So if you were to apply to the royal navy without a degree for officer training would you send in your predicted A levels during your final year at school or could you only apply after finishing school. Also what is the difference between applying with and without a degree?thanks any help is much appreciated.

Speak to AFCO.
Typically, if you go through the entire selection process without confirmed a-level grades they will accept you on the basis of your attaining those grades.
There is a mix of people with and without degrees going as Officers in the services. From my experience, it means you have an easier time at the academic side of officer training, that is all.

FWIW graduate army officers used to get accelerated promotion (taking 3.5 years instead of 5 years) for the first two ranks. But the system changed so now graduates aren't treated any differently to non-graduates. I assume it'll be the same for the navy. As above, have a talk to the AFCO.

If there is any way you can do your degree first, I strongly advise you to do so. It will put you in a far better position further down your career path for several reasons.
