Im in a bit of a confused state and any help would be greatly appreciated. I have wanted to join the army from a young age and the older I got I pretty much became the only thing I wanted to do. Parents weren't happy about the idea and have tried to push me down the route of officer and I am now confused if it would be right for me. I got my A-level results yesterday Two Cs and a D, I hated college and it was a real fight to stay motivated to finish it, but then again I hated doing my GCSEs, not the best by any means but I got what is need for the entry requirements for RMAS. I have done the AOSB briefing and got a CAT 1, I am not worried about not meeting the standards required, what will be will be if Im not right for the job then that life. The more and more I look in to what my role as an officer would be it starts to sound more and more boring. I was hoping to join as an infantry officer (would ideally like to see some action and actually fight) but I am now unsure if the job would live up to my expectations. From what I have been told from serving personnel and what the ACA (army careers advisor) has said I think personally I would prefer to take the solider route as I would prefer to do what an infantry solider does. Basically I would rather be fighting rather than organising the fight. Would joining as a solider give me what I wanted or have I got the wrong idea of what I would be doing as a officer?
