Hey everyone, I just got back from my British Army Insight Course done by the Rifles' and I loved it, everything about it, I didnt want to leave. Now, while I was there we had tuition on different career moves and trades within the army and one of the Staff Sergeants mentioned AFC Harrogate, which I believe is like a junior entry for 16/17 who want to become soldiers with extra tuition until they hit 18? Anyway, I've been looking into it since I've got home and I really want to apply for it, I'm 16 and I reside within the Rep. of Ireland. I've got two problems but: 1). I finished my Junior Cert last year (which is the equivalent of the UK'S GCSE's) with 9 honours and 3 pass, how will that convert to such and such or how will it be graded if I apply to AFC Harrogate? 2). My parents, they are against me joining any sort of army, and it was a wonder that I was able to go to that Insight Course for a week, legally am I allowed to apply myself, or will my parents have the final say (no) on the matter? -Thanks!
