Hey lads, Does anyone know what the chances are of gaining a commission if you join as a rating(and what the process is?) Due to a change in the entry requirements (one of my a-levels doesn't count anymore) I'm (hoping on) joining the service as a rating but have always wanted to be an officer and was just curious to my chances! I intend to use the RN learning fund scheme to gain another A-level to make myself eligible to go for officer entry if I'd just walked into the AFCO. Will this help in any way? Sorry loads of stuff there, sorry if it been asked before! p.s im going into warfare...don't know if that matters!
