Can someone help?

I'm looking into joining the RAF full time as a weapons technician which requires a minimum of C grades in GCSE maths, science and English language.

It was 23 years ago I took my GCSE's so cant remember and don't have any records, I think I have B in maths, double C in science and double D in English.

I do have a level 5 diploma of higher education in natural sciences from the Open Uni (240 points).

Would the diploma out way the need for the GCSE's or would I need to retake English language at GCSE?

Thanks.

Ask the RAF but I would expect you to need to get GCSE English LAnguage.

I emailed the recruitment team and their response was:

"The qualification from the open university should cover you but it may be better to wait until the AFCO offices re opens and they can confirm"

AFCO's are close at the moment due to Covid-19 lockdown so I will update here once I've spoken to someone.

Copy and paste your question into the Armed Forces forum - there is a RAF Recruiter called Adam answering questions there.
