Hello, I would like to know from peoples expirience how long it normally takes from going to the careers office and applying to stepping off the train at basic training. Added in the fact that that I will do everything asked of me as quickly as possible. I am planning to join as an infantryman as I have no GSCE's and that is the job, given the available options, that I would enjoy. I ask as I am 25 and have commitments so I need to plan out things accordingly. Also does anyone know if having financial commitments will hamper my application? Thanks.
