Hi Guys, Excuse me for the newbie question but here goes... I failed my RT on Tuesday as my maths wasn't up to scratch - I managed to pass the other sections with flying colours but I'm afraid my maths gremlins caught up with me. I had been applying as an officer candidate so the requirements were always going to be high. I was given a few choices by the recruiting officer as to what to do next. As you can imagine, I was told to get some tutoring/go on a course and re-apply in 6-12 months. However, one thing I didn't consider at the time was going in as a rating. Just out of curiosity what is the likelihood of me being accepted if I went back and asked if I could join as a rating? Would I need to re-sit my RT or would they be able to pull some strings and allow me to join? I'm very willing to take the step down from Officer as I just want to get into a solid career and I know I have the potential to be promoted in the future. If anyone can give me some sort of advice It'll be greatly received.
