    Yeah cheers, think I'll be using the next few months wisely, as I had a look at the quadratic equations etc earlier.... YIKES! My brain needs refreshing seeing as I've had no need to use algebra since GCSE. Thanks for the heads up Waybigal !! Also, in the specialist interview there's a group discussion, I was wandering what kind of topics you were given to discuss?

    Oooh there's an interview for the DV form. didn't know that..can you fail it??

    In fairness, they don't tell you much about it.

    I got past OASC before I was told [by someone who had just gone through it] that it existed. They don't tell you about it on any official literature.

    Oh well, if it needs to be done. Would have been nice if the AFCO had mentioned the prospect of another interview when they handed the form to me. I'm guessing you're not allowed to talk about what kind of questions they'll ask, and how you can fail it?? Would be a shame to fail especially if someone had already passed the Specialist Interview.

    Well, I've never been told I'm not allowed to say anything, but the fact that you can never find anything about it - despite what must have been thousands of people going through it - suggests it's not the done thing.

    Look up the defence vetting agency (DVA), it's reasonably clear what it's all about on there. You need to look for details of the developed vetting interview

    They don't half make a day of it. Better buy that second packet of custard creams then.
    As long as you're honest to them about everything then you can't be caught on any anything, would you say?

    Porn ? But I'm a lady... (it's clearly already organised ).

    Is anyone else here starting Aug 30?

    Just had a call from the DV people. Some missing bits on my application (doh!). Custard creams? That sounds like a bribe. I'm guna up the ante and buy some bourbons.

    +1,

    I also start at Halton on 17th March, was told in July when I passed my fitness test. I would have hoped not to have had to wait this long.

    Can't wait! Going in as an IT Tech. I hope I get through the final interview, would hate to blow it all so near the end.

    a lot of the trades had closed off when I took my ast.

    ICT technician was the only engineering trade available and there was not much choice in the other areas.

    hi guys!

    i think my RT will be the same time as you (17th March) but i will be there 2 weeks prior, being a female i have to do the two weeks in advance to RT. so although i wont be in your flight i will probably see you around and be on the same graduation :-)

    WLY- as IT technician where is your trade training?
