The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
I want to join the TA as an officer, i only have 140 ucas points, are exceptions made?
Nope - unless you have a degree then the requirement is there for a reason.
i see, do you know if NVQ's can count towards it?
For a breakdown on UCAS points check this link:
Tariff Tables | UCAS | UCAS Tariff Table & UCAS Tariff Points
Another strategy would be to take a part time HND and then after completing that then do part time honours year of your degree at a university or college.
Time for completion 2-3 years max.
Good advice given by manpads. Do you also have the requisite GCSE's? A minimum of 35 ALIS points from the top 7 GCSE's which must include Maths, English Language and a science or foreign language at grade C or above
cool thanks for the advice. I was just wondering, as in the job searches on the Army website it says "you should have 240" sounded like there was room for leeway.
sup rec, yeah i have 12 GCSE's 1A 1C rest B's

What in God's name is a Certificate of Personnel Effectiveness? You may as well have a note from your Mum: 'Oh go on, please let him in, he was such a lovely little boy'
Do you have any of the following:
A cycling proficiency badge?
A membership for the Tufty Club?
A Blue Peter Badge (triple points for a Gold one)?
They will all help with entry in the TA.
Failing that, try and get really good at a sport (say maybe Tennis) and win a major Championship (something like Wimbledon) and then the Prime Minister will grant you immunity from entry standards; together with your very own Knighthood.
