I'm currently in the process of joining as a student radiographer. i have loads of questions but my recruitment officer isnt being very help full.
if anyone could answer some/all that would be very helpful.


1. Was my cognitive test high enough for the role I want or will I need to improve at assessment?

2. During the briefing the speaker mentioned that some roles are being over subscribed and so entry is very hard. Is radiography one of these roles?

3. At assessment will I have to do any specialist test or extra interviews?

4. Between basic training and starting my degree what will I do?

5. When studying my degree where will I live (on a base or in student accommodation)?

6. While studying what will me salary be (still training wage or private wage)?

7. What will I do on week days when not a university and during university holidays?

8. On completion of my degree will I be able to attend the graduation?

9. Which units am I able to be assigned to (will I know which unit I will be working with before I start my degree)?

10. Is my return of service any longer because of studying the degree?

11. What would a typical day for me be as a radiographer in the army?

12. How quickly can I be deployed on operation?

13. Where can going on operation take me (does the army have field hospitals everywhere they are working, when doing humanitarian/aid work will my role be required)?

14. How often can I deploy on operation for and how long do they usually last?

i have also been told i need to attend AMS RIC (Regimental Insight Course) but have not been given any information. Will i be assessed at this insight course? if so what on?

TIA

A lot of what you are asking on postings, deployments, format of the assessment, Terms of Service etc can be found on the British Army Recruitment website. Have a look at that and then go back to your recruiter to show that you have done some research and just ask for clarification on what you have found. For the rest, especially your test results, that will have to come from the AFCO.

None of what I am asking is in the website for student radiographer. On the radiography role on the recruitment website it is very basic. I have scrolled through google to try find answers to my questions but can not. My recruiter told me to email him my questions, which I did and he has now told me I also need to attend the AMS RIC where they will answer those question, but hasn’t told me anything else about these days such as if I will also be assessed there so I can’t start preparing. I also have my assessment centre day 1 month before the AMS RIC and at the assessment centre in the interview I am meant to talk about all the thing I have questions about
