Hi, firstly i'd like to say hi to everyone on here, i figured i'd join the forums as i'd found so much information useful to me before i took my psychometric and wanted to become part of the forum. Anyway, i originally began my application with the idea being that i would become a medical assistant (submariner) and hopefully becoming a comissioned medical services officer. Which coincidentally would be the route my dad took and is currently following. However, i took my psychometric test a couple of days ago thinking i'd pass it and would continue with that. Until they told me that with the result i got i should consider applying as an officer as i did so well. Obviously that is the route i want to take but my a-level results weren't great and i ended up with 3 d's in not very academical subjects (2 art subjects and P.E). They've said i can go for it and chances are i will, i just wanted to know some more information about the AIB and what else joining as an officer entails, you guys seemed very knowledgable so i thought i'd ask you all for some advice. What do i need to know and how does it differ from a ratings application?
