transferring

Discussion in 'Professionally Qualified, RAMC and QARANC' started by smeagle, Jul 12, 2008.

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. I've been in the army for 7 years now and am interested in transferring to RAMC as a radiographer. On your corps website it says there are options for mature students without a-levels but the bloke i spoke to said i can't do it without. I have got shed loads of UCAS points but all from engineering NVQs gained in the army. Anyone know any different from what i have/ have not been told?

    Any help would be appreciated
    Cheers

    Ordinarily you need three A Levels in appropriate topics (not art, home economics or whatever) for entry to radiography training. You will need 220 UCAS points and this usually equates to two Cs and a D grade. However, if you are a serving soldier and you have the minimum UCAS points in an appropriate area (REME and R SIGS typically do well) then your academic profile should be scrutinised by Birmingham City University for suitability. You should do this through your RCMO and SO2 RAMC Rec.
     
  3. And according to our paperwork there are no Radiographer jobs at the moment.

    With respect, cobblers. Radiography is undermanned and are recruiting 4-6 students per year.
     
  5. Eh.

    Look at the top left of the paperwork. Is it dated 2008 or 1994.

    No dramas though he can have mine, I won't bother packing and Foxy has not been round to mop yet, but it should be ok. I'll leave the keys at the front desk. cheers,
     
  6. Wow, what kind of language is that to be using at that time on a Saturday night?


    Smeagle, we truely are very undermanned, I think the expression they use is 'Pinchpoint', or something like that. Anyway, we're all thinking of signing off & starting our own agency anyway. Something like Fronteer Medicine, they earn a packet!! So there will be loads of spaces very soon.

    Good luck xx
