  1. Wondering if I could be a Warfare Officer

    I'm wondering how competitive joining the RN as a Warfare Officer actually is?
    My GCSEs were not too great, but I did manage to pass English language, literature and Maths all at grade C and ended up leaving with a total of 11 GCSEs. However, I didn't manage to pass Science or geography, will this ruin my chances completely of joining?

    I'm planning on going to University and studying Business & Marketing/ Advertising, just in case all else fails and have a back up plan.

    But realistically, what are my actual chances of being selected and going onto training.

    P.S I'm pretty certain I will be able to manage achieving the 180 UCAS points they ask for

  2. Now, I'll admit to having been outside for a couple of years or so, but I'm pretty sure one cannot join up as a Warrant Officer!!

    Did you possibly mean Warfare Officer? Made me giggle though.
  3. Haha sorry. I haven't slept in nearly 24 hours! But yes you are correct Warfare officer.
  4. Welcome to Rum Ration, CJ.

    With 5 GCSEs including English and Maths and 180 UCAS points, you should be OK vis-a-vis the academic requirements.

    The main hurdles you will face are those which face all candidates for Warfare Officer.

    You will need to reach a minimum score in all four sections of the psychometric test:


    Pass a medical.

    Run 2.4 km in an acceptable time.

    Pass a Sift Interview with the Area Careers Liaison Officer.

    Pass the AIB with a good score which puts you in the running when candidates who have passed the AIB are being selected for a place at BRNC:


    If you can navigate the above, you stand as good a chance as anyone else.
