It's impossible to say what your chances are, you are far too far away from the time where you are the right age, have the right qualifications, have demonstrated the aptitude, have the experience etc.

Join the cadets and see if you enjoy the insight you will get on the lifestyle, and work hard at school, because your academic performance will have to be outstanding to get into medicine.

There's more about it here. Basically, you need to be qualified and registered as a doctor. If you join cadets, activities such as station visits/summer camps should be used as an opportunity to learn more about the RAF, but for an officer role you need to be taking on responsibilities that show you have leaderahip potential; inside and outside of school, it's been involved in organising events, sports captaincy, prefect etc. As already said, early days, but you can start getting some valuable skills and experience now that will do you good whatever job you apply for.

Hi

As has already been advised, you're still a very long way off being able to apply for the role you want to do in the RAF. When you're completing your A levels you should start to have a look at the possibility of getting a scholarship for your medical degree etc. But you have time to get to that point. Keep your eye on the RAF Recruitment website to check on the entry criteria etc in case things change in the future. But for now focus on your education and activities that will give you leadership and teamwork experience.

Kind regards
Adam

Look at the medicine forums elsewhere on here about how to get in to study that. The RAF will come later down the line.
