Hello its Niall again :)
Im only 55kgs and 16 almost 17 years old.
Is it true that there is no minimum weight anymore and its just you have to pass a BMI text?

its defo 60kgs *text deleted* im only 61kgs and they said i need to put some on. u can apply but on your medical u will get weighed and if *text deleted* under u will probs have to wait something like 3-6 months (i think) to apply again and u get weighed i think like second day of training. best off putting it on before your medical, but does take a while for all your paper work to go though.

And you have to put your weight on your application form,
so either you tell the truth and they'll say put some weight on and come back,
or you can lie about it and they'll find out at the medical,
so yeah,
best to put it on now.

^^ whats your sig from? *text deleted* i like it

anyway, best thing to do is just eat as much as you can mate, i was 64kg at my medical and they told me to put more on because you will lose alot in training, im about 72kg now but i think its just muscle

64 at 5.7 or 8 i dont bloody know. Think about it, 102lbs of backpack for 30 miles is almost heavier than you, PLUS you'll lose weight in training.
