From what I've seen there are some low results on the push up phase of gym test one. If you follow the PRMC fitness schedule it will get you fit enough to pass, but not fit enough not to struggle. When I did mine in 2001 I was doing the a different version of the current PRMC fitness schedule. I was...

During the "GULF WAR II" they were running 2 PRMCs a week (Tues - Fri, Fri - Mon) and having and new intake of recruits every week instead of every fortnight.

It was chaos.

It varies. When I went in a couple of years ago I had to wait 8 week between my PRMC and starting basic, but another guy (lucky shit) waited 2 days. The troop starting that weekend had someone phoning up saying they weren't showing up, so this other guy got offered the placement. He did his PRMC Tue...
