Javid, I really wouldn,t worry too much about being backtrooped, i would say it is very unlikely. Alot of guys from my troop when i joined in 2003 got worse scores on the first PT session than they did on the PRMC, and a few had had injuries in between and therefore the scores were in some cases fai...

Essentially all at CTC go on leave at the same time, except a skeleton crew who are there for security duties etc.All recruits will go on leave at the same time and return at the sam...

WWW, How old will you be when you leave university? Dependant on your age it may be in your advantage to have a gap year whilst getting your fitness up to try for an officer.
