Hey everyone.

i applied for the army over 2 years ago for combat medic. but sadly failed my eye test/medical. i was wondering is it worth trying the TA. i cant be giving up on my dream that easy

both eyes or just one?

the TA does have a more relaxed agenda re medicals (certainly when I used to do them - a unit who do their own like a headquarters unit which has an MO are more likely to be lenient and shade the results) it might also be worth trying A hospital unit as they have a different criteria compared to a frontline reserve unit and are desperate for bums on seats, once you're in then you can move about as every unit struggles to get decent committed medics. see who is in your area then go and chat to the PSIs

dont worry if they move this as it is in the wrong place
