    Hi All
    Thanks for adding me on the forum, I’ve been reading it for a while and there’s loads of good info on here. I’m only 15 so don’t have much life experience right now, but I do know that I want to join the Royal Marines after finishing school next year, so I’ll keep u posted on my progress.

    Good Luck

    15 and already a king. Good effort.

    Best of luck, don’t neglect your education though. The Corps isn’t going anywhere.

    Definitely get some life experience unless you’ve gone through hard times I wouldn’t know. But go and get some further qualifications if you can.

    That being said if you don’t get yourself the worst low paying job you can find, and allow them to whip you around you’ll be able to tackle any obstacle come recruit training in the future and you’ll be able to cope with pressure.

    Welcome to the site.

    Life experience,mental maturity and fortitude are key contributing factors toward achieving success.

    Knowing that is a good starting point, it's not all about fitness but without it, you're going nowhere fast ...literally. ;)

    By life experience, living away from home and looking after yourself, be it in cadet organisations, lengthier school trips & suchlike are a good starting point, as indeed is a bit of work experience along the way.

    Fully endorse the comments about academic achievement - all too often we get school-leavers who mistakenly think the Armed Forces will take anyone, so they can afford to mess-up at school.

    Best of luck to you.
