Was just wondering how hard it is to get recommended for POC after becoming a NCO . My CA said that 30% of officers now were once NCO's. I have heard that it is highly unlikely and difficult to do so. Opinions? Experience? Facts?

cheers

30% of RN Engineering officers were commonly former Ratings (usually Artificers or technicians) but for Royal Marines I'd estimate nearer 20% joined as other ranks.

To be certain of becoming an RM Officer, the only assured route is to join as one from the outset.
