The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
filling in my Q101 form and I want to make sure its 100% correct
Direct Graduate Entry.
Thanks, so for entry as an officer without a degree is there any abbreviation?
Yes it's T.S.
Stands for thick Sh!t!
Is it there an abbreviation?
NCE - Naval College Entrant used to be the old phrase.
I'll try it vanilla and see what happens.
Don't forget that the soup is highly recommended too, RoRo:
DGE - Graduate Entry
Doesn't make much difference from April onwards as start pay, seniority & promotion is the same for all Wafare, Logistics & RM Officer entrants.
UCE - University Cadet Entry is only available for 'Doktors' & Fang Farriers.
DTUS - Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme is just a better off Bursar (£4.5K instead of £1.5K)
Welbeck - same, same, but open to all branches.
Scholarship/Reserved Place - Financially the same as a non-technical bursar.
I'm guessing BRNC is going to see younger entrants now that an 18 year old can join on £24,615 - same as a graduate.
I thought they'd be dropping graduates pay not increasing non-grad's pay.
Will it make much difference if I just put "Warfare" not "NCE Warfare" ? Haven't heard it mentioned before and the AFCO is closed for Christmas for another 2 days.
Just put 'Warfare Officer'. Your educational qualifications will be verified in any case.
Pretty certain under the new system all will join as midshipman, on same pay level.
Separate names with a comma.
