Evening all. Just a quick question as I seem to be getting a lot of mixed answers from different people and sources. (Up to Lt. of course) I have heard and in some instances read that a U/Y joining BRNC will follow the same progression route as a non-graduate, grads and non-grads have no differences between their progression any more, U/Y with more than 3 years as a rating will actually join as a S/Lt. and that an U/Y will skip S/Lt. and be promoted strainght from Midshipman to S/Lt. after around 5 years (although that is the statement i least believe!!) Is anyone able to give me any clarification on this? It would be much appreciated.
