  1. Hey There,
    I'm looking to join the paras after I finish my A-Levels in the summer, (Insight course in two weeks), and I was wondering wether my a levels would make it easier to get up the ladder? I'm 22 also.

    22 years old and still doing A levels. Cert for paras, no problems!
  3. If you've got 2 or more A-Levels then you're qualified to join as an officer. Worth thinking about but it might not be your bag. If you join as a Tom then academic qualifications count for very little as you have to be selected first for a PJNCO cadre then Junior Brecon etc. etc.
