  1. Hi I went to my careers office yesterday to do my BARB test I did it and he gave me 2 differnt pages of job choices, on one set of pages was what I can go for if I do get my predicted grades (I'm still at school), and the jobs I could do without them. Looked through some and the Communications System Operator caught my eye, looked up on it and it says you do need grades for it but the sheet says you dont. http://www.army.mod.uk/signals/soldier-careers/3598.aspx. Which is correct?
    Thanks.
     
  2. Your link didn't work, try clicking here.

    It seems that Operators no longer need any GCSEs... but I'd double check with your careers office just in case.
     
  3. Correct, Operators don't need GCSEs.
     
  4. Okay thanks, that helped massively
     
  5. the only grade you will need is a grade 2 back and sides haircut!
     
  6. Or if you're really hard and want to upset the badge then go clean cut!
     
  7. what grades did an operator have to have before?
