I've been thinking of a career in the Army for some years now, im 16 still yet to do GCSE however could start applying for the Army now, only as a soldier of course. A few mates have started applying as soldiers. And one has decided to go down the Wellbeck route of becoming an officer, however i'm not fancying that nor am I getting straight A's / 7's. Family all say I should go for Sandhurst after college and possibly university most likely due to looking at the financial side of it which I don't fault them for doing so, however at the moment and I've been wondering what a Officer's life and role is like in comparison to a Soldiers. And also is it better be a Soldier than Officer in some regiments than others. So if anyone could help answering it would be greatly appreciated.
