    And why should that make any difference? If you're going to do something, you might as well do it well. After all, you never get a second chance to make a first impression...
    Im confused as to wether this is banter or you're trying to personally attack me. I fear the latter?

Obviously i can write pretty basically on here as its a forum not a dissertation
    All fixed. It explains your reasons for writing like a complete penis.

    Might be an idea to change your username as well if it is your real name? This site can be helpful for info but it is also at the end of the day 'unofficial' and it is not just serious all the time. I reckon it is because after a simple comment about your English you reeled off reasons you were actually awesome at it. Must have been annoying to fail by 2 marks, but rules are rules unfortunately, and no one can really say anything to change that. As ninja said, either join as a rating, try again when you can for officer or find a different career; not any other options really?

    It's a military forum. You'll get shit regardless. You came across as rather arrogant yet write like a three years old.

    Are you really keen on joining up. Not rhetorical.

    yeah i just put my name because i couldnt be bothered to put anything else. It's ok though because i wont be coming on here all the time. I only reeled off my english history as i think 3 people were criticising me for the most minor of grammatical mistakes. But yeah like you were saying i will definitely be trying for officer again, im sure i can get those two marks.

    Based on your performance and behaviour so far, you'll go far. Although not far enough for some of us...

    Relevant how..? Not a rhetorical question.
