hi all, Was wondering if anyone can help cos im getting a bit worried now. i really want to join army as a communication systems engineer as soon as possible really. Im 30 coming 31 in june and have GCSEs which are 15 years old now. I wasnt really into maths when i was at school and didnt really or want to get it either. Even saying that i got a grade D anyway which was the highest i could of got for the stage i was on. The criteria for the job i want is a C in maths,English and Science, i have all except maths. Today i done my barb test and scored 59 which i was told was good enough, but the questioned the maths GCSE. Six months ago i passed my CCNA which in my opinion wipes the floor with a GCSE. When i presented that to them they said it will make no difference and the only way i can get on is by doing a level 2 maths test there. Why do these recruiting people love the GCSEs so much, i understand if youve just left school then its most likely all you have got but not an adult surely. and the maddest thing is they advertise the cisco qualification as something you can achieve by joining the army which i already have. Anyway sorry for going on to much but whats my chances of getting in on the course i want with what i got ? oh and fitness is not an issue as ive always kept myself fit and healthy.
