Hi, I know I have been asking about a lot of different roles recently but I was wondering if someone with only A-levels and not a degree can become an officer if they meet the required amount of UCAS points or does this rarely happen, because on the navy careers website it says only A-levels are needed for some roles?
I wouldn’t advise anyone to sit AIB prior to their GCSEs. The only reason to do an AIB in year 11 or 12 is to gain a sixth form scholarship (linked info below). Most people (and granted, not everyone (Alf!)) would benefit from having as much experience of leadership and teamwork as possible to show at AIB. In my experience the difference in maturity between a 15 year old and 18 year old is stark.
What did we ever do without the internet and its ability to field all the questions to all the subjects we know bugger all about. Only to worry ourselves shitless on what we may never be asked in case we don't know the answer to that ONE question we will not know the answer to!!!
Its 42 by the way!!!
I can confirm that with a set of fairly ropey A levels YOU CAN become an Officer in the Royal Navy, as of yesterday I am now on the Dartmouth Entry list for January '18, been a bloody long journey though!!
