    • Hi all,

      I have a few questions in mind regarding Commando's Selection. Most of the questions were answered, but i still have 1 more question. Is there a minimum height  requirement in order to be selected to join the Commandos?

    • Yes.It’s a fact.You have to be at least 160.My friend who went for the Vocational Assessment(VA) at Hendon Camp asked the interviewer and he said that must be at least 160cm.

    • Anyone going for Commando BMT on 7th Feb? My classmate got his posting online already(and I didn't....*goes off to one corner*)

      Even for PTP-bound people like me who went for the VA, if i didn't receive any posting online that means I'm definitely not in?

      I think the people in MINDEF updates the online database first, then sends the letters to the selected people. So most likely you SHOULD receive your letter days later.

      S.s.k are you enlisting in Feb next year?

      Nah, I didn't get it =( Probably didn't meet their requirements. Quite disappointed. But never mind, if I'm going Tekong, then so it will be.

      Besides, if I DID get in, i'll be in the PTP batch, I failed NAPFA ._.

      Oh yeah, if your friends got the letter, and you didn't, it's most probably just the order of mail delivery. You'll get it eventually :)

      BTW, anyone got selected for the Commando PTP batch?

      According to information in this thread, no.

      Commando recruits pass out as privates after commando BMT, then they undergo Basic Commando Training (BCT), for a period of...wait I forgot. 3 months? Or longer?

      Then after BCT they'll pass out as corporals and receive their red beret. But for outstanding individudals who get sent to the Commando Section Leader Course(CSLC), it should be a different route for them. 

      P.S. That's all I know. Commando veterans please feel free to point out any mistakes that I have made.

      P.P.S. BTW what's with that Yunyang? That picture he posted was very disturbing.

      I think its alright if you never end up in cdo because you have the attitude and spirit for Army (; Who knows, maybe you will be the future officier and sergents! haha don't be disappointed (;

      Haha, I'm not sure about the 'officers and sergeants' part, but I'll guess I'll have to learn as many new things as possible in the army. =)

      To be honest, I wanted to join the commandos because of their mental and endurance training...
