    Hi, this is my second account for this site (first was "BloodBank") but I really had to start a new one, as the other was kinda tainted by my apathy - never actually doing anything towards becoming a Royal Marines Officer (my goal) - leading me on a short tangent after college and before realising that it's all I've really wanted for the last 3 years of my life

    Anyway, this time round I'm putting my all into it, because I want it. So one of my colleagues convinced me to start an application for the Navy as a Warfare Officer, but I quickly hit the physical requirements and figured I should reach for the stars, so here I am - going to switch my application over asap and my Psychometric test is on 24.04.2012

    Sorry for the lengthy intro :bigsmile:

    See y'all around, anyway

    Welcome back!

    Best of luck with the application - at risk of teaching you to suck eggs, be aware the Recruiting Test scores for Officer have increased significantly: no-longer-validshowthread.php?t=3149[/url]

    My initial enquiries were Warfare Officer as well. As soon as I made the VA standard for RM though I made the switch...

    EDIT: Changed 'inquiries' to 'enquiries'. I hate the nuances of this language!

    Hmmm, must be some subliminal messaging on the DVD :laugh:

    Cheers guys and I'm halfway between thanking you, and cursing your name there, Ninja - but think I should be ok (fingers crossed) :eek:h:

    Utopia, what does VA stand for? If you'll excuse my ignorance

    VA - Visual Acuity. I was too blind for Warfare Officer (which is pretty bad) but perfect with my contacts or glasses. It was the unaided vision that did me in.

    I got laser surgery and now have better than 20.20. Wouldn't want to waste that staring at charts all day now would I? :biggrin:
