The stuff you get from OASC both in prep and whilst there say in bold letters that both the academic and medical standards are absoulutely rigid and there is no way round them - with good reason. Don't worry too much though - I failed English and had to retake but I got selected. Moral: You can alwa...

Amazon for the details -isbn etc - but don't buy from there cause they seem to have an inability to actually deliver anything published by HMSO, thus HMSO bookshop is good, number's on the main RAF page under the documents to order section.

A few months ago they changed the boards around, they went down for maintenence and came back in different places. 3/4 of the members haven't seemed to be able to find the way back and with no newbies there aren't any topics being generated to make it worthwhile comming on.

Hey dude, congrats, I thought PEdO was your 1st? or did they scrap that cause of the qualifications thing?

It can happen. Many people get a PC once in, although with the current state of things you ma be forced to beg your desk officer for one.
