    I hope to be at OASC in November. In limbo awaiting a date at the moment. Going Air Traffic so I believe we jump the queue a little. What are you going for

    Going for WSOp, have you spoken to your AFCO to see when you are likely to get a date?

    I'm feeling okay, nervous about planning exercises to be honest! What about you?

    Literally just got off my oasc, don’t worry yourself too much, take a look at the practise exercises, but that’s just to give you an idea of the format, no point trying to religiously learn them, mistakes can and will be made on the planning ex, just be sure to admit your mistakes and the officers will understand, the leadership tasks are difficult however they aren’t looking for a completed task, just strong leadership potential. The two days are pretty chilled, just make sure your phys is tip top, because there are people who ace all the leadership and planning ex and interview, then get to the fitness (which is the last thing on the second day) and come unstuck.Feel free to fire questions at me as it’s still all fresh in my mind.

    Pretty much the same, I’m totally fine with SDT and exploring the different routes in planning, but doing this in front of a boarding officer and in a time constraint is a different scenario.

    I’m in for the 10th of December too - WSOp at the moment but may swap that for Intelligence as my number 1 choice. Still debating it!

    Good choices! I was really interested about the INT branch when I was at my Fam at Brize.
    How’s the prep coming on?

    I'm WSOP at the moment too, but Interloigence also looks good. Prep is going well, but nervous about planning exercises but that should be fine! You?

    Prep is OK, who knows if it’s enough! What famil visits have you had? I had one for engineering (not sure it’s for me) and got one for WSOp in a couple weeks. Don’t think they do them for Int due to the nature of the job

    I initially went WSOp, but I’m now going ATC and it’s a much better choice in my opinion
    Planning Ex’s seem to be what most people get hit up on. I’ve got about 25 which I keep going over. I’m going down the route of focusing on the calculations so I can make quick decisions. How’s the fitness? I’m trying to push for light blue so I’ve got a little bit of play on the day!

    Yeah you’ll only know when you’re there and doing it. I think I’m the most relaxed over OASC... CBAT was my most feared part! I went to Brize Norton on a potential officers day. Had a presentation from 2 Intelligence Guys! Obviously they didn’t go into details on ops or anything, but what they covered was great! Where are you going for WSOp?
