Older than some Officer Entry

I’m looking for some advice.

I’m 27, had a career in industry that shares a lot of similarities to the role an officer would play.

I’m being told that education eligibility is strict to 3 Alevels and that anything else is not taken into consideration. Using my best results I’m just short but add the 4th Alevel im over the required amount in terms of UCAS.

Do I join as the old bloke, as a soldier and hope on late entry or do I forget about it as in reality is a pipe dream and crack on as a soldier.

If anybody has heard about similar stories please share.

Thanks in advanced

I don't know if it's too late to reply to you pal, but I'd say go for it if you're still considering Officer route.

I'm applying for it myself and I'm also lacking on the educational achievement side somewhat. If that is the case for you too they might offer you an Education Waiver which I am in the process of completing.

All they can say is no at the end of the day and then you can still join in the ranks if you're still keen.

Good luck!
