Being an Army officer is about leading from the front and caring for your soldiers.


Whether it's commanding a platoon of soldiers on operations or helping to build critical infrastructure and rebuild lives after a natural disaster, you will lead a life that is far from routine.

Who can become an officer?

It's qualities, not qualifications that make a great Army officer. You can start your officer training straight from school at the age of 18, however you do need to have:


1)  180 UCAS points (72 for those taking A levels from 2017)

  • Points must come from up to 3 subjects (or 4 Scottish Highers)
  • 2 subjects must be at National level 3 - not including AS levels or General Studies

2)  35 ALIS points

  • Points must come from your 7 best GCSE subjects
  • Or 34 ALIS points from your 7 best SNQ subjects

3)  Be between 18 and 30


4)  Pass the medical and fitness tests


You'll work towards a degree as part of your job as an officer, while earning a great salary at the same time.
