search 'RAF medical limits' in Google.

You will need xrays from your GP to prove that it doesn't affect you and will need to perform various movements to the Doc. The downside is that Yes it will affect your application. If you want any more info inbox me .

The medical is easy.

Height, weight, flexibility, eye sight and hearing tested. Nothing hard
