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. Hi all!

    Im new to this so hope im doing it right.

    Im doing my A-levels atm and tried last year for a sixth form scholarship with the hope to then applying for UCE before goin to uni but I failed the AIB.

    Ive just gone back to my ACLO to get my application back on track but he said they dont offer the UCE anymore!?! Just wondering if this has come into immediate effect or if I was planning on joining BRNC in Sep 2010 its still going?

    Thanks for any advise!

    Yep, UCE's are only available for Doctors & Dentists entering year 3 of their 5 year degree.

    To be honest, it should've been taken off the website over a year ago, but it wasn't announced officialy until June this year after lots of promting....
     
  3. And bear in mind that bursaries are in short supply, too.
