GCSE Grades

#1
i recently recieved my GCSE Grades : 14 B's, 2 C's

however, i have taken an interest to Infantry, but my Recruiter at the Careers said as im already going to harrogate, when i opt to change job choice there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY they will let me do Infantry with grades like mine, even though it is probably were i will be happiest :(

im currently down for Information Systems Engineer as the job i passed selection with, Heating and Plumbing Engineer, is all full

is this true?

thanks

Its possible Heating and plumbing is Full

No one can stop you joining the Infantry

no i took some early in year 9 and 10

and IT is worth 4 and science is worth 2, the exam boards count them all together though

and no my other question was generally changing jobs, this one is an obstacle in my path

thanks for the replies however,

so youre saying that they cannot refuse me entry to an infantryman unless i dont meet the physical standards or what have you

who the hell does 16 GCSEs? :?
And still have no concept of spelling and punctuation. :roll:

Grades aren't that flash fella, I've no doubt there are bound to be some lads with degrees. Grow a set, and do what you want to do.

Only minimum requirements to different parts of the army I beleive.

The other question is related to the other topic, have some sense and ask for your answer to be clarified, don't start a new thread for every question. I think that's what they were getting at.

While we're going on about GCSE grades; 1 A. 7 B's and 2 C's :)

oh yeah i understand, you can probably tell by my post number im relatively new to this site, i was merely a spectator for some time

and i wasnt trying to be flash or anything, just trying to get across why the recruiter said what she did, and i do have a pair, i play with them regularly

using full metal jacket quotes, honestly...

well i just have an interest in them at the moment, quite a strong one though
i have no disire to fix computer systems my whole career
if the plumbing job offer is on the table ill take that as its my 1st job choice

by the way, does your final decision to change jobs have to be one that was in your original 3 job choices?
 
#13
that was the main attraction mate, i want something that i can easily do in civvy street, but still play a decent role out in the field

IT doesnt seem to offer me that

any other recommendations for a trade but with soldiering involved?

It's never been the same since they scrapped "O" Levels.
At least we learnt how to spell, use punctuation, and start proper nouns with a capital lettter.

If you want Infantry tell your recruiter and stick with it.
If they are still going to railroad you into some bone job that you don't want, you can rebadge at Harrogate very easily.
In the 2nd/3rd term you will have the chance to change.
In Ph1 and Ph2 training you can re-allocate (Not transfer much easier and only takes 1 piece of paper and an interview) to whoever you want provided you have the GTI and grades, seeing as you want Infantry no problems.

Only thing you need to do is stick to your guns!!

Which Infantry Regiment do you want to join?
