Evening Ladies and Gents, Well I have been sitting and pondering about this for a while as a future career choice for me, but I have an issue; would I have a greater chance of passing officer selection procedures if I have been to University? Not on the fact of I would have a degree but on maturity and "life experience". I am currently in my first year of A-Levels, so there is no great haste in my decision making, but I am not overly keen on the idea of going to University especially because of the costs and dept that follows. Also, would a career as a Royal Marines Officer be a good career if I was to later choose to leave the Royal Marines and become a civilian Police Officer? Replies will be much appreciated, Kyle.
