Hiya,

I applied back in September, did my CFAT in December but due to consent issues couldn't continue anything until last week. I have my medical on Thursday and my interview in 2 weeks. I applied for Computer Science with Intelligence as the ultimate goal but now I'm being (strongly) encouraged to consider other option.

Seeing these 90+ averages has me wondering why the man I spoke with was so adament that they'd want me even though I'm so incredibly behind. My average is at best high 80s but I have a couple courses to finish still. My higher grades are from grades 9 and 10.

My biggest question is how exactly the bilingualism component works. Do the classes also bounce between English and French or is that only outside life?

Thanks for any answes :)

Hello,
I have been following this form for some time since I started my application process back in September, I received my offer on March 3rd for infantry officer and will be attending RMC Saint Jean for my first  year. Who else has BMOQ starting on June 26th?

Hi!

I began my application in September of last year. Since then, I have submitted all required documents to my recruiter. I am applying from out of Canada (from Mexico), so I haven't done my interview or medical test yet. Does anybody know what the deadline for selections is? I'm worried that I am behind schedule, and that this will affect my chances of getting in.
Thanks

During FYOP, you will take a French language comprehension test. Based on your score, you will be placed on a certain module. When I got tested, some chose to hand in the test right back to the administrator and began soon after at Mod 0 and some people like me, scored high enough to have the chance and get tested right away for their French language profile which you will need later in your career to advance in senior officer appointments. You will have the chance to get tested around the time you complete Mod 10 if you do not get given the chance right away.

There are three components to a language profile: grammar, reading, and speaking. You take all tests separately, and all are assessed with the following grades (from lowest to highest): X, A, B, C, E.

"A" means you know French but not that well. "B" means that you are able to defend yourself in a French environment; this is the minimum you must acquire across all three language profile components in order to graduate from RMC with AFAN (have the right to say rmc after your name; e.g. A. B. C. Bloggins, rmc). Beyond B is quite admirable with E meaning you won't ever be tested again.

After you get a minimum of B/B/B, you will have the chance to take classes in your second official language but personally I don't believe that is enough to do well in a class. Simply take the placement test seriously, because RMC's priority is to help you graduate with your AFAN, not just your academic degree and therefore if they believe is necessary, they will put you in for a whole summer learning French when instead you could be advancing in your phases of training or doing work experience.

Best of luck.

So I have finished up submitting all the required documents and completed my CFAT, and Interview. I guess all there is to do now is wait.

I have a few questions though. Firstly, I have looked around on this website and have seen that in the past some people received their acceptances as late as May, but if someone can confirm that I would appreciate it, I don't feel that I am one the most qualified candidates so if I do get accepted I assume it will be near the end.

Also if possible if anyone happens to know more detail about how the prep year works, some clarification would also be appreciated because from what I understand it is for applicants that need improvement in some way, whether that is grades or other things. The reason I am asking is because, my average is quite good, but I do not have a science or grade 12 math, which I don't technically need but is suggested for the Arts degrees and I want to know if there is a good chance I will be sent for the prep year to make up for that.

Thanks.

It's not a requirement and so do not worry about them. You will take a math placement test and depending on how you score, you will be put on MAE 103 (college pre-calc) or go straight to a more advanced course: MAE 106. As long as you submitted you application early, preferably before December, and you aren't failing any classes, your chances of getting selected are possible.

Thanks for the quick reply. A placement test makes sense.

I had my application in by the end of September and I am not nearly failing any classes. So I hope I am good.

I just received my offer to the ROTP program for Artillery. They didn't tell me much and said I would get more information in the near future.
