No worries guys, and lady...

Enjoy your time when you get out here. I expect I'll have left these shores by the time you get here, but keep smiling and remember what the end result will be, even when it seems far off in the distance. It will be well worth it.

Keep checking the blog on cp41.net for updates...

I had stage 3 on Wednesday and then got lucky and managed to get a slot the next day at Nursling. James do we fly out 5th or 6th?

It's still sinking in that I got through!! I get more and more excited everyday! There is sooo much to get sorted now though, as someone said before this is like stage 5 of selection!

Bournemouth Hotels

Does anyone have any details for the suggested hotels to stay at in Bournemouth?

As has been pointed out elsewhere in the thread, your best bet (if your selection day is at the Bournemouth training centre) is one of the many B&Bs in Christchurch, specifically one of the good selection of them along Stour Road. It's about 10-15 mins drive/taxi ride from the airport and within walking distance from the train station if you're going down on public transport. Google is your friend!

I'd highly recommend staying on one of the ones on Stour Road, the train station is only a two minute walk away and then so is the high street with all the shops. Make sure you book in advance though as they usually fill up really fast!

I stayed in the Stour Villa which was fine, didn't have wifi though but I did manage to borrow an iron.

If money isn't an issue and you aren't driving you could always stay in one of the hotels in Southampton and then get the train in the morning straight to Christchurch and a taxi to the airport. I stayed in the Ibis which was next door to the station for about 60, very nice room, left me very prepared for the sim.

selection charge at phase 2?!?!?!

Hi there,

I booked my Phase 2 for the 31/07/07 about 10 days ago now. I recieved a confirmation email almost instanty after i booked online.

Today, I looked in the booking notes section of the online aplication form, (where it tells you what to bring such as certificates, passport, photo etc) and found this:

Please note that with immediate effect, payment of the selection fee is now made at phase 2, not at phase 3 as previously. Payment must be made by credit card, by ringing 023 80 742 442 within 24 hours of making your booking to confirm your booking. The amount payable is 176.25 inclusive of VAT.

On the confirmation email (yes confirmation email) it did not mention the charge put at phase 2 (instead of phase 3 as where everyone else says, i gathered from this forum).

Well I am obviously over the 24 hours, am i screwed????

Nick

I wouldn't worry about it, especially if there is no mention of it in your confirmation e-mail. It sounds like it's a fairly recent change. Just give them a ring on the number given and explain the situation. They're very friendly and helpful, I'm sure it won't be an issue!

mallinderjb- Nice birthday present!!

Just wondering, I sent my application last week and stated that I could not start training until around 01/08/2008 due to being in my final year at uni, do you think they will make me wait a while to do selection or could I do it sooner? I'd much rather be able to know what my future holds before i graduate.

re: selection charge at phase 2 ?!?!?!

Hi people, hi Nick!

I've just seen on my application the same change on the application fee.

Have you already called CTC? Did they tell you the reason for that change?

I'll call them a bit later, as I wasn't exepcted that expense at that stage, I must arrange a little bit my finances!!

Hi!

I just called CTC but my line was so terrible, I was hardly understanding what the person was saying...

So I haven't been able to ask anything about that change.

Anyway that's paid now!

Bye!
