The level of FS qualifications you need to achieve depend on the trade you are applying for; as, RAF Police, you will need to pass the Level 1 FS tests in Mathematics and English.

Even if you have other qualifications in Mathematics and English (like GCSE/SCEs), you will still have to take and pass the FS Mathematics and English tests. Further information will be available from your local Armed Forces Careers Office.

Additional requirement: You must have a Full UK driving licence.
