Some will have noticed there has been a significant drop in those attending PRMCs, the the extent two courses have already been cancelled and the candidates merged onto another course.
At present course capacity appears to be less than 50% and this is occuring at a time when the pass rate on PRMC is nearer 70% than the previous 50% average - with the realignment and ongoing review of criteria pass/fail elements. Recruit Troops have not yet been cancelled....but watch this space.
There is a natural tail-off after the initial 'January rush' often, in part, attributed to those mamoptingking resolutions and those opting out of 6th Form or Uni after their first term didn't go as planned.
We usually see an increase after Easter as people plan ahead, after the break, heading into exams/finals in Year 11, 13 and those graduating and again after the exams in June, increasing toward September after their Summer Hols.
It would therefore be interesting to get a snapshot of those actually 'in the pipeline' as compared to previous years.

Hello all. I work in a military and outdoors shop during the day and understand how much it can cost to get all the gear you need for recruit training. I spoke to my boss and asked if I could set up a discount code for the lads on the forum he said he would allow a 10% discount. I have spoken to admin and they've agreed for a trial to be run and feed back to be given to see if it is a mutual success. The site is contactleft.co.uk and the discount code it :RMUK1. Hope you find this helps
