Anyone know what the BMI limits are on applying to the TA? I am 1m78 and weigh about 100kg. The Online Careers site on the army website reckons I cannot apply unless I am less than 84kg. - no exceptions. This would be a BMI of 26.5. Admittadily I do need to drop a bit of weight, but I am currently around 20% bodyfat, that is just about in the "normal" range. I recknon I can drop 5kg - but there is no way I will ever be 84kg! Does the army not accept a medical, with fitness and/or bodyfat assesment, and rely entirly on BMI?
