Not done it myself as it wasn't applicable to me but if it's like NAMET it's not a brain stretcher. Your ambition is to be PO gunner?
I'd set your sights (pun intended) higher than that.
Just for for info, as of this month you don't need to have GSCE (A -C) in English and A.N.Other to be qualified for WO1 anymore.
Just to add, get the LANTERN out of the way at Raleigh, one less thing to think about when you're in the fleet.
Only Complete butt ******* idiots fail at Raleigh, if you can barely read, write, take your iPod into inappropriate situations, you'll make it into the fleet, where you can do untold damage to what was once a fine and professional navy. Don't worry about adding up and down (subtraction), I'm sure an over worked, demoralised, unappreciated Senior Rate will sort that doozy out for you.
You do put in your preference to which warfare sub branch you'd like to go. However yes sometimes you do get streamed for example as a Golly (EW) or Tazape (UW).
This is changing slowly as the warfare branch is now almost full circle and heading to how it was when it was the Operations Branch (pre warfare title).
It is easily possible to be selected for your LH rate within 2-3 years in the Warfare Branch. But that's down to the individual.
******* hell Mac, you really are becoming a bitter man:cussing:. I don't remember you WE's being too overworked on the sausage (or any ship for that matter, unless uckers counts as work of course).
