Accelerated Apprentice Selection Chances

altar

Newbie
Hi all,

I have applied for the Accelerated Apprentice Air Engineering and have been reading around on here for the last few months trying to answer all my questions but I thought I might as well make this post whilst I'm going through the application process.

I've seen conflicting answers to the question of the subscription rates to the AA schemes.
I can appreciate the numbers have probably changed over time, but I recall seeing a post from @Ninja_Stoker saying that AA schemes are undersubscribed and then some newer users saying they've applied but believed their chances were slim due to them being over-subscribed. Does anyone know what the numbers are like for 2019?

I also saw a post saying that 120 UCAS points was what they are looking for in potential AA candidates.
The criteria on the RN website says 48? Is that figure wrong or are the application standards much higher now?

Finally I'm making the assumption that for AA roles the emphasis is on the academics and display of knowledge rather than fitness etc
Am I correct to think that?

Any help at all would be much appreciated, sorry If I've repeated questions that have already been answered.

The only people that are qualified to answer you (despite some well meaning advice from people on the forum) are those at your AFCO. Good luck.
