Thank you Brubru...
The problem is that I do not live in my home country at the moment and I do not have a doctor. But I will look around quickly to see if I can get an appointment and the certificate withina few days.
Fingers crossed..!

I've also passed the physical test.
Thanks to all who wished me luck!
I really felt relieved and I can confirm what some of you underlined earlier. It's more a matter of preparation than being very fit. Today I've witnessed a very fit guy who has suffered a muscle blockage. Fortunatelly he managed to get over it. Well done!
So please practice and prepare based on what MKkk and others advised here. Do intense training and leave one day rest between training and test. Eat carbs the evening before and hidrate min 3l of water.
All exercises have to be performed as described.
You have lockers to change, toilets and water. It's an indoor activity with decent facilities. Wear shorts and T or tracksuit. Up to you. Speed test easy peasy. Just can't be failed. :-)
Be careful with the push-ups. They are meant to be triceps push-ups with palms and fingers forward and at shoulders width. Make sure you place them a little fwd than your shoulders level and perform the push-ups with elbows out.
I was very confident with my push-ups and I was surprised not being able to do nothing more than the exact expected number.
At situps try to bounce back from your falling and use only the lower torso. It works.
Beep test easier than expected to me.
But I've practiced it more than 7 times all the way.
Warm up and stretch to relax.
From the level 5 on try to speed up on your shuttle start and relax the rest. You will always meet the beep. Or at least this worked forme. Breath fast and not deep.
They are not tough. Everyone is there to assist you and help you pass. I believe anyone who's done the fitness test can confirm it.
Good luck to you too! :-)
P. S. WHAT A RELIEF!

Congrats Stanx, and thank you for all the info that you put here, in this forum. Any kind of information can be really helpful for someone not used to this type of test. Were there any girls for the fitness test today?

Nice one Stanx. Well done. Time for a polish beer and relax before the second part tomorrow.
How big was the group of candidates if you don’t mind asking?

Pace yourself during the first group of sets. We where asked not to record and post anything so il leave it at that. Frontex staff there where very friendly and helpful. Wasnt like a military environment but remember you are always being watched and assessed.
Congratulations ! Good luck with the interview!
I ve finished successfully the English test and i am now waiting for the Physical exam dates.
May i ask two questions please:
You were able to finish the 10x10 33sec? That seems like a 100 m sprint;
You need to do every 10 meters in roughly 3 seconds correct?
When it comes to the 20 m shuttle you need to able to run 1.100meters in roughly 6minutes?
Thank you! Please let us know about your interview.
ps. Were you asked to do medical check already?
