    Hi ,
    Got my medical at crapita coming up this Thursday. My bp is really low on the machine will they fail me on that? No other medical issues and I haven't had to declare anything at all so I'm hoping it's plain sailing but I've heard there a pain. Any help or tips please 😁

    Thanks

    Usually due to nerves your blood pressure is higher when they measure it in the medical.

    Do you have a medical condition that would cause low BP?
    Have you been to your doctors for advice?

    It is extremely important you are healthy for training and your further career in the RAF.

    Also, out of curiosity. How long were you waiting between your interview and getting your CAPITA date?
