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. Hello! :soldier:

    Right 1st topic/1st post here..

    I am a 19year old female..I have 6 GCSES (Inc. Eng lit/lang/ICT) However I got a D in Maths :frustrated: .

    I am looking on maybe joining the army.

    I am intrested at ;
    -- OPERATOR MILITARY INTELLIGENCE doing the Human Intelligence field.
    -- MILITARY POLICE--(However you need a Grade C maths for this).

    My questions are .. do the army value a adult numeracy level 2 (the eqv. of a C grade maths GCSE)?

    Also can someone give me as much info on the jobs I listed and any others I could think about??

    Thanks
    Charl!

  3. Thanks for the reply :D

    Yer I basically live on that site! Jus wanted some info with all the stuff they don't mention on that the nitty gritty stuff I spose ..chances of getting in what to really expect in the role etc
     
  4. Go OPMI, INT CORPS. As long as you have 5+ A-C grades including English, you should have no problem as far as I know. That's all I've got anyway!
     
  5. Yes, the adult numeracy level 2 certificate is equal to a maths GCSE, well for intelligence corps anyway. You can take it for free, although the company that does it uses the same maths test that you'd have done at the ACIO so you might know some of the answers already.
