Hi all, I’m looking for some very specific advice please in the hope someone is able to provide some answers! I’ll try to keep this brief. I passed the POC at the end of 2018, and passed AIB early this year. In final selection I was on the reserve list until the end of September and unfortunately wasn’t needed. My plan had always been to join as an Other Ranks should I not be chosen, and was told at the POC we were able to go down this route should we not be successful with the officers application. When it became apparent I wasn’t going to be selected, I asked my careers advisor to change my application to a Royal Marines Commando role. I have since been told that my POC is now out of date and, effectively, I have to reapply all over again (medical, eye test, PRMC etc). Having been in the system for 2 and a half years, and having waited most of this year for the final selection board/reserve list, I just feel dejected now I’m facing another 6 month wait. I was told at the POC my pass was valid for two years should I want to join as an other ranks, and this was echoed by 2 of my previous careers advisors, but I have now been passed to my third in as many weeks and been told I have all this to do again. This goes against everything I have been told previously so thought I’d check to see if this is firstly correct information and secondly if anyone else has had the same outcome. Thanks.
