Topic: My RoKMC Service Specific Physical and Interview


I survived the interview. The interviewing major kept picking on me because I lived abroad for so long... the other guys in my interview group said they felt kinda bad. lol.
I got full marks for pushups and I got the rating just under full marks for situps. So basically 90%ish.
I can't see why I won't qualify for boot camp.

The major who was interviewing us made me keep going on and on in English. Then one of the guys who was in our group got his turn, he said his major in university was English and English literature.
So the major makes HIM speak English. Obviously it's not as good as mine. Then when he's done the major calls my name again. And I say, "yes, sir." He tells me to translate what the guy said. I wasn't REALLY listening so I had to paraphrase it... basically the version without the names. Not sure if he was testing me or testing the other guy ... probably both.

Pushups... I was like the only guy who did them kinda right. Me and this other guy who was paired up with some other dude but the guy was right next to me. Most of the dudes were basically doing the "fvcking" manouver. So they got 72 pushups in 2 minutes. The poor bloke who was paired with me managed only to do 45... which makes you wonder what on earth he had shown up for. He was thin as a bean pole and obviously VERY stylish. He didn't get very far with his situps either. 72 pushups in 2 minutes is full marks and 82 situps in 2 minutes is full marks. I made 72 and 74 respectively... not great but not bad considering I was BUSTING to take a piss at this point!

Sorry Chewie
I don't keep my pictures up for very long anymore. There are some pricks from this other board who abuse pictures so I just show it for a short while and get rid of it before they have any bad ideas. And a picture as suspect as THAT one, H3LL yes I'd get rid of it. LOL!

Killgore, it always pays to be prepared. This one guy who was my partner for the pushup and situp test certainly had zero preparation and it looked like the guy had never done any sports or athletic thing in his life! He bunched his hands together at shoulder width for the pushup. That's fine... if you're working out, or if you're in the RoKMC 1st level physical test and want to flunk out. Then he barely struggled to do 45 of those and I was VERY generous as well. He must have gone down like 5 cm on some of the final ones. But I wasn't fussed. If he's smart, he'd go work out for the two months he has before we hit boot camp (if he makes it which I doubt), and if he doesn't, well, he's screwed. His situps were midly better because I think he did some workouts that kept him thin to impress the ladies. But his final score was close to 50 or 60%.

Even at 90% physical and a decent run at interview I'm not guaranteed to qualify for boot.
I guess that guy doesn't have a chance in hell and we're lucky for it.

It sure does pay to be prepared but, i didn't make it in officer position on friday because they said i need more life experience and im too young (18 years old), though i was told that i have leadership potential. It was not exactly something i could have prepared for.

I have physically prepared myself no doubt. I do 30 min run on a treadmill every day and can do up to 40 pushups and 100 sit ups. Obviously being physically prepared isn't enough for officer position. Anyway im going in general entry where i hope to get in pretty easily because i physically prepared myself. Afterwards after several years serving as a low ranked soldier, i'll apply for an officer position again. The Warrant officer recommended that i take this approach.

Anyway its good to see that you got into something you worked hard for and i hope you make it through boot.
