Hi I just booked in for specialist selection for the combat engineer job. I was wondering if it is too late now to change my preference for this job ( combat engineer is my 3rd preference) or can I ring up my case manager and change my preference for number 3 ? and might this ruin my chances of getting in if its a hassle for them to do so ? sorry if its already been a topic couldn't find it. Also if I do end up doing my specialist testing for combat engineer what does it involve ?

cheers

Absolutely.
Do not go into a job you're not 100% keen on, you will regret it in ways you can only begin to imagine.

It's been said before, but the best job in the army that you love more than anything else in this world, will make you question your life choices on a frighteningly frequent basis, one you aren't 100% keen on will be four years of misery.

Ring them up and tell them you're not interested in doing extra testing for your 3rd preference and that you'd rather just get interviewed for 2. In reality you probably only want to do your first preference anyway, so stick to your guns on that job.

The soul of a nation stirred.
