Your National Record of Achievement is obviously less valid as the years pass, however it can also demonstrate your previous achievements which, together with your certificates of achievement since then, may illustrate your maturity & reliability. Favourable work references, general productive life experience, and further evidence to support your application, will in total aid your application.

If you have no evidence of achievements at school or beyond, then there's not a lot you can do if the interview is tomorrow.

The interview is to establish whether you are worth investing tens of thousands of pounds in training or whether you are viewed a high training risk- hence the suggestion that references, testimonials, certificates of achievement, academic qualifications help strengthen the verbal case you present at interview. As long as you come across as a viable applicant & can back-up any claims, then you will not be unduly disadvantaged against those arriving for interview similarly placed.

cheers mate

found my national recorded of achievement, its got certificates from amy days i went too, when i played rugby at the arms park (millenium stadium ) the programe from me in it, certificate of acceptance for a trannie course for doing dentistry, 4 certificates in school for attendance and other things and two written refrences from a police sargent about me and my background etc from 2000 when i applied for the army.... so i think that should show them what i was kinda like in school
