DE question from serving Ssgt

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Officer Recruiting' started by Driverman11, Nov 28, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have been booked on a Fam visit in Feb then hopefully pass that then main board.
    Should i knock up a CV? I have life experience and GCSE, AS, A levels and BTec's.
    Will this all look better if I put it on paper?
    If so, shall I take it to the Fam or the main board?

    Also If I was to tell someone all my quals could they tell me is this enough to get in?
    I know its on a point system but if a independent source could check this for me that would be brilliant!
  2. I am ignorant of commissioning from the ranks, but when you say Fam visit, is that the AOSB Briefing? Just wondering, as before I attended I had to submit a full CV. However, things may well be different for DE.
  3. Yes its pre main board
  4. Must be rather different for DE entry compared to a civilian application then. What I can suggest is giving Westbury a ring and asking them if it's required - they're very helpful.
  5. FWIW, I passed RCB with no academic quals whatsoever.

    Edited to add: things may have changed since then however.

    (that made me giggle. a little. not much. but a little)
