Hi, I'm looking for a bit of advice really, I've made the decision to join the regulars (I'm currently in the TA) and I've decided to go for the Royal Engineers. I've got my heart set on Surveyor or Design Draftsman, however the recruiter said that I will be shadowing as I don't have a C grade science GCSE but got a double D. I've checked the army jobs website but it states that the only qualification you need are 3 GCSEs in Maths, English and one other. I've got 7 GCSEs at a grade C or higher and 4 A-levels, I got 71 on the BARB test and level 2 on the numeracy and literacy tests. My 1.5 mile run time is around 9.20 If I go for these trades will I be at a disadvantage because I'm shadowing? Or will I stand the same chance as anyone else?
