Hi Simon,

Although the branch waiting times are listed as a sticky at the top of this forum, you'll find the "specialist" branches such as SBS, recon and STC branch aren't listed due to their "specialist" nature. If you see what I mean.

However, waiting times tend to be short due to both the high failure rate and the continued demand for their expertise.

As I say, there is no direct entry as such, but you really need to go to the Armed Forces Careers Office (AFCO) and enquire directly about available roles in special forces to get an idea of what is open to you.

Best of luck in what you decide.
 
Just looked at STC branch it looks great, do i get better pay for that and would i get my green hat as well thanks do i go to the recruiting office how long is the waiting list

If you ring them up in advance, you can ask to sit in on their Introductory Presentation. Most AFCOs do them on a weekly basis.

Which part of the country do you live in, roughly? I'll post up the link to your nearest AFCO so that you can call them.

By the looks of the above post English GCSE's must be a piece of piss now! Obviously grammer and spelling are not marked any more.
And you also have an A in Geography? Dubi? Is that a new country?
