Forum has been helpful, made an account to get stuck in.
Welcome ! Are you in the application process ?
Nope, not yet, still in full time education.
Don’t join till you gain some life experience first, unless you truly know you can commit to a lifestyle that pushes you beyond your own limits.
And that limit I can imagine you’ve not gone past yet. Although I don’t know your limit, so I advise you to really get some insight a look at life and potentially getting a good idea about everything the lifestyle offers. Hope that helps.
Welcome. At your stated age of fifteen the world is your lobster. Take a good browse through the information on the forum. The search function can help you find lots of specific answers.
If at school or college, make it work for you. You don't require academic qualifications to enlist as Other Rank but without the basics promotion prospects are limited. Other opportunities at college might include The Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
Don't be anxious to focus on weights in the gym. Use your running shoes for their designed purpose. And take advantage of general sports facilities at your college.
Best of luck.
Jump feet in mate!
Thanks for the words of advice, it's appreciated, I plan on joining at 21 for the aforementioned reasons along with a couple of other things. Would you recommend this, or perhaps a different age? Thanks again.
It's difficult to give you such a recommendation because we don't know your circumstances. Take a look at this recent thread. Some interesting opinions expressed:
Thanks. Sorry for the ambiguous question
Don't apologise. Any questions? Just ask away. It's the reason this forum exists.
But as stated it's difficult to give anyone a recommendation because two peoples' exact circumstances are seldom alike.
