Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. hi
    is it better to go straight into the army when you are 16 and go to AFC Harrogate or do a-levels and then go into the army?
    i want to go into the royal artillery
    all views much appreciated
    thanks very much
  2. The army can assist you with your A Levels if you wish.

    Personally if it was up to me I would get your A Levels sorted before you join up. They will be of assistance to you when you eventually leave the army and are back in civi street looking for a job.
  3. Yup what soldier.a said is exactly what they said to me in the AFCO. If I were you I'd go down there and ask them a few questions regarding it, just to make sure you know what you'd be getting into if you did decide on the AFC. Good luck!
