Now that, makes much more sense
... so the individual problem that they went to all the hassle of removing is back?

Oh good, some common sense

My final interview came after the fitness test, kind of in a "final" fashion. I guess it might have changed, but I don't know why it would. The other stuff looks like an odd order to me too, it seems you go into the hangar, then back into the exercise room, then back into the hangar again?

Also, I've got blisters on both feet. Oops!

That's the way it was when I did it back in the mists of time. Group chat first, then off for the leaderless, back for the paper tests, then in for the command tasks.

The hangar's a few yards away, it's not much of a walk

You know thinking about it, you could be right. I can remember walking over that skywalk more the once in each direction. I'm still sure the final interview comes last though, since I remember talking about being knackered

Well, back in my day there was no fitness test, because we figured that you were probably smart enough to get fit before pitching up for training :rolleyes:

So I have no idea where that goes.

Im off to do my OASC selection on June 5th. Got a letter a few days from the RAF saying that there will be changes to the selection as of 1st May 2005. Firstly they say they need fitter people because too many people have not been fit enough to undertake IOT or get injured during it. Hence the candidated need to be able to meet the minimum pre-joining fitness test(PJFT). They are looking into fitness testing alot more now so just scraping the minimum might not really do you any favours considering the competetion you will be up against. The fitness test now consists of a bleep test as before, press up test and sit up test. All the required levels are detailed on the letter.

The second test which is new is the Individual Planning Test (situation analysis). The exercise consists of a period of private study in which you can read the setting and work a solution., followed by a short period of questioning by the Board staff about your solution. The main difference is that you carry out the task on your own and not in a group.


OASC is now split like this:

Part 1
Aptitude Tests
Medical
Interview
Review

Part 2
General Discussion
Leaderless Exercise
Group Planning Exercise
Individual Planning Exercise (situation analysis)
COmmand Situation Exercise
Final Interview
Fitness Test

Letter ends by saying the changes have been made to ensure that the RAF selection process is robust and enables candidates of the right quality to be identified.
i got that letter... you said it better than i did.

I remember getting injured on IOT, and in common with a few mates, it had sod all to do with fitness.... still, nice grasping at straws, OASC

3 years so far and no lapse yet. Just more ruddy determined as I'm sick to death of not being in! Although saying that I have no determination what so ever to get fit, well I do....ish. I will anyway I've just been more focusing on the paper based side to things.

And i'll be quizing you on the fitness stuff tomorrow too

For the motivation, in my case I gotten myself into the frame of mind that nothing else is of any interest.

I've tried the IT sector, where I did want to go, and never enjoyed it, So now its a case of following a dream and going for it (a little bit cheesy I guess :rolleyes: )
