Normal cadet entry to RMAS is via officer selection at Westbury.
I also found some light humour in your interview can be a God send, you get to see the board crack a smile and it shows that they too are human. The last week of Sandhurst, this is a full week of drill, so if I am going to try and drag this out into another weekly blog, it could be somewhat of an effort.
Like the nature documentaries where the hare is fleeing from the fox, and the fox has finally caught me in a magnificent show. Le Marchant and General Francis Jarry, an exiled French officer, who had organized a training school for officers at High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire three years earlier.

Recent visits have turned his head to life as an Infantryman after interviews with several regiments: "I'm trying to keep my options broad for when I get to Sandhurst as I might go to exercise and get cold and wet and decide the infantry is not for me!". After Sandhurst, I will be going to the Infantry Battle School in Brecon to conduct my platoon commanders battle course and I am overly chuffed, I have the regiment of my dreams and I cannot wait for the honour of commanding my soldiers when I finish my training. I'm somewhat tempted by infantry but unsure I can get fit in time (underweight for years, building up is a PITA). Having been drawn to the Royal Marines in the past, a stint in a desk-job reignited James' military motivation. Not to intimidate anyone, but anyone who says that they were not intimated by their boards is a liar!

First choice of regiment is usually given to those high up in the order of merit, which is determined by a formula combining educational achievement with an assessment of personal qualities. Finally, the Regimental Selection Board assigns individuals to their regiment, so they know where they are headed once they have passed through as British Army Officers. The earlier you decide on an arm or type of regiment, the most effort you can put into getting to know people and having them get to know you – and achieving a mutually satisfactory decision over choice of regiment or arm. I learned them at Sandhurst when it became necessary to consider the regiment of one's choice, and this was not until about halfway through the course at the college.
