I doubt anyone enjoys school when they are there, I miss it.. no responsibilities, was awesome looking back.

And *text deleted*, im not sure, might have some info on the UCAS site as I have no idea if As levels are counted.

Your lucky mate, I'm doing my As levels this year and yeh i hate it as well :biggrin:

I would still finish a-levels, like skippy said for something to fall back onto to, and plus give your more time to train and prove leadership skills ... for example: DOE, Sports leadership etc ...

also thinking about it? if theres about 2000 applicants applying for officer, who are more likely to be accepted, people with As Levels or people with A-levels (not taking into account the people with degrees). I think you would be at a disadvantage leaving after As level ... but thats my opinion.

Good luck with whatever though mate

The Corps are seeking individuals with "stickability". Odds are that if you are interviewed aged under 18, having only completed half your A levels, you will be encouraged by your ACLO to complete them rather than scrape by on the minimum standard.

Those who are older, say completed a degree, may need the AS level entry route to bump-up their UCAS points but if you're under 20 & want to be an Officer then A2's are usually expected.
