Discussion in 'REME' started by martain, Jul 30, 2009.

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:

  2. You need the GCSEs unless you gained other related qualifications (such as an engineering aprenticeship) after school, then you may have a chance.

    If not you don't have a sniff at VM I'm afraid.
  3. Quals or no quals, I reckon the REME may have second thoughts about someone who can't even spell their own name.

    Without the basic qualifications behind you, most (pretty much all) trades in the REME are closed to you. The reason for this is that by having a certain standard of education already passed, shows you are potentially capable of passing the course in front of you (and are therefore not going to waste both your or the Armys time).

    I'd suggest getting the necessary GCSE's you require, through night school / Learn Direct / whatever, then reapplying.

  9. guess not then is it possible to get around thegcse requirements i have two city and guilds for motorcycle maintenance ifthey mean anything isaw somewhere the possibility of joining reme just on barb score or is this not possible
  10. Dear Martain,Do not listen to these people, they are out to trick you. Only I can give you the success you crave. This will however come at a price. Please pm me with the details of your payment of 20,00 quid and I will return the details of my offshore account in the Cayman Islands. Alternatively, call the recruiting centre and they will give you the advice you need for nowt.
  11. It's worth asking at the careers office about the C&Gs, the worse they can do is say no after all.

    I would say you have two ways of becoming a VM (if that's what you really want). These are:

    - Go away and get the GCSEs pronto, given your age.

    - Join up as another trade and after a few years transfer in.

    The second option is the most difficult as your chosen capbadge will not be keen to see you go, having gone to all the trouble of training you.
  12. Take heed of what Spaz said.

    As can be seen his electrical skills are second to none :D

  13. What about going armoured corps then going down the advanced driver route??
