I attended OASC last week and was wondering how long it took people to find out if they had passed/failed? I'm aware it does depend on what branch you have applied for. FYI, I'm applying for WSOp.

What was it like? There's no fitness test now, right? Just a one day thing.

What did they cover in the interview?

Good luck on your results!

Yeah so it's just one day now and has been for well over a year. It's challenging but you do find yourself enjoying it.

I'm not sure how much you know of the day but here's a brief summary:

Group discussion - 3 x 5min topics.
Planning Ex - I think it was 25min to come up with your own plan and answer 10 questions on a scenario. Then come together as a group and make 1 plan to then put forward to the boarding officers.
Leaderless Ex - A socially distanced practical exercise which lasts 30min.
Individual Leads - 15min to assess, plan and brief the syndicate on a practical exercise that you will lead. (Don't worry if you don't complete it).
Interview - 12-15min interview. Basically you just showing your motivation for applying, what training you will undertake, first tours, what's expected of an Officer/SNCO, what secondary duties you may have, current RAF operations, Aircraft and bases.

I hope this helps and thank you!
