    Apologies if there is a thread about this, when searching I couldn't find anything🤔

    However, does anyone have any stories or anything they were not expecting when they attended their selection at Glencorse?

    I've been given my dates for the 12th of September up until the 14th

    Nope you just realize there was no need to worry when you look at some of the retards around you that have turned up with an attitude problem and are cheeky to the Directing Staff, those who haven't done any fitness training, those without the ability to work together and solve the simple team task, without even bothering to research the location, history, role or equipment of the regiment/corps that they plan on joining, without practicing their icebreaker or those that had a complete inability to stand up for two minutes and speak to people without sounding like they are autistic. The only unexpected challenge was the foot and a half of snow on the ground as we did our 1.5 Miler round and round the parade square because the usual route was to icy.

    Seriously though as long as you prepare properly, do your research, remain interested and respectful then you should fly through selection without any dramas or surprises. They won't throw random challenge in there if that's what you are worried about.

    Be fitter than the minimum standards and confident on your ice breaker and command tasks and you'll do just fine.Generally, the Army is struggling to recruit and retain people. Passing selection, or basic training for that matter isn't as hard as it once was.
