  • Officers are the senior managers of the Royal Navy. You will need to have excellent leadership skills and the equivalent of at least 180 UCAS points and five GCSEs (A*-C)/ 5 Scottish Standard Grades (1-3)/ equivalent, including English and maths. Not all courses and qualifications, especially those at BTEC or of a more vocational nature, are suitable for inclusion within this 180 points total. Therefore candidates should seek guidance through their Naval Careers Advisor.
