Right, won't bore you with the long story... mainly because there isn't one But anyway, I have been declined entry at officer level due to not having 180 UCAS points (I'm sure 5.56 was a more important number back in my days as a private, but tally ho...) Anyway, question is, is there no way out of this? I've already written a letter (about to send off) to the Recruiting & Training Division expressing my disappointment It worries me that fresh-out-of-school, 18-year-old student with A-Levels in media studies, cookery, window licking... (or whatever you tax-thieving mongs study now-a-days) is allowed to join as an officer cadet, yet an ex-TA private with 4 years experience, who's also served 3 years in neighbourhood policing... is simply told to foxtrot oscar. My 2 best mates are uni-students and as much as I love them for being absolute dip-shits, it scares the funk out of me knowing THEY could be leaders in the army, just because of some b0ll0cks scoring system I've been told to apply as a soldier. Been there, done that, no thanks. Really?!
