Hi, I'm 18 and sitting AS levels soon expecting to get results over the 140 UCAS points needed for entry as an officer. I've applied to join the army as a soldier although I would also like to go for a commision at some point but not straight away I would prefer some time under my belt as a soldier. If I was to do this how would I go about it and what are the chances I would be successful once in? ie. would I be at an advantage from where I started before I joined or a disadvantage? Thanks.
