    Now I am 100% sure I want to join the police at this point.
    Now I am planning on doing my 4 A levels:
    Law
    Business Studies
    History
    and possibly philosophy and ethics.
    I also am hopefully soon be joining the police cadets and have work experience in the summer for 2 weeks.

    Now what I would like to know is it very difficult to join at 18 years of age or is it just as hard as joining at lets say 21.

    Hi I am sure you can become a police officer. My friend is one and he did it after his A levels. Also he is studying at University as well.

    What way do you plan to join? By what way I mean, some police force have the ability for you to become a special constable and after around 200 hours of patrol you can apply to become a full time police constable. Also it depends what force you want to join.
