So after my first post saying I was worried I was going to fail the army medical It has came back as a fail. So basiclly i come from a *****y background. I lost my nan to cancer that I lived with then moved into my dads at 14, Lost him to a heroin overdose at 16 and lived on my own since 16. I am now 19 years old and was living a risky lifestyle until I started training for the army, Ive been training for a year. Changed my lifestyle and choices and set my heart to joining and getting in.

I was invited to a event, taster days for Catterick. I went for 4 days and when I was there I received this. This put a massive downer on me there but I still carried on and smashed all the events

I had the best shooting on the DCCT virtual range. I was clearly one of the stronger ones with the right mental attitude for Ifantry and becoming a solider. I was speaking to a few boys there and they were saying to appeal it. I've got a appointment with my GP to see what's on my record and see if I can argue it somehow.

As a matter of urgency, get rid of your personal information from that post.

It had your full name and other personal details.

Regardless, you got the advice in the letter. It said you can appeal of you think your medical information was incorrect or mistaken, and you can prove it.

If you can get a medical professional to say that your records are inaccurate, then you can appeal. If not, then not sure what you're asking for.

And sorry, but this means precisely nothing and wouldn't have any bearing whatsoever on any appeal decision.

So after seeing my GP he has agreed to write a letter of support to say it was Conjuactives and not Keratitis in 2015. That means I've only had the one episode of Keratitis in 2012. So does this mean I can get in now?

It means you've got grounds to appeal the original decision, but nobody here can say whether that means you'll get in.

All you can do is keep on their case as hard as you can! It's capita and I remember my experience when I was in the process 4 years ago, they frankly had (and still do) less of a clue than a badger flying a plane so all you can do is be persistent, ring them daily if you have to!

It states in the JSP950 your allowed one episode of Keratitis. So I'm sure a letter from my doctor explaining it was a form of Conjuactives then that should be fine.
