Hello,

I have been given an OASC date for next month and have confirmed it on the portal.

I have had no email about the day as of yet and is now in less than 3 weeks. I have tried to contact my recruiter but I have had no response.

Is anyone else in the same position?

What branch are you going for?

The only experience I have of OASC's is having 3 cancelled.

Personnel. What branch have you applied too?

Did you receive an email before all 3 got cancelled about the day itself?

It shows on your portal that you have accepted and the first time round, (this time last year) I was sent the ESSENTIAL INFORMATION FOR CANDIDATES document, which contains all you need to know.

That’s what I didn’t receive... I’ll try and give the AFCO a call again on Monday.

Thank you

Ellenw7,

Fantastic to hear you have an OASC date. Best port of call is the AFCO. I was booked for OASC at the beginning of Feb 2021 but was cancelled; unfortunate but understandable.

If you don’t mind me asking, when did your application first go in?

Let us know how you get on at OASC!

Thank you! I applied back in April 2020. I’m going to call AFCO again today and if I don’t hear anything back I might email RAF Cranwell as they’re the ones that organise our OASC date.

Sorry to hear yours was cancelled, hopefully you’ll get booked on very soon. When did you first apply?

I got absolutely nothing on my portal.

So I asked my recruiter and they said I should have been sent a confirmation email where there’s a summary form that you need to fill out two weeks before OASC

Hi Ellenw7,

If you don’t mind me asking, what was the wait between filter interview and OASC date? I’m now just waiting for a date after passing my interview last week and hoping it’ll be fairly quick as I’m going for Air Ops Control officer and know that this is something they’re desperate to get through.

Thank you and good luck for OASC.

Hi,

Have you passed your fitness and medical first? As you have to do that before OASC. It took 9 months from my filter interview to OASC.

Hope this helps!


Thank you ☺️

I’m already serving so fitness and medical is all current. Hopefully not having to wait 9 months for a date.

Hi Ellen

Have you had your board yet? How did it go and have you got any hints or tips for us?

Thanks in advance.
