Hi guys, If anyone has any advice for the following problem I'd be very grateful! I intend to apply to the navy for direct graduate entry as a logistics officer, but I'm having problems providing evidence of my A-levels in the format they will accept (I'm sorted for GCSEs and my degree). My careers officer has insisted that I must provide one of the following: (1) The original A-level certificates; or (2) A letter from my college confirming my results. To be frank, I have no idea where my A-level certificates are, or if I even bothered to pick them up at all (yes, I see the irony of being disorganised when I want to be a logistics officer, but I got my A-levels a long time ago). However, this has not been a problem for me in higher education or employment until now. The usual procedure in this situation is to contact one's exam board(s) for a statement confirming one's grade(s). This is sufficient for 99.999% of employers, but my careers officer insists that it's not good enough for the navy. It struck me as odd that a letter from my college would suffice when an official statement from the exam board would not, but I decided to humour the careers officer by asking my college to provide one. Unfortunately, they were unable to bring my records up because they've changed their computer system since I was there, so this was not an option either. I contacted the navy's main recruitment line, and unfortunately they were unable to offer much guidance on the point. They seemed to be suggesting that it's ultimately down to what my careers officer is willing to accept and that I should explain my position to him, but I don't think he's prepared to budge, even though I explained to him that I could not have gone on to do my degree or barrister training otherwise. Is there an official policy on what the navy will and will not accept as proof of my qualifications, or is it really just down to what any given careers officer thinks? If it's the latter, do you think it would be a good idea to try a different careers office? Or do you have any other suggestions? It just seems a bit silly to be unable to apply when I'm really keen on this career and I have more than enough qualifications for the role.
