You can join after sixth form, or get paid a small annual bursary through uni then join after that. If you have a degree you get accelerated promotion, as well as the advantage of tackling some of the training with a bit more life experience and maturity behind you.

Looking at the RAF careers website, or doing a search for 'RAF PILOT' will get you the answer to this question..

Science based subjects will help you a little in sofar as groundschool's concerned, but that's it. You need sharp mental maths skills, and knowing a few physics based things helps you understand aircraft more when pounding through groundschool exams.

However, you're more likely to get selected with good results, so do whatever you like. There aren't any banned subjects. That said some interviewers were famously harsh on people with real Mickey Mouse degrees, but there you go...
