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.

Martin.

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.

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.

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.

Marvin Martian.

If you are 26, what have you been doing for the last decade, that suddenly you need to join the Army? You say you desire the REME, particularly the VM trade, but will gladly give it up just to enlist because you are in a rush to join instead of getting qualified first?

I smell something. And it's all over this thread.

What about going armoured corps then going down the advanced driver route??
more info on this please
You join either a tank or FR reg, do a couple of years, go through the ranks and jobs; driver, then gunner, then operator, the commander. Throughout this time you will have a fair amount of time changing tracks, doing before and after use maintenace and carrying out some basic fault finding on the tanks.

You then have the opportunity to specialise in either gunnery, signals or become an advanced driver( specalist maintainer) . Someone who is trained to a standard above an average trooper. Someone who acts as a bridge between the basic maintenace carried out by the reg and REME, someone who undergoes a vast amount of training on fixing CR2 or CVRT. As a member of REME I was suprised how i depth their knowledge was.

Pros
- frontline action with some great regiments
- you still get to do loads of hands on maintenance

Cons
-Your not REME.
