Afternoon lads. My name is Alex Clark. I'm 16 (Recently) and have been pondering over the thought of wether the British Army career is the one for me for quite some time now. Probably about half a year ago i was listening in on the radio and i picked up another advertisement about signing up. This one was different - It spoke about 2 places: AFC Harrogate Welbeck I quickly researched the two places and soon got me 'bearings' of what each of the college's/sixth form's did. After a long thought - i decided to pop in with a parent into the local Career's office for the British Army, Nave and RAF. (Southampton for those who may like to know). I have now had the application pack in my top drawer for over 4 months untouched. (Parents hate the thought) I looked through about a week ago and saw i was already 5 months legal to apply. (Not to enter, but to apply - legal for both now). So i filled out the application - done the deeds and have now booked a slot for 11.30am, Thursday morning in the career's office to send off my application. I have discuss'd Welbeck and preferably i would like that - but sadly i am (not far off) but missing the A grade in Mathematics - Getting a B. Also the local Career's office does not submit to Welbeck unless unusally high standards. Therfore i am applying for AFC. Suddenly for the first time I am beginning to hae a slight nervousness. Would be very greatful if some guys here may have been through it all and if so could give as much information and help as possible. (preferably not like the trainwreck of this thread: http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=71162.html) I have heard a large amount fail the medical (after physical) - but i am running through my head the fact i am not athsmatic. Much regards, Alex - Please excuse any spelling errors.
