Now then lads and lasses of the forum, I'm just looking for a bit of guidance and advice regarding my application. I'm 19, stuck in a job that is mind numbing and has no sense of achievement and have been training for the RM. With a lot of personal *text deleted* going on as of recent I'm wanting to get away from where I live currently as soon as possible by going through the application stages and eventually ending up at CTC and then hopefully beyond, but I don't want to apply to early and mess up on one of the stages then have a setback. Did a mock PJFT the other day and managed a pass by the skin of my teeth but I will be redoing it soon as I know i can do it faster because i ballsed up the treadmill speed first time round. Not tested the bleep test in long enough that it is worth mentioning and i reckon that right now I could pass the 3 body weight exercise tests but not with flying colours. I'm 6ft2 and have managed to lose a stone from 15 down to 14 so I'm within the BMI limits, as carrying less weight should make things easier right? Basically what I'm asking (in a long winded way I know) is should I put my application in now and then not be biting the career's advisers hand off when they try to push onto the next stages if I didn't feel I had trained enough by that point, or should I just hold on a bit while longer and just crack on through all the *text deleted* I'm putting on with now, continue 'extra phys' myself and the apply and be keen to go through the app stages as fast as possible. Sorry that this is such an essay lads but I need the advice, I know i could probably go to the AFCO but it's a bit of a trek and you lot are just as good i REckon! Cheers for reading.
