Hi I'm hopefully signing up in the next couple of months as a recruit. I have good knowledge about what i need to do etc. etc. To cut to the chase i applied for a commission for last years batch but was medically withdrawn on POC and given a 12 month come back so couldn't retake till next May 2008. I was going to join as a recruit if i didn't get in as an officer so basically thought i would try do it the other way round, join as a recruit and then apply for a corps commission after training. i'm 24 at the mo and 26 is the cut off for a commission. What are the chances of me actaully achieving this? I have heard mixed stories, some have said they know people to stay on at lympstone having completed recruit training and then going straight on to officer. Others have said that it will take years of good reports etc. The latter only gives me 2 years.
