Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was just reading the .pdf on mental health and i am a little confused.
    Because i have Autism, ASD to be exact. Now on page 6 it mentions this but im a little confused. When it says this does it mean i can or cant join the army?

  2. Autism makes you ineligible to join
    But check with your ACIO/AFCO
  3. Hmmm ok
    Pretty bummed if so.
    Considering i went down with one of my teachers and spoke to a career advisor.
    Thanks for the help though:)
  4. any grading in PULHHEEMS of '8' is 'unfit for military service'
  5. I guess i shall have to see if i got misdiagnosed.
    If not then new career choice.
  6. Sorry to bring this up again, but will this be for all of the forces or just the army? as i woudlnt mind the Navy or RAF either.
  7. It'll be all the forces.
