Completed my selection at ADSC Pirbright last week.

Passed with an 'A' grade and a job offer for the Paras, so well chuffed.
Got a BARB score of 66 and a 1.5 mile run time of 8mins 27secs, so very happy with that.

Was told I could be loaded on to a PRAC for the 1th March but still not heard back from them and am doing a lot of chasing up, so may have to wait a little longer. Was told I may be able to get to ITC for May at the earliest, though June is more likely, and September at the latest.

Just gotta keep up the fitness work.

Cheers, mate.

Passed PRAC last week (11th-13th March) so am almost ready to go now.

Provisional job offer accepted and have been loaded on to the 22nd June intake.

Just a few little hurdles to jump before the job offer is concrete and I can then hand my notice in at my current employer (GP records, that sort of thing) - it's all finally gathering a little pace.
