I have been advised to try and become an officer from the careers office. But I am not sure I would pass the RCB because I think I am not "officer material". - so that idea is flawed. I have a few A Levels and currently studying for a degree but I am dropping out for the Army. I was looking to start out as a soldier in the REME as a vehicle mechanic, if in a few years time when I have experience could I try for the commission then or would it be really difficult? I am looking at the Army as a long term career rather than just doing the minimum. Thanks for your help.
