ADSC completed, B grade

#1
Just back from my ADSC and got a B grade. The officer said that I needed only 4 more marks to get an A and I'm absolutely kicking myself for not getting one.
Just wondering if any of you know how this will affect my chances of getting to Int Corps selection? I've heard that you pretty much need an A to get considered but since I was very close to getting one will I still have a chance?

I only got an average B at ADSC, the team tasks were very poor for me. The Major doing the interview at ADSC asked me some random current affairs questions to try and gauge my suitability for Int Corps selection, i did well on those, and came across well during the interview. ( i think it helped that i had some decent-ish academic grades too, aswell as having knowledge of his local pub ) I was recomended for the Int Corps selection process, and subsequently passed that, so it it definitely possible!

That's definitely reassuring to hear! Team tasks were painfully average for me, trying to tell people ideas while everyone is shouting louder than the next person to try and stand out, then the odd one or two doing the opposite of what everyone agreed! Nightmare!
My interview was very strong and the officer said he would definitely recommend me for the Int Corps so here's hoping!

I got a high B at the ADSC and like yourself, I was a few marks off an A due to being too quite in the team tasks. I was still recommended for Int Corps selection though so you shouldn't worry.

Yeah, they gave me my provisional date to start training as well. Did you contact your AFCO after you completed the ADSC?

FoC. However, on a serious note, it's not all about the tasks per se, but as you describe, how you present yourself at interview etc. well done and hope you go far in God's own Corps should you get that far. ( just don't become a dim-sider!)

I've got O Level Art and I was in the Int Corps. Does that compare?

Hey, finally someone posted about the situation I'm in. Passed Adsc in November with a B. A single mark off of an A. Smashed the fizz and the command tasks and was told I met the specification of the average candidate to a tee. Basically I'm wondering if I should be worried that I have yet to hear about a selection date. I had taken the precaution of befriending another hopeful at adsc and he's got a date in march? What I'm asking in a long winded way, is it normal not to hear anything? I've contacted my recruiter for any update and it's got to a point where he's told me he'll let me know if anything comes up.
What were your school grades like? I managed to get a fair few highers and done a year at uni so I've got a feeling it bumped me up the list considerably

I attended Uni and graduated with a 2:1 degree in international relations/war studies. I only tend to tell those that are required about my education otherwise you get all the questions under the sun about why you'd want to volunteer.
We had another chap with a degree once. Many years ago. Can't remember his name, something double-barrelled. But a frightfully decent chap, rather posh. I think his was only in film studies though, so you should do much better than he did. We did wonder what on earth he was doing joining the Army, seeing as he had a degree and could have had his choice of career.

Really hope you make it through, you will drag the average education level of the Intelligence Corps up by several hundred points. And I wouldn't be shy about mentioning that on your interview.
