        Re: howdy!!!

        Yes! Looks like we may see each other then lol

        I wish I could give you some advice on the whole thing but that would be the blind leading the blind.

        Personally, I'm not going to worry about it too much. Theres an interview which only you can be ready for and a test which they say can't be revised for. So what can ya do?

        Are you engine or deck?

            Me too, especially the chance to go see Warsash, even though I was planning to go to the open day in January.

            Its all about the engineering for me Lol.

            Just so you know, I'm gonna be walking around the shell people shouting "drunken sailor???" and you're gonna have to put your hand up to shut me up lol

                Indeed =D

                Well I had an RT test with the RFA but that wasn't really an interview. So I suppose yes, its my first interview for a sept 2011 start anyway. I did some interviews at the beginning of the year for sept 2010 start but I had to delay for personal reasons.....

                I'm applying for the Fd and yourself?

                I don't believe Shell pay for accom at college as they pay around £11,000 starting I believe but they cover living costs on ship.

                    I'll be down in the fire school on the 8th, so I won't be out to look at you all in your suits, but good luck!
