hey, I have just finished university and am looking to join the army. I want to join the paras. I don't know whether to try for Sandurst first or apply straight to the paras and the try and get commissioned after 3-4 years. If I go to Sandhurst I may not be assigned to the paras. Also I heard the selection process for Sandhurst takes ages. What do you think is the better choice? I've started training and am a fast runner and can do about a 12.5 on the beep test. Do you recommend starting boxing as I have heard you need to be able to hold your own in the paras (lots of fights). Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
