    I know at least 2 lads that were.

    Both were given a dead line to come up to spec

    In one case it was found that he had a medical condition that should have excluded him from the RDF and so there was no hope for him to reach the required fitness level.

    The other re-submitted and as far as I am aware is still in the RDF.

    So in answer to the above question, get fit and resubmit.

    There are different grades based on the results - there is either 4 or 6 can't remember which, Grade 1 (called G1) is what you have to get (the level required is in the cadet booklet).

    Bear in mind that being able to hear all of those frequencies with your speakers at max volume doesn't guarantee a pass in the audiogram.

    I tore both my ACL & MCL snowboarding & i can assure you once it's treated
    your good to go. Make sure not to hide it from them or under-report it though
    as i did, or you'll get a bollocking from PTI, medic & Sgt.
    But they never said it was a disqualifying factor..
    They can't block you from joining if you pass the fitness tests.
    fair one Mad P and well done, i was only basing my comments on another thread:

    Originally posted by Rhodes View Post

    which clearly stated that the Irish DF has higher medical entry standards than the British Army, and if this was the case then joining the Irish DF would surely be out of the question.

    the British Army obviously do not "just take anyone" if such an injury prevents you from joining us whilst allowing you into the Irish DF and Rhodes was clearly in the wrong when he made that blanket statement, so i apologise on his behalf.
