Hi, I am a 17 year old student just finishing my A-levels and I was wondering if I was being realistic in thinking I can get into the AAC as an officer and hopefully a pilot directly after 6th form. In my GCSE's I got A,A,B,B,B,B,B,B,B,C and I am hoping for A,B,C in my A-levels (I know academics arent everything by the way) I am going to Ghana, Africa to work as a volunteer in September for around 2 months to work with and teach the children who can't afford schooling some of the basic skills they will need in adult life. I am doing this for a variety of reasons but hopefully the experience will also help me with the leadership and teamwork skills which are essential for any Armed Forces Officer. Basically, do you think I will have a chance of getting in as a Pilot or am I just dreaming? Oh, I have no medical issues to my knowledge. Cheers, Mike.
