Medical exclusions

Can anyone give me an indication as to the likelihood of being admitted into the army if i have previously had epilepsy. to be more exact, i have had 1 fit when i was 11ish, went on meds til 16 then stopped em, and have been fine ever since. im now 21 so for TEN years i ve been fine.

im allowed to drive (though my renewal is a bitchin 5 years...) so feel i should be fine to join. But im trying to find out if i should even bother with the recruitment or not. i asked my GP and he was shite all use, just blabbed that he would pass on my records and make a recommendation to recruiters, but didnt indicate if it would be +ve or -ve...

Does it make a diff if i want to join as an officer straight away?

thanks for any help
Recruiting Office should be able to tell you the definitive answer, for most things its free of symptoms/medication for 3 or 4 years IIRC, but the Medical/Recruity guys on here should be able to tell you more info
