From looking through the forums much has been made of the issue around non-grad and graduate entrants the long and short seems to be that you will have a chance to catch up due to a younger entry age if you join as a non grad. My problem is that I am very keen to join as a non grad but at the age of 24 (will be 25 before I could get to Sandhurst). I havenât been messing around with my time though I have had a so far successful career in sales and recruitment but have grown tired of office work and all that it entails and want to go and do something that has always been of high interest to me and join the Army as an RE officer. Has anyone decided to do something similar? Am I likely to come up against opposition as this was not my chosen career path from leaving school? Basically is the fact that I am older than most non grad entrants and still a non grad going to create me any problems? Or if I get my head down and show my talents I will be fine. PS. I am aware of pay rates, slower promotion ect.
