You only need to have completed 6 course in grade 10 (british columbia)....

I finally received my GED. I took it later september and boy that felt good.
If you do not have an opportunity to finish highschool due to exceptional circumstances, the GED will let you get by. I am so very glad I finally got mine, a chapter in my life finally closed.

However I strongly suggest finishing highschool. REGARDLESS of any circumstances. Do whatever it takes to get that last credit you need to get your grade 12. Put on your silly robe, and say you graduated.
It will make a huge difference in your life, more than you can possibly know at age 15 or 16.

Best of luck in your efforts.  :cdn:

Sirukin:
I hear ya. My attendance became an issue in Grade 11. I thought myself too mature to be in highschool. Funny how that works out.
Anyway.. honestly if I could do it over again I would trade all my life experience for 2 more years in school. My life would be so much different right now.

Stay in school kids. There's a reason why everyone says it.

Just for the record, I e-mailed the recruiter last night and they said you need minimum of 15 credits to get in.

So I always was told that the age to get in is 16 (I am 15 btw). My buddy comes back from cadets one day and says that a colonol told him to apply while he was 15. I thought this nonsense but if a colonol said this. I asked him if it was one of these cadet colonols but he asid it was the real deal. I just want to know wether or not I should get my hopes up  for being able to apply early.
I just wanna be in the army!  :warstory:

To get into the reserve, you have to be atleast 16, with parental consent and have a certain amount of grade 10 credits(if you pass all your grade 10 courses, you got the required school credits).

You can probably pick up a application, but I don't know if the recruiters will do anything with it, they may hold it and than as soon as your of age start processing it/sending it off to the CFRC.

You cannot apply unless you are 16 and have grade 10 completed.
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened

To join the Reserves you have to be 16 with parental permission, and you have to have 15 high school credits... To be honest I wouldn't get your hopes up of applying early. I would wait until about the week before you turn 16, then go to your local recruitment center, and get the application package, fill it out then bring it back when you are 16.
good luck,

Hi everyone - I'm new to this website. I'm 15 years old at the moment and I'm turning 16 March 08. I am debating what I would like to do - Pilot - Ground Infant - Navy. I'm leaning more towards Ground Infantry; What do you guy's think about it? I'm 6'3 and 168 pounds. I will have my grade 10 education very soon so that is not an issue. I just want some other peoples opinions. I was also considering moving to America and joining there armed forces - what do you think?  :warstory:

Until your 18, your going to need your parent's concent for you to enlist, also if you want to be a pilot, your gonna need some post secondary, because thats an officer trade. good luck though!

Correctomundo. Pilot is an officer trade and therefore requires a degree. Even if they open CEOTP again, the minimum is a high school diploma.

Finish high school. (I don't think you can get in without grade 10)

Take classes you like.

That's my advice.

As long as you have 15 credits it doesn't really matter which ones as far as I can tell. They never questioned any of my credits. But you do need your grade 10, so just keep working hard.

Always good to have a fall back plan.  Also, a lot of jobs may ruled out if you don't have a basic working knowledge of Eng/Fr (reading, comprehension, communication), Math, and Technical skills.  The CFAT is based on the average Gr 10 or Equiv curriculum.
