NO! they check it on a system. Also is this because your thinking, if you fail one, you can do the other?

Please ignore any "advice" posted by either of these O2 Thieves - we have a couple of AFCO Advisers on here (Supermario and Ninja_Stoker) who will no doubt give the official answer accordingly, in due course.

Yes you can. I've not done it, but being in the TA I have known colleagues apply for the regular army and navy at the same time and then chose one of them. Another did the same with Navy and RAF, and chose the Navy.

Technically there is no legal reason why not, however it costs about £7,500 to process successful candidates to join the Navy & (for some obscure reason) the Army nearly double that. Often you maybe told it isn't possible or that you must only apply for one or other because it questions your motivation - if your motivation is questionable, you can be knocked back.

To be honest we don't particularly like it as it entails a lot of nugatory work for one or other service & no part of selection is interchangeable with the other service, so you have to complete all elements of both.

Common sense would dictate that you aim high with regard the appropriate recruiting tests, then see which job is suited to you & go forward with that, pausing the other application with the option to continue if things don't work out. For the Navy, the clock starts with regard waiting times to join from when you pass the Recruiting Test.

Be aware we sometimes get "serial applicants" who apply for everything but join nothing - at best they are simply time wasters, to put it politely.

When was the last time I tried giving advice about anything other than the RT, interview or some other aspect of selection that I had been through? Bell wipe :roll:

I really must protest at the use of the term mong, as it is offensive to people with Down syndrome to impute their intellect sinks quite so low. I suggest the term, in "honour" of some of the dimwitted postings on another thread, to refer to these posts as Leo-tards, after Chico's oppo Leo.... :twisted: :D :wink:
