    Have a drink? Jesus, I've just necked a bottle of Rioja! And right now my world is slightly blurred!

    Without this turning into a who’s better thread, does anyone know if the Paras have changed their 1.5 mile times from 9.40 yet? Or is this still to come?

    I'm not 100% sure but I think when my cousin went for his selection it was 10mins30secs

    The Army selection fitness standards, so far as I'm aware, are also reviewed regularly and altered as necessary. It maybe worth a browse on the Army website (if up to date) or an ask on Arrse to determine what the current pre entry standards actually are. They do fluctuate for a variety of reasons.

    It is still 9:40 (10:00 if under 18).

    Sorry, I posted my question into the wrong thread (I was on the wrong tab) and couldn't find a way to delete it so I deleted the text.

    Just did a quick practice to test the new times, and it is so much easier than the old pjft. Train with the incline so you can absolutely knock the new pjft out of the park.

    I was told I was going to have to do my PJFT as the old standards but the letter they have sent out to me says 10m30s. Either they haven't all been informed or it is expected of me to still be getting under 10minutes...if not a lot better!

    @its_meg regardless of the letter, you need to be giving a good impression, considering the uphill battle you'll be facing. 10:30 is a bloody jog to be honest. I run 1.5 mi at sub 9 and I'm not a runner by any stretch of the imagination.

    From what I gather, common sense would suggest the general consensus is that you should train to the <10 min run back on a 2 degree incline standard...just in case.

    Personal computer, or political correctness? Both apply, I suppose ;)

    Oh I wasn't suggesting I was aiming for a 'just' pass, was just saying what the letter stated. I am aiming for a lot less than that
