    I was contacted around a week after my CD to inform them of my availability for POC.
    Two weeks after that they offered me the date of POC 10th March, that was back in mid December. Hope that helps.

    thanks for the response @green_beret0710 , very helpful. I had my CD mid December, so imagine the process has slowed up over the xmas period. It's a waiting game now

    Myself and a colleague are intending to make it onto the YO 2019 batch. Both of us have passed PJFT and waiting for interviews, mine is a couple of days, any last minute advice from those who have had a sift recently? Even just an idea of the questions would be appricated.
    Cheers gents

    Obviously there are the usual questions i.e. why do you want to join? why officer? role of an officer etc.
    They will also ask for examples of leadership experience and morale courage, at least mine did, similar to the questions asked on the OAQ.
    You will be asked whether you think you could take a life.
    They might also ask you for the definition of leadership/management.
    Also it would help to be up to date with current affairs, where the Navy is deployed at the moment and why, as well as knowledge of your training pipeline as they will expect you to know a phase by phase breakdown of YO training.

    Other than that, just be confident and be yourself, best of luck mate.

    Extra points can be earned for showing a wide interest in the RN activities such as fishery disputes in the channel, acknowledging submarines are operating around the globe secretly and also the recent events of Gavin Williamson giving the go ahead with RN support against migrants crossing to the UK illegally (I believe its HMS Mersey)
