I want to join to army as an electrician but don't have the GCSE's needed to do it.
I'm going back to college this September for a year and doing my maths, english and physics GCSE so i meet the requirements to join.
But i don't wana do all this for a year and find out somethings changed, or theres no spaces.
I was wondering if its possible to reserve a definite spot doing the job i want to do in the army or does it not work like that?
im asking this because i dont want to waste another year of my life trying to get in (just done first year electrician but isnt enough to get in)

(editted for the guy below, i hope it doesnt seem confusing now) :)

No is the answer

Barb basic skills and medical are all valid for a year so do them now and when you finish your half way there already.

What's the guarantee you pass you exams?

A place could be reserved for you, stop someone qualified from getting in and then you nose dive - no place for qualified bloke and you're still not ready.

I'm not suggesting you will fail (and hope you don't), but that is why jobs have required qualifications - to help reduce the number of applicants to a managable level.

Every man and his dog wants to go SAS, but do you think I have a place reserved for me, waiting for me to do selection, that means they are a man short waiting for that day. Nope.

do the BARB and GTI tests, get a list of trades, tell them you are on the course and they will say "get the grades, come and join then/join the waiting list to join the job then".

Good luck fella.
