    No letter for me. Panicking as ahhh I need more time
    for fitness!! Working out as hard and much as I can but no where near ready!

    I'm exactly the same. I was high 60s so imagine it's still a while away. Well I hope it is! I sacked off the training after the AC as I really didn't think it went well. Boy am I regretting that now! Just get the head down and train hard hard hard! I've invested in a PT to help me get to where I need to be fitness wise for it.

    I can't afford a PT at the moment but would love one. I'm trying hard, I have to shift at least a stone...two ideally....as well as getting fit so I'm just so cross with myself for not having faith in AC. I came out feeling like I had answered like a child!

  • No letter today, anyone else?




  • Didn't get mine yet. post is late I hope

    I wonder if they have just selected a certain number of candidates at random, across a range of AC scores as there doesn't seem to be any pattern to those who have received letters so far.

    Could it be alphabetical on surname or by your postcode?

    No idea... I'm from Belfast so would have thought if it was based on post code I'd be one of the first.

    Although middle of the alphabet with my surname so that would make sense.

    Im middle of alphabet too and middle of postcode numbers so cant help with either!!

    I wonder if anyone who received the letters could shed a little light on it for us.

    Oooo that would be helpful if they could!!!




  • My surname and first name would be middle of the alphabet, score was high 60s and live in North Down and seem to be the first batch to have received the letter. Don't know if this helps anyone at all. Seems to be random.

    Damn that blows a hole in the postcode and surname theory.

    At the minute it does just seem to be random.




  • What about if they are going by UID numbers???




  • What about if they are going by UID numbers???

    Could be, although I applied quite early the day it opened, but I'm sure hundreds of others did aswell.




  • Us two, 2 super sleuths!!!!




  • Hi all. Been watching in back round a while. I got 60-70s on AC. My letter didn't arrive this morning as postman just been.




  • Turns out I did get the letter on Saturday presumably. Someone failed to mention it '-'. I'm low 70's. Could be as simple as how many envelopes they can get through in a day.

    It's how they are deciding who gets letters first that I'm confused about.

    There has to be a system surely, what have we forgot about?
    AC date? Location?

    It could be UID number, but we have no way of finding that out.

    It could be merit order and by a huge coincidence all the top scorers are posting on here and they just haven't got down to us.

    Can you remember the lowest AC score who received the letter?




  • I think there was a 60-70 score but defo not a 55-60 score yet!

    Yeah I had a look through there now and they are all top scores, a few in 60-70 but I'd assume they are mid to high 60's.

    We just need to sit tight and hopefully we will hear soon enough, we are in the same bracket but just as the lower end.

    Could have been several hundred letters sent out just to ensure that they can fill the first few squads, considering there will be PCA fails/resits, medical fails and vetting fails/ holding people up, they would need to have enough people progressing through.

    I'd take it as a good sign that they have got so low in the list of AC scores already, only stands to reason that we 'should' be included in the next batch if/when that happens.

    Excellent points, I'll stick with this and hopefully get word soon!!

    When the first lot start receiving PCA dates etc I wouldn't be surprised if we got letters around then.

    At least we will have plenty of time to prep for the PCA.

    Yip a wee bit longer would work better for me too!!




  • Wonder how many squads they are aiming for this time around?




  • Wonder how many squads they are aiming for this time around?

    Hopefully along the same lines as C1 and 2, I think C1 had approx 11, not too sure about this year.




  • Letters only went out on Saturday, everyone chill lol

    We can get a good idea about the Merit thing by simply asking is anyone still waiting on a letter with a score over 70?


    If not then yes they probably only sent them out to top scores, I would imagine 65+.

    If they take 11 sqauds then that's around 400 people I think. We can do it!!!!




  • Post came, can confirm I'm heartbroken, just Tescos junk today lol




  • Nope nowt for me either just B&Q junk!!!
