If i've been abroad for the last 10 years will I pass the BPSS?

Ive no way of proving where I was, dont have any references. I've just been travelling and working.

I'm 24, went to high school in the US, but since then there'd be no evidence of where i've been.

I have no credit/bank account/work history in the UK.

Just wondering if this would stop me passing?

want to join the paras, got a 9:30 run time at the minute, gonna lower that soon, currently weigh 195 (89kg) and need to drop that to about 170 (77kg) so i'm sure droppin that weight will speed me up considerably.

It asks about residency in last five years and if you have not you have to say where you where etc, but to be honest the only way you will know is if you go the AFCO and at the same time explain your brother is welbeck etc, everyone's case is different some get told no, some yes.
