Hi lads, Not my sphere of expertise so I thought I'd ask those who know. I have a nephew who wants to join up as a VM, straight forward enough you might think but problems are as follows: 18 months ago his mate was riding round on a stolen motorbike and he had a go on it. He got nicked and charged with handling stolen goods. This is now spent and I'm told that he's ok on this front. Quals: No GCSE's. He was in hospital when the exams were supposed to be taken so ended up with nothing. He subsequently got a job and never got round to sitting them (he's 20 now). Positives: he has C&G's in mechanicing 1,2 & 3 which he took at college under his own steam. He wants to join as a REME mechanic and nothing else. My question therefore is simply what advice would you give? I've warned him about the selection centre and that they will try and steer him into whatever is the most undermanned whether that be blanket stacking or oiling helicopters.
