    Hiya guys. I've just visited my first AFCO today after months of reading into a career in the RAF. I am particularly interested in joining as an I intellligence analyst. However.... I don't have grade c in maths, I have a grade D. Will this stop me from getting Into a lot of jobs in RAF. I have 12 gcse s at A - C. 4 A levels. And a second class honours degree in history. Can this not over shadow that D in maths and maybe get the C while I'm in there. Real gutted about this as I feel I am intellectually viable for the jobs I'm interested in.

    Thanks for taking the time to read guys!

    Yes, it will stop you from getting into all of the jobs that require a minimum of maths at grade C. If in doubt though speak to the AFCO, they know best!

    The RAF website has the details of the basic educational requirements in each job. A D in Maths will be a big stopper for you despite any other qualifications. If they say min C, then you need at least a C.
