I am hoping to join the royal navy as an officer and I require 180 UCAS points. Unfortunately my A levels are awful as I was concentrating on keeping my dads business running whilst he was hospitalised with cancer at the time. I have great GCSEs and later did a foundation degree which I passed with a merit and is a higher qualification than A levels (dont think it counts towards UCAS points though). Which leaves me in a pickle. I have spoken to a recruiter but he knew nothing more than I do. Would they let me become an officer? Anyone know????
