Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi all,

    i've got my interviews on the 2nd of Febuary but im still not 100% on what i want to do in the army!

    I can apply for any job because of my gcse's and baarb test results which has made it so much harder !

    Before i left A Levels i had my heart set on joining the infantry as an officer but after family issues i couldn't finish the course. As pathetic as it sounds, something at the back of my head is telling me that if i join the infantry from regular ranks ill have more of a chance of getting hurt.

    Other jobs i've been looking at included a RA Specialist Observer and REME Armourer, but im not sure about the waiting list for REME, im guessing its a bit long?

    I was also looking for a job that will give me skills that i can take with me after 22 years, but don't want to be stuck behind a desk!

    Many thanks for any suggestions/replies
  2. By 'getting hurt' do you mean injured in the line of duty or 'hurt feelings' :D :D :D

    ..seriously though, there are risks involved in all trades of the army (soldier/officer alike) and it would be unwise to base your career choice on the likelihood of picking up an injury on operations....youve already said infantry, why not re-apply as a soldier? If its pure soldiering you want then its the only way in my opinion!
  3. hah i mean in the line of duty, thanks for the reply ill take it into consideration
  4. Stupid posts removed, guys you have no idea what your talking about saying what is and isnt right for this chap, you dont understand the word context!

    Remember just becuase you can reply doesnt mean that you should.
