Yeah I think you will need qualifications to get in, and once you get them I don't see why you won't stand the same chance as everyone else

You won't stand the same chance as everyone else because it's going to be very difficult to explain to a board of fairly harsh interviewers why you didn't go to school. You may be able to get the requisite qualifications, but what did you do with your time when you weren't in school? Why weren't you in school?

The RAF likes intelligent, hard working people with a lot of initiative. As long as you've got the qualifications you can apply, but how are you going to prove you're willing to stick with flying training (which costs in excess of £5M per fast jet pilot right now) when you couldn't be bothered with something as simple as school?

You don't have to explain it to me, I'm not interviewing you. However, you WILL have to explain it, in some depth, to the board members at OASC. Why did your sister stop? Why did that mean you had to stop? What did your parents say? What did you do instead?

They will ask you all this, so be prepared.
