Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. i was reading through the navy jobs site, and i'm just wondering, where it says what you need to get in, is it a degree & 180 ucas points, or either one? as i have 150 and wouldn't be hard to bump it up to 180.... and double my pay.

    Thank you
    Andy

    You need he GCSEs & UCAS points, regardless of the degree.

    Minimum contributing qualfication must score at least 45 UCAS points. Non overlapping subjects & UCAS points at AS may not contribute if taken to A2 in the same subject. Normally all UCAS points should be gained within 18 months - but verify via your AFCO.
     
  3. i've got the GCSE's and the ucas points gained from A levels, i have to E's at A level, and a B and E in separate subjects at AS level. whihc gives me 150.... i would easily top up those 30 if they'd let me.

    i'll give them a ring next week and see what they think. it would be nice!

    cheers for the advice

    A2 only accepted grade D upwards, AS grade B upwards.

    Minimum accepted contributing unit must score above 45.
     
  5. I'm guessing they're not in English? ;)
     
  6. Andy, I think your motives for taking a commission are flawed. Also, I think you are retarded.
     
  7. I heard he wants to be a Schoolie as well!

    Apologies for the curt answers previously, I was using a mobile phone with poor reception & kept losing the connection.

    From the A level results listed, you need to "top-up" by 130 UCAS points to reach the minimum requirement of 180.
     
  9. Burn him.....!
     
  10. Thats a fair bit of "topping up"!!

    thank you for the replies though!
     
  11. so you'd turn down twice your salary?.......... and yes for lack of a better word i am.

    Before the world went mad and people could actually failed GCSE's (or whatever they call them today), would those that failed have got a E grade?

    Essentially, the RN considers GCSE's (replaced the GCE O Levels & CSE's) at grade C upwards a "pass" and A Levels at grade D upwards, a "pass".

    The AS level is basically half an A Level in old money & only worth anything if passed at grade B.
     
  14. I tihnk most unis and civvie employers define a pass on the same boundaries
