Hello, I am awaiting my first formal interview with our local recruitment officer, then hopefully an AOSB in the next couple of months. My education has been a little patchy, as I was - alas - a bit of a tearaway when I was younger - being expelled from a couple of schools (setting fire to things and graffiti were particular hobbies as a nipper). I was never a bad kid, just a little mischievous - Iâve been into the great outdoors from a young age and was one of our yearâs top Duke of Edinburgh teams. I also did army cadets for a year and separately won a trophy for being the best shot in my school year with a 2.2 rifle â and managed a reasonable set of GCSEs. B Mathematics A English Lan. B English Lit. B Physics C Chemistry B IT C History C Art I then took a variety of subjects whilst getting into quite a lot of trouble at 6th form college. I came out with: BTEC National Diploma in Music Performance (3 merits) C in A-Level in Politics B in AS Level Film Studies I believe a D in geography AS level (didnât go to many lessons) I then went to university at Plymouth and studied International Relations and Politics â I got a high 2:1 in my first year, then got really into journalism â working for a large news agency supplying to the daily nationals and was nominated for a national journalism award. I stopped taking my studies quite so seriously and focused very much on CV building, and my work started getting downgraded for being too âjournalisticâ, which is frustrating considering some of the muppets that would get 1sts because they quoted so many academics texts. So I missed out on a 2:2 by 1.5% and ended up with a third! For journalism this was ok, as theyâre far more concerned with CV and interview â but I had a change of heart and decided I want to apply for Officer training. Although I know this sounds really pretentious, I just thought Iâd mention it in my defence against some fairly substandard grades so far: Iâve been IQ scored between 128 and 135 â and found out in my last year at university that I am also dyslexic, which would have been nice to know earlier. My current affairs are top notch, and I love fitness â although my maths needs some attention. What I need to know is, what about grades? I heard 2 full A levels at grade E and 180 UCAS points are needed. I have one full A level at grade C, a couple of AS levels and a bunch of UCAS points from my BTEC â totalling around 250 points â as well as my degree (although a third). I am confident that I interview well and have the leadership qualities they are looking for, but want to make sure I am eligible with my incoherent mish-mash of pretty piss-poor grades. The easiest way to resolve this would be to convert that Film Studies AS into a full A Level â which would be pretty easy, although time consuming. What do you guys think? Thanks for your time.
