Its been a few years since school and I am a much more motivated and committed person than I was back then. Yesterday in the test however, I scored extremely high and did well throughout the whole day. Now, I'm just wondering how much merit that will actually carry? Do the school results matter if they have proof that things have changed? I'm heading to ASP in about 2 months. I'm not too concerned and they told me that I shouldn't be either, just to keep studying. Can anyone give their experience in ASP? I'm aware that they use MACTS to test you.

Thanks guys.
Well done mate 2 months is crazy fast you must have killed it. What was everyone else's average time before they were invited to asp? i've been waiting 8 months so far & have heard on average its 10-12, however hopefully the new asp system will speed it up like it supposed too.

Hey mate, congratulations on doing well on your assessment day and good luck in your upcoming ASP in a couple months.

The results from your assessment day carry a lot of merit and will be a factor in determining your suitability as an officer. The upcoming ASP and other testing you have completed will be the main factor in determining your suitability for air crew roles such as pilot.

My advice is to try enjoy yourself whilst on ASP and interact as much as possible with other candidates whilst you are there. The few days down there gives you a small insight into what it is like to live on base. Take every opportunity to learn about OTS from the officer cadets and officers down there and though pilot is the main role a lot of candidates apply for, have a serious think about other aviation roles that you will learn about during the ASP.

Donít stress about the school results, I had average school and university results but after receiving strong results for pilot at ASP in May and strong recommendations during the application process, I will be sitting a board next week for RAAF Pilot.

Hey Mate, i had my first assessment day mid 2016 passed fine and was recommended, however i had minor medical issues as I've had a knee recon. took me all of 2017 to get my medical cleared including several doctor visits and day Surgery's just to get reports for ADF. Couple thousand dollars in bills. My medical was cleared late last year but my assessment day expired so i resat it around October passed again with flying Colours. I had an offer for ASP in march but it was only three days notice cause someone pulled out so i couldn't get the time off work. Hence i'am here now and just got my offer last week for the 30th July. - 2nd August

Has anyone been panelled for the August RAAF OTS intake yet? Iíve only just completed my OSB 2 weeks ago, and am not sure if Iíve made it in time for that course. If offers have already gone out, Iíll know to plan and hope for the January intake. Thanks

So far have only heard of offers going out for the July intake and only (that I know of) to those who had completed an OSB prior to their ASP. Perhaps the new financial year will bring some progress.

edit: apparently July is full up, no offers out for August as of last week.

They are still doing osbs for the August intake. I imagine you will get a response in a couple weeks once they are done.

Hi guys

Been reading into this quite a bit looking for anything that can help. Had my assessment day recently and have just received an offer to attend a ASP, the guy at my local requirement couldn't offer me much help on the whole process however did help a little, was wondering if anyone that has been through the new ASP could offer me a little insight into how the whole thing will go.

other questions:
Any recommendations on areas of study?
lets say i pass it and get recommended for OSB what is the wait time in between ASP's and OSB's ?

Cheers

People on my ASP completed OSB within 2 months. I'd recommend utilising the time at ASP to find out as much as you can about the role you are going for, the training involved and the military lifestyle. This will help you immensely at your OSB. Also, remember that the people running the ASP will have direct influence over your application progression, so ensure that you present yourself well. I'm not sure that you can study all that much for the actual testing. Practice mental maths and short term memory problems - that's about all I can think of.

I have my ASP coming up end of this month. Curious as to what sort of attire people wore; I am guessing a suit or business casual, yet during the full day sessions its a PT attire underneath a flight suit, correct? Which would mean wear the suit/business attire/smart casual en route there, and after hours (dinners etc) when you won't be in the flight suit? Silly question I know, the letter didn't explain in great detail as to what sort of attire is expected that's all.

Yeah you only need smart casual for your arrival and for breakfast the day you leave. Flight suits are the go all other times.

Funny that you post that...I was in at DFR this afternoon and my EC was saying how the Army is starting to make noise about starting up their drive for pilots again. Apparently they shut off the pipeline for pilots about a year ago at recruiting and said they'd be fine for 18 months or so, now it looks like they will start it up again. FYI for those interested in Army pilot.
