The fitness test was ok, it was the blood pressure test that got me! White coat syndrome I think! Had to go back to re take it! No idea why I panic so much I think it’s a mind thing.

Cheers guys, just got back and passed. So back to waiting now, hopefully not too long 🤞 2 no shows which is so frustrating as there are so many people waiting to do the test!!

JCOX, well done! Did you have to have a medical again? I thought you had a start date?

That’s my worry incase I do the fitness test again, I hate the blood pressure test, it’s always higher in those environments !
