Now I realise I'm probably going to get some backlash for this but here it goes... I'm about to embark on what hopefully will be the process of earning my commission when I walk into my local army careers officer tomorrow and fill out some paper work. That aside however it leads me to being quite curious into how actually selecting your regiment/corps works, so I did a bit of research on COA, I started to wonder exactly what regiments/corps' are the most over subscribed and have the highest failed applicants? (I presume the AGC) But also exactly how over subscribed these regiments/corps' are, it seems to me that every time for example the Paras are brought up they are described as the most oversubscribed regiment, but where do these figures come from? Or is it just assumption? Cheers in advance.
