Hi chaps, thought I'd join the forum and say hello. I graduated a couple of years ago with a 2:2 degree (I know, ) and am looking into joining the army as an officer. Would the 2:2 degree be a hindrance to getting into Sandhurst? I'm worried they might see it as evidence of lacking academic ability or the drive to get a 2:1. I did work quite hard, unfortunately for my degree result much more of my efforts went into training and playing sport (in two sports, both for the University First team) and then into helping run the club, on the committee. I did go to one of the better universities, but I'm worried about my grade. Also, does your degree result affect which parts of the army you can apply to join? I know some require a specific degree, but will having a 2:2 rule out any particular part of the army? I was pretty disappointed at the time with the result, I got a great deal from playing sport and feel like I achieved a lot in that but in the end my piece of paper says "2:2". I know this doesn't reflect my intellect but it's a question of how to show that. If I did it all over again I think I might do things differently, but can't change it now! Cheers.
