Hello to the good people of ARRSE, I was wondering if you could help me with a slight problem I have. I'm a young wide eyed and naive university student soon to jump into the bottomless pit of employment, to which I looked for a career in the army. Scouring every scrap of information available off many a website I decided upon the Int Corps as the one that appealed the most I made contact with the AFCO and eventually got a one-to-one appointment with an officer army careers advisor. Up until this point everyone who I had spoke to told me "yes, fine, the corps is great, sign up, no problems". Upon walking through the door the ACA told me plainly that I would simply never be an Intelligence officer because I was not strong enough acdemically. I am an average grade student and speak another language. I am aware as the title implies that intelligence is required, but is there no other way to be an officer?
