I posted this in the Regular Officer Recruiting page as well as I am going for a commission in the regular army, but any advice is welcome. I am just off the phone after speaking to the ACA. I got a 2Q at Briefing, need to get a qualification bumped up and am on a course to do that at the moment. The exam is in May, and the ACA said the September 2011 intake is already almost full so I am looking at Jan 2012 if I pass MB first time. In the mean time, I have a year to get all aspects of my development to the standards required, which I am looking at from a positive point of view. Would it be worth my time and theirs if I joined my local TA unit? Cheers.
