Difficult Interview
Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Royal Navy (Preston, West Midlands, England, England)

Interview

It is very long very strenuous and goes into alot of medical history. I had a two year wait to get in to the navy. You have to take a test to see if you are clever enough and you have to take alot of exams on a three strike policy, fail three exams and you're out or you get transferred to another branch which requires lower IQ there is also alot of physical training weapons training and military training.
