    Hello all,

    I do hope you're well.

    I have applied for the 2017 Sandhurst Scholarship Competition and today received an email regarding the upcoming medical examination.

    If anyone has ever had an army medical examination, or knows anyone who has, I would appreciate their help in answering a question I have.

    Are there any fitness tests at all involved? I am not yet at the required level of fitness and am a little worried that I will be asked to do press ups, sit ups, running etc.

    I should be okay for a bit of running but I do please need to know if I'll be required to do anything else so that I am prepared and that nothing is unexpected.

    Thank you very much,

    I'm sorry to hear that you were unsuccessful. How many press ups and sit ups did they ask you to do?
    Will you try again?

    Does anyone know how many times you can attempt the medical, if the issue is one that can be fixed?

    not completely related as I'm applying for the raf, but during my medical I was asked to perform some press ups. the most you will need to do is around 5, the doctor that assessed me said it was just to check that your arms and joints move in the correct way. so as long as you can do a couple you will be fine, at the end of the day its a medical examination not a fitness test.
