Education certificates to BARB test

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. Hi, sorry if this is a stupid question but I have my BARB test on Thursday and the Recruiter told me to bring all relevant certificates with me when I had in my application forms and stuff, he said don't bother turning up with an incomplete form.

    I've filled all the form out but can't find my GCSE certificates anywhere. I can get replacements but not before Thursday and was wondering if anyone knew if I'll be OK telling him they're on their way or if I need to have them definately on the day.

  2. Ask your old school if they can give you a print out of your results as a temporary measure till you get your certs through, this will help your Recruiter provissionally job brief you until you have proof.
  3. Thank you, I have my A level certificates so it's not like I don't have anything to prove I've got some education. Just wasn't sure how strict he was likely to be :) Dense of me to lose them I know but no-one has ever asked to see them before.
