Apologies @dolly , missed the alert. If the application is already underway and you've passed the PJFT, you should make the cut but chase your ACLO to get your career discussion cracked as soon as possible.

Good luck.

Not a problem, thank you for the reply Ninja! I passed the standard PJFT, did they also scrap the 2% incline for officers as well? As I completed mine without one and I saw on the RN website that officers must complete one with an incline, so I possibly might have to re-run? Thank you and all the best.

Ninja or other better informed adults will be along to give you sensible advice but I'll throw my threepence in anyway.

You're already in the recruitment 'loop' so you're not just walking through the door of an AFCO declaring an interest in the 2019 YO Batch. But POCs and AIBs are less frequent than PRMCs so the margins for injury or stumbling at a hurdle are slimmer.

Ultimately it's down to you to be mega-proactive and to excel at exceeding all criteria. As one detached from any official connection with Her Majesty's Corps of Royal Marines I'd say that if you want it enough, and you'll really need to want it, then go for it. Best of luck.
Thank you for the information! I've taken your advice and appreaciate the support, all the best, have a good new year!

The RN website is out of date. PJFT for RMOR & RMO is the same.

To stand any chance of getting on the Sep 19 batch you need to have your application registered on the system in the next couple of days. @Ninja_Stoker or @CHUB! will be able to give full advice but I am pretty sure you need to action this now!
It is worth pointing out that there is only one YO batch per annum, so if you are interested for the 2019 batch you have no time to lose. After that you will be looking at a September 2020 intake. Good luck!

My application is going off today. Can't wait to get the process started!

I think that it depends where you take the PJFT. Mine for instance was completed with a 2% incline and had to be completed under 10 minutes. Dont believe they have managed to get consistency from test to test just yet.

UPDATE:

Application officially switched to officer, just waiting on the next stage, I do not need to re-do the PJFT as like Ninja said it's the same across the board now apparently. Thanks for the help all. I'm not sure I need to do the SIFT interview either? Could someone enlighten? I was asked a few questions over the phone and they may have added my answers to my previous SIFT interview for regular commandos.

On the letter regarding the invite to POC it states you should bring your own boots, is this mandatory/beneficial?

I don't think it's mandatory as it hasn't been before hand. However, you can bring boots that you have worn in to prevent blistering and also practice running in boots before the actual POC so you have some experience in boots.

Beneficial, not mandatory.

You should only take your own boots if you have had the opportunity to wear them in and they meet the requirements laid out in the letter; heal blocks etc.

My lad used the pussers boots and passed OK.

Nice to meet you chaps. I’m hoping to join the 2019 batch as it’s my only chance (turning 26 in December). I’ve just passed my PJFT yesterday and looking to get on the POC as soon as possible. Is anyone else booked onto one coming up?

Likewise mate, in the same boat as you as I'll be 26 in November. Waiting on my date too at the moment. Some talk of dates in late March/mid April on here currently so expect we'll have one around then.

Last chance here too. I passed my career discussion in November, still have not got a POC date, should I be concerned?

The fact that you have done your medical and PJFT means you are all good for Sept 2019.
You need to speak to your ACLO and have the initial careers discussion at which point you need to discuss POC dates.

ACLO told me that the AIB only went back to work yesterday so to wait a week then chase up again. I am trying my best to be patient but I am also very aware that time is ticking.

Booked onto a POC starting 10th March, wondering if anybody else is on this? Could possibly get a group chat started for it?
