AGC ETS, bone(ish) question

Discussion in 'AGC, RAPTC and SASC' started by Nutter, Feb 6, 2010.

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 all two questions.

    1. I am applying for the AGC (ETS), I am 10 UCAS points and 1 alice points short (35 needed I have 34), I know its possible to still get in at the CO of the recruting lots discretion, do I stand a chance?
    2. I had a letter telling me to call them I did and was told the person reviewing them was away until Tuesday; how long (guesstimate) would it take for them to decide.

    Sorry if these questions seem bone. However when I went into my AFCO to apply and the guy knew nothing about agc trades, had never heard of the ETS, couldnt answer questions about being short on UCAS points, and told me to fill in the online application which I did.

    So you lot seemed the best possibility of finding out the answer. The information of the army website make the ETS seem quite an interesting prospect being a student teacher at the moment.

    Apologies for bad grammar its beer o clock.
  2. In answer to your questions:

    1. Unless you learn how to write (see emboldened text) then no chance!!

    2. Call them and they'll let you know on the phone then and there I expect.

    You may wish to PM me to discuss further?
  3. I thought you needed at least 180 ucas points and a degree for getting into the ETS!
  4. Must have a degree - UCAS points accrued are irrelevant without one...
