You will need your 180 UCAS points, as it says.

You can see here how many points are allocated to each qualification:

http://www.ucas.ac.uk/students/ucas_tariff/tarifftables/
so what do you suggest i do if i want to be an officer, since im not going to 6th form or anything
Oh - that's a bit puzzling - your profile says:

"interested in joining navy after 6th form, probably Communications Technician or Marine Engineer".

You need to find a way of doing qualifications from the UCAS list I linked to which garner you 180 UCAS points. If 6th form isn't for you, you might prefer a college at which you could do A Levels.

When did you sit your GCSEs, by the way?

OK then, WYF, one thing you need to do is work out what you are going to do with yourself for the next 12 months. If you are certain about going for Officer, you need to get on to a course which will get you 180 UCAS points or at least start you off in that direction. If you are opting for Rating entry, you will have to wait a minimum of twelve months to start Basic, so you need either college or a job while you are waiting.

Have you been in to see your local RN Careers Advisors yet?

WYF

Did you talk this option through with the CA?

Have you definitely decided not to stay for the 6th form?

As you are quite young, I was wondering whether you had talked the various options open to you with your Mum/Dad?
