I daubt anyone will know the anser to this but i was just wondering how many 16 year olds have passed RT without being backtrooped?
Sounds like a stupid question but im just curious.

When I started RT we were told only 5% of 16 year olds finish RT, that was when your going for regular at lympstone. Dont know what it is for the part timers haha. Most 16 year olds are probably the fittest, but when it comes to getting cold and wet and missing home and stuff, i think thats were they get out. Ignore the figures, because if you can do it, you can do it. My advice, wait till your 18 only so you stand the best chance possible of finishing. Good luck whatever you choose to do.

You can apply at 15 and 9 months.
