Im 21 in september and i applied for the British army 2 years ago this month, i have passed all my selections and passed my interviews with flying colours, also won the best student for the army insight course. Basically, because i only got a 'B' grade with selection back in March i have been told it could be anything up to a year before i could be in basic training, should i just bite the bullet and accept that 3 years is too long to wait for something and cross over to join the TA instead? Would they frown on this? I was already in the army when i was 16 aswell which i suppose is what half the trouble is over it being this long since i have been accepted and pass everything, what should i do? I just want to join the armed forces. Would i have to do selection again aswell and how long would i have to wait to join the TA if i do decide to cross over? Any replies are welcome thank you.
