How about you have a look at the RAF Careers website? Read it all, then come back. It'll explain a lot. And as it says, if you're interested in applying, contact your AFCO

Have a read back to the explanation about applying for 6FS, and the things you have to do to meet the deadline!

One job; that of an RAF officer!

You can specify a number of branches; I think 6; you'd be interested in.

Should you really be applying for a job you don't know much about? How much research have you done?
Yes it is six - or at least there's space on the form for six branches.

However...given that the "standard" number of branch selections is three (and thinking about the amount of time available in an interview to quiz candidates on said choices) is it worth putting down six selections?

Curiosity that's all - settled on my three (but I must confess that virtually all of the available branches to me are all interesting).

Now all I've got to do is fill out the damn forms - seems like there's thousands of them (bit like Zulus in fact - oh God, now I'm showing my age! ). Speaking of application forms, how does someone who's been in the RAF ranks for over 10 years answer that marketing question? It's on the "standard" application form (used for all ranks and services - don't have it to hand sorry). Thoughts comments etc., all welcome!! :confused:

Dammit Sublime, I want one too!! Someone report me!

I only put down one branch, the one I was interested in. Of course, they asked why I hadn't put anything else down and I said because that year, if they offered me another "job"(!) which wasn't my first choice, I would have turned it down and reapplied the next year with more branches.

How long does it take to get your OASC dates? Do they have to get your medical records and references first?

Just so I understand where your coming from here, The reason you would re apply with more branch choices for next year, that to try and avoid something you wouldnt be interested in?

On a side note, Bar stewarding College, after going to the open day to enroll and talk to the subject tuter, they arnt bloody there. Told they would give me a call back to arange it all, thats two days later so I guess I will have to sort it all myself tomorrow (nothing new is it) and the course starts next week as well, so cutting it fine thats for sure.

Just doing my first AS exams... how ***** they are... Anyway back on topic, anyone know anything else on the asthma/ inhaler thing? I remember Steve was going to try a specialist doctor to see what happens, anyone know what became of that?

Bloody annoying having the cloud of that hanging over me, why cant they test and tell you before you join....

hiya

Ive got my doc appointment next thursday, just to have a chat with her about what happened to me etc then gather up all the relevant info and pass it on to a wing commander at Halton who is helping me out. Took a while to get this docs appointment, but finally got it. Shall let you know more about the subject when i know

Just wanted to know if it's commonplace to receive feedback immediately following your filter interview? Some people's experiences seem to indicate it is, whilst others say they didn't hear anything until a letter arrived from Cranwell (that was certainly my experience).

Is there a common approach to this, or does it differ depending on the ACO you visit?

after my filter interview I was debriefed on my preformance and told if I had passed to cranwell. Maybe it does depend on afco.

Is it a disadvantage to just put one branch down? There's really no equivalent/alternative role within the RAF that I could consider.

Steve, I'd be really interested to know the detail of the process involved in a medical review. Could you send me a pm when you've been? There're a few questions I'd like to ask, but they'd probably be mind-blowingly boring to others who post here?
