    You should be tried for crimes against the English language...
     
  6. You will be okay to join as you only have 1 unspent conviction :)
     
  7. Iv been out 5 years now

    Jus been turned down for re-enlistment with 3 unspent cons

    I hear 1 or 2 is not so bad, however with the rise in applicants the army can afford to be alot more fussy with who they take.

    So in all fairness you should be aiming for none and an A grade at RSC or whatever its called now ADSC i think.

    Good luck fella
     
  8. If you have 1 or 2 unspent convictions when you apply they will not be held against you when you are graded, they are just observations.

    The grading is based on the assessment of how good an applicant is and how much of a risk to train they would be, an A grade being a top quality applicant that would be no risk whatsoever, to a D grade that is just being used to keep the pot full but would be a potential training failure (until such time as they were reassessed and had improved of course).
