    Anyone any idea when the last RT start date is before summer leave?

    Thanks in advance.

    The one that traditionally has the highest fail rate?

    Usually a couple of weeks before summer leave, long enough to 'enjoy' foundation, then quit upon return from leave. Probably 22 or 29th July.

    Depending on age & prior experience of independent living, one of the early troops commencing AFTER a leave period usually has a significantly higher pass rate in relation to voluntary opt-outs.

    Thanks for the reply.

    If they have such a high fail rate then what makes them continue to run them that close to leave dates? Is the drop out rate really that bad?

    The conveyor belt has to keep on running. Otherwise potential recruits would face even longer delays.
