    That really is quite a strange question.

    Depending on what particular aspect of the regular forces you are talking about, It would seem obvious that working as a full time Army Officer will be completely different to going to the TA once a week.

    If you're not familiar enough with how the Regular Army works to figure it out maybe you should start to worry! More to the point you would not have passed selection if you didn't have the slightest clue about Army life.

    In fact I've just checked the Army website and can't seem to find the "Information Systems Officer" job. The nearest I can find is Information Systems Supervisor which is a non-commissioned role and you can't join in that post directly from the street.

    Care to elaborate a bit more?
