    The PTI’s smashed us exceptionally hard on bottom field before the endurance
    Luckily all of us on endurance made it to the end

    Get what you're saying but I do think people forget about the peripheral Phys aspects.

    I've seen guys get as far as week 26 of training, quit, then later reapply and fail PRMC because they underestimated it.

    From previous PRMC results the Bottom field and EC have far fewer fails recently compared to the tests on day 1. Maybe the PRMC staff are ramping up the physical side of day 2??

    Every single person I have had the pleasure to help, has underestimated how difficult a PRMC will be. Military PTI’s are absolutely fantastic at testing people’s mental strength through the medium of physical training!! Introduce cold, wet, different environments, lack of sleep, nerves, pressure and loud shouty shouty! And it can be disorienting and severely uncomfortable!! This puts you massively on the back foot!

    The secret? Prepare specifically and try and expose yourself to all of the above!

    You don't have to go back that far to see that part of the EC element of the PRMC used to be the Hare and Hounds for around 500 metres, followed by a four mile run back to CTC. Guys were failed when they were in sight of the finish. They then had to spend a night out on the bottom field regardless of the weather. Now that's harder than what you guys achieved!

    However, well done and good luck with RT. You'll need it!

    Plus a sub level 11 bleep test meant an instant fail and a return visit to the platform.

    Thank you very much, looking forward to it!

    By the sounds of it was a lot harder back then. I would of really struggled with four miler back to CTC. I'm just stating that personally i found this PRMC hard and people on course had mentioned certain aspects such as the determination test was a lot harder this time round. It might have been, it may not have been...

    I can't say much as it was my first time doing it, however I may have struggled but it gave me a great insight to where recruit training will be held and what it would be like. I really enjoyed it and can't wait for recruit training.

    I was on this one, was my 2nd attempt. Was a pretty good prmc, bottom field was harder than last time but with that said i had better mental strength this time, brtter confidence and a real good group of lads around me to carry each other through. A question for ninja, there was new afcos watching parts of thursday and thy recorded parts of the endurance course, just wondering where i could find this footage, would love to watch us being smashed straight into the stream just before the sheep dip
