Hello there, I have recently applied to my local army schools liason officer for officer entry into the British Army. I have recieved a letter in reply indicating that I do not have sufficient academic grades for entry. The grades I got when leaving school were pretty arrse which I admit, however since leaving school I have spent 3 years at college and I am now on my way to picking up a HND in computer networking which I can convert into a degree in a year. The reason I am applying now is for the chance to recieve funding from the army while I am at university (which I did indicate I was interested in on the application form) and also I wish to go on a few familiarisation visits. I would have thought that a degree would count for more than the exams I flunked while at secondary school. Can any fellow arrsers tell me wether this is right or not?
