I created this website to help out someone going for the RAF OASC (Officer and Aircrew Selection Centre), and thought that it might be a good opportunity to help others doing similar in the future. So here are some resources that we found useful:
OASC Websites of Interest
A key part of the selection interviews, particularly for those going for Officer selection, is demonstration of your knowledge of world news and current affairs.
It's vitally important that you keep up-to-date with good and varied news sources, both online and off. Especially if you're not currently a regular news watcher or reader.
'Broadsheet' newspapers are important here, I'm afraid The Sun on its own won't cut it here. Try and read one (or, ideally more than one) of the broadsheet newspapers as regularly as you can.
