Morning troops, Bit of an odd one but I'm after some advice - I applied for RM officer aged 17 and have since undertaken 2 POCs. At my first I was a weak candidate with average scores across the board (9:30 return, 40 press, 10 pull). Quickly became apparent after bottom field I was the weakest candidate left and on the endurance course I was removed from the course just after VW triangle for failing to do some carries. I reapplied and had another POC this year, which I got a 9 month deferral from. I performed well on the first day and bottom field (8:24 return, 12 pull, 55 press and was at the front for most of bottom field) but I had a partner who was 15kg heavier than me for the carries and failed the fireman's carry on bottom field. when we got to the carries and drags on VW triangle I was in massive pain and had dropped significantly to the back (ie from literally being first to nearly being lapped by the other pairs), and I VW'd. What I'm basically after is opinions on if I should have another crack - the first time I failed I attributed my struggling with carries as being a by product of not being fit enough, but considering I was a strong performer in every aspect of my second POC (except carries, obviously) I'm now questioning if I will ever have the aptitude. It's been a few months since the failure and the feeling of wanting to reapply has grown since, but I don't want it to be all in vain. As a side note, can anyone confirm if you even get a third chance? I've heard it's a maximum of 2 at POC.
