Am down there next wk for PRMC and i am bricking it hopefully it'll be ok when all together doing the tests but i am scared of failing.
how many times are you allowed to take the prmc before you are told not to bother again?
I asked this at the careers office souly out of interest and not because i think oh its ok to fail it because i can try again and the officer didn't let me finish my sentance and took it the wrong way and said "im not going to answer that, and its obvious your not confident enough.. blah blah blah"
Holy thread resurrection, that chap!
The things to bear in mind are that unless you are in full time employment in a well-paid job & accept that most RMR units only have one Recruit Troop per year, then it's not necessarily quicker, more convenient or any easier to gain your Green beret.
The average reservist takes between 18-24 months to pass out, unlike a regular who gets paid daily to train & who's full time job is to be a recruit- a reservist has to maintain their fitness in their own time, completes most exercises over evenings, weekends & holidays, has the distractions of home & family, possibly has to juggle the hours with their full time job & faces being back-trooped by a year rather than a fortnight if he cannot make a couple of weekends.
In a lot of respects, particularly self discipline, being a reservist can be mentally more difficult. After a hard day at work, the last thing you feel like is a phys workout in the evening or after a difficult week - a weekend outdoors in the pouring rain.
