I’m just wondering do GCSE grades affect what rank you can get up to? (Non Officer ranks)

Thank you I’m not planning on getting low grades but was just curious really
Unsure of the details but someone without basic literacy and numeracy qualifications might have to square them away for promotion.

Definitely best to get the basics sorted at school or college rather than having to chew on a crayon while in the job.

It hints at limited mental capacity.
A very small child or someone with undeveloped manual dexterity might not be trusted with a sharp pencil or a pen. Much better to permit them to express themselves with a crayon. Even if they eat it there's no real harm done.
