  1. Im new here and have a abit of a look and cant find what im after so here goes. I have been refused entry into the British Army due to my Aspergers. I have the chance to appeal so i went to my specialist and she said that it was more than likely abnormal childhood behaviour that got ne diagnosed as there is nothing wrong with me and hasnt been since i was a kid. Anyways she said she will do a reassessment on me and see if i no longer meet the criteria, what im looking to find out is will i still be refused if i am no longer meeting the criteria? Or will it increase my chances during an appeal? Also can i ask how an appeal works as Palace Barracks are useless. Thanks lads.
  2. I think you need another look (or ten) and find a more appropriate place to post this.
  3. Pretty solid response there. Bet it's the only one, what with it being Friday and that.
  4. The Army can be a bit gruff at times not fully appreciate Aspergers. May I suggest you try the RAF? If you are dead set on soldiering side of the army, keep away from the RAF Regiment as you will be very disappointed.
  5. Aspergers is a 100% bar to entry. Having said that, it is recognised that there are many cases where people have been wrongly diagnosed. If you are one of those who has been misdiagnosed, your appeal should be successful.

    As for how the appeals process works, this is covered in detail on other threads - use the search function to find out where.
