    Hey everyone! I came across this forum as I am waiting for dates for my vetting and was wondering if anyone had any advice and how they score you?

    I've heard you have to get 13.2 on the bleep test to at least get a 3 mark? :/

    If anyone has any advice on the interview as in what they ask you ect and what you do on the leadership aspect of the vetting I would be extremely grateful!
    Hey, yes they will look at your bleep test score. They rank everythig out of 4 (13.2 will get you 3/4).

    Interview is simple enough as long as you do your research and actually prepare for it.

    Leadership, you get given a sport (random out of 5) you must instruct. Looking at taking control, making it enjoyable etc..

    The interview is more about YOU...they want to find out want you're like as a person and your not just a robot and boring! Sell yourself as best you can....but don't be arrogant...find the fine line...

    Learn everything you can about Phase 1 (Basic Training) and Phase 2 (Cosford...12 module course).

    Soo basically, they give you a rank out of 4.

    If 40 people go for it. They were taking the top 16 people. So I got and overall score of 3/4 and the top 16 was 3.3 or higher

    So hopefully with no lung infection you should get a high enough score to be accepted :-).
