    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at The British Army.

    Interview

    Interview/Selection process is pretty straight forward and easy if you are a fit and confident person. You will be required to pass very basic physical tests, do some group problem solving tasks and stand up to introduce yourself to a small group of people for 3 - 5 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to join the Army? Are you the type to get homesick? What is your physical fitness like? How fast can you run 2km? How much can you deadlift? How many pull ups can you do? How many press ups can you do? How many sit ups can you do?   1 Answer
