My son is looking for a career in the military and having served i the Army myself i have discouraged him from doing this as i feel he would have more to show for what i hope will be a long career. My question is that the website shows the NO formal qualifications are needed fo an AET. Is this correct as for the same trade in the REME they require GCSE's in maths and english. My son unfortunately has only a grade D in english but all his other grades are fine. His low grade in english was due to his dyslexia which was detected late in his school career but he has now overcome this whilst at college. I think i have finally turned him off the idea of the army which was a job in itself as he has been in the Army Cadet Force for the last 5 years. Any help and advice you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
