UCAS Points - Officer entry

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by laney1312, Apr 2, 2014.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello all, I was wondering whether anyone knew when the 180 UCAS points 'cut-off' came into effect for Officer entry. It can't have been around for +5 years can it? Anyone know when it changed and from what?

    I have tried to look for this info, but can't find it anywhere, so sorry if previously asked/posted...

    Cheers

  2. It was around when I joined in 1996.

    It used to be 140 UCAS points and changed to 180 UCAS points on 12th Feb 2008 in Recruiting Instruction 06/08, implemented for all Officer applications received after Friday 29th February 2008.
     
  4. Bit vague, that.

    Sorry, from midnight on 29th Feb 2008.
     
  6. There was no Feb 29th in 2008.

    A less vague answer...

    He still forgot the time though.
     
  9. I was hoping for more than one.
     
  10. More than one Feb 29th in 2008, how does that work?

    I imagine Taff is counting bites rather than Feb 29ths.

    Someone had to give him one.

  13. And I thank you for that.

    So, not only am I pedantic, I get a frisson of enjoyment from occasional childishness.

    I am replete.
     
  14. Was it 2359 on the 29th Feb or 0001 on the 1st Mar? We know their Admiraltynesses don't acknowledge 'midnight' as existing, so we need the truth.




    (PS: It may be an exaggeration to say we actually need the truth or even a blatant lie)
