Firstly I'd like to say hello to arrse. Currently I'm going through the process of joining up, I'm going for Royal Engineers. My AFCO have told me on numerous occasions that pretty much every job in the Army at the moment (apart from infantry and chef) is full and won't have any intakes with spaces until next april/may. I have a friend who's in the Army and told him what was going on. He told me that AFCO's have a quota to fill and that I could say I wanted to do infantry so I could get into phase1 sooner then just transfer to Engineers when I get to base. Like I said to him if I did do this and wasn't able to change it wouldn't be a massive loss as I want to be combat anyway but it wouldn't be exactly what I wanted to do. Just wondering which one of them are correct? More importantly is it likely that I will actually have to wait until next year to get into phase1? I've heard alot of people saying that there are lots of dropouts for intakes. Cheers in advance!
