    No need for shirt and tie. I just wore jeans, a casual t-shirt and some clean white trainers. Its no biggy mate. Your not there to impress anyone so just wear casual.

    What to wear for R.T in the morning?

    Hi lads. Done a search of 16 pages and still no answer. Will I look a plum in shiny shoes and suit or do I just wear jeans and a smart shirt with shoes?
    (It's psychometric test)

    Cheers:blink1:

    When I did mine I turned up in smart clothes, shirt, tie, polished shoes, etc.
    There were a few who were ex forces there that day joining various branches and they all turned up dressed the same.
    There was one lad who had scruffy jeans, a few earrings and a baseball cap.
    Guess who looked a plum!!

    I don't personally think it matters much,
    obviously if you wear a suit it'll make a good first impression,
    but at the end of the day you are doing a test,
    so you are best to wear whatever you feel comfortable in,
    I wore jeans, t shirt and shoes,
    as it's what I'm comfortable in,
    most people wore the same.

    good shout. you dont have to wear a suit, can go down in whatever you feel comfortable in, but its all gives a good impression doesnt it.

    As ninja has said aswell, it's good to getting used to wearing one because at POC and AIB you'll be required to wear one when not doing phys.

    i'm awaiting a prmc myself, and thus far for all formal things ive been smartly dressed, psychometric testing - shirt, tie, trousers and shoes, same for medical, for my interview i wore a full suit, obviously a suit was not required for my pjft, but for prmc i shall also be wearing a full suit. its better to be over dressed than under dressed.

    if anyone turns up to an afco in traksuits and trainers it usaully makes me think theyre louts who cant be bothered to make an effort, god knows what the staff think.

    in short, trackies = :eek:h: idiot.
