    Have you passed AOSB yet?
    No I haven't applied officially yet, considering applying for a Masters instead. I popped into the careers office and had a chat with them there and I've been doing my research over the years but will see for now. Still have some time to decide what I want to apply for.(I went through the RAF application process to get to the CBAT stage - I'm just exploring the two officer pathways)

    Just for clarity so I can try and offer advice to the best of my knowledge, you've had one attempt at AAC pilot aptitude but were unsuccessful? And you have no formal application in the pipeline to join the Army at present?

    (With regards to the actual question in the title of the thread, the 'pass' for AAC pilot was 100 not too long ago).

    No sorry, I've had one attempt at RAF but didn't pass unfortunately. I did pass for AAC if it's 100 though.

    No formal application to the Army just yet.

    Cool, well I'm not sure what they've told you at the careers office but I will take it on assumption they are only armed with what they have on pamphlets and posters in the office. In case they haven't mentioned the various routes available to get onto the Army Pilot Course, it is possible to pass aptitude and medical before you have even passed AOSB (slightly bizarre way of doing business but has been done), the same goes for getting grading out of the way before you even start at Sandhurst. A positive as it means you won't have to attend a condensed (therefore slightly higher intensity) grading course during your first block leave between junior and inters when you'll be so sick of the Army you will just want to go home and catch up on sleep!

    Does that mean you could also potentially have a place in the AAC before attending Sandhurst, or do you still have to go through the regimental interviews at (I think) week 28 of training?

    You will still sit the Regimental Selection Boards in your intermediate term as you will require a second choice if you are unsuccessful with the AAC.

    So if you failed grading before you even start Sandhurst, could you be offered a place as an infantry officer?

    Of course. Grading is only carried out by those wishing to join the AAC. I'd like to think other Arms wouldn't use a fail at grading as a weakness either, as that just shows a lack of understanding as to what grading is looking for with regards to military aviation in particular.*
