I have been in the TA for over two years now and love the Army. I am transferring to become a regular soldier and just waiting for my date to start basic training. After speaking to my brother he mentioned going in as an Officer, I did consider it when I started the process but didnt think it would be for me. I have since spoken with one of my mums friends, a Major who has further put the idea of going for Officer Selection into my head. Now that I am so close to joining as a regular soldier if I were to switch my application to one for Officer, would I have to start the whole process from scratch, e.g. medical etc or could my military files be flipped over and I go directly to the interview, ASOB stage of the process? If I cant do this, once I am at Pirbright can I ask to try for Officer Selection there? Have any of you gone from Regular soldier to Officer while serving ot training or know that you can change your mind when so close to getting a start date for basic? I am set on a career in the Army; I just wanted to explore all options. Sorry for the length of this message.
