Had my BARB test yesterday, did pretty well (won't post the score for fear of accusations of boasting as per my thread on another forum ) The bloke at the ACO seemed pretty bemused I wanted to be a tank driver, thumbing through my CV and results he said it might be a problem cos you're grades are so high I was (un)fortunate enough to go to quite a posh school, combined with a pushy mum and the stuck-up bellends I was forced to socialise with left me plenty of time for studying so I got my head down and studied hard for my GCSEs (not so my A-Levels). Anyway, the guy at the ACO said it might be a problem putting tank driver as first choice, with REME and Ammunition Tech. as my 2nd and 3rd; he said if the army had it's way I'd be in the REME, and they might consider me 'wasted' as a driver/gunner/tank commander He explained that if I was to put tank driver as my first choice and not hit the mark for that choice, having the other 2 below it as pointless as I wouldn't make the grade for those either. But on the flipside, if I had ammunition tech. as first choice, if I was to hit the mark I would be doing that, not what I really want to do Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice is welcome.
