    YO 2021 Batch

    What are the things that make these 3 or 4 stand out so much that they are picked straight after sixth form/college. Is it academics or other types of attributes that get them selected. Many thanks.

    Sixth form scholarship and guest of officers in the wardroom

This gives you a £1050 a year, plus a chance to experience life as a Royal Marine, for example, as a guest of officers in the wardroom" Is this scholarship...

    Potential Officer Advice 2021

    I plan on applying for RM as a young officerin year 12 to join after sixth form (so 2022) as well as applying for uni's so if I don't get in (likely) I can try again after uni! I'd suggest too as then all your eggs are not in one basket.

    Reserve before Regular?

    Yes and as I tried to make clear this is not how I see it, I specifically said I would not be joining for experience but to be part of a fully functioning force which is how I see the RMR. Thank you though for the advice, and I am going to apply for university's so as to not put all my eggs in...

    Pathfinders

    Aren't they all HALO/HAHO trained soon after they pass the 6 weeks and do the HALO/HAHO course, it's their speciality isn't it? I may be wrong!

    Very valid example:D Do recruits have a general consensus to one? (Although they're obviously all very very hard)

    Commando Tests

    Hello, Does anyone who has passed know which are considered the harder (I'm aware they're all hard) commando tests and if many tend to fail (OR and YO), or anything else you have to say on them? Any info greatly appreciated, Thanks!

    Why did the RM used to use the USMC fitness test as the basic entry bar?

    I'm sorry for the inquiry, just found it interesting and was hoping someone would know more on the topic as it had me confused but nevermind.:)

    Why did the RM used to use the USMC fitness test as the basic entry bar?

    It doesn't matter a single bit as it was over 30 years ago, I was just more interested as to why they did this so just a general query but sorry for asking:)

    Why did the RM used to use the USMC fitness test as the basic entry bar?

    Do you know why they choose to do this? I always assumed it would be more likely the USMC copying the RM fitness testing..

    Why did the RM used to use the USMC fitness test as the basic entry bar?

    Yes I am aware we no longer do... I wasn't asking if we do nowadays, I was asking if anyone knows as to why during the late 80s we did?

    Why did the RM used to use the USMC fitness test as the basic entry bar?

    Just a query as I was watching a documentary and just wondered, for at least officers, why the RM used to use the USMC Basic Fitness test to assess new officers (and maybe recruits I'm not too sure) when they got to Lymphstone? Any info appreciated, Thanks!

    Reserve before Regular?

    I am still not sure wether I'll attempt as enlisted or officer, but either way I am doing my A-Levels. I cannot wait to attempt to join the RM, so would anyone recommend joining the RMR in the meantime? And also the affect (if any) this has on my application for the Regulars? And no I am not...
