As selection for the 2020 Batch is nearly complete, with only the FSB to go it now seems right to start a thread for next year's Batch as questions are now being asked by potential candidates.

Good luck to you all.

I'm aiming for this batch - heading into my last year of Uni.

Just one question - does anyone know whether potential officer visits still take place?

Can I just ask on average how many direct entry 18-19 year olds you would find in a YO batch, cheers.

Also aiming for this Batch, just passed my VAIB recently for scholarship but the 2021 Batch is my aim over the scholarship. Will have to redo a few things to keep them from expiring.

Possibly 3 0r 4
What are the things that make these 3 or 4 stand out so much that they are picked straight after sixth form/college. Is it academics or other types of attributes that get them selected.

Many thanks.

The POC and AIB assess many facets of a candidate's personality and abilities. Academic potential is just one of many.

If you score highly in both assessments you will be selected, regardless of age.

I am not a military man, but in my experience the best teams always have a good mix of age and background and I would not be surprised if the Corps look to have a spectrum of age and life skills in the batch.

Someone told me the intake was January, was gutted when I realised it's actually September! Hopefully see you all there!

All the best to everyone going for the Batch. There is a lot of help on this forum, so ask away, whether you are interested in a place yourself, or are a parent or partner. Good luck to you all!
