1.3V Stall,

Five "O" Levels, including Maths and English, and a bit of hand-to-eye co-ordination at OASC at the age of 18, was the sole foundation to climb the greasy pole and ultimately run the air force.

And that's where the RAF is: fecked'
I think that you will find out if you look through the records that many of those with 5 O levels went on to become Exceptional Aviators. It was left to those who went to Sleaford Tech and did minimal flying go on become the leaders of the 90s, 00s and 10s.

Very few Direct Entrants ever had aspirations to become Air Ranked Officers. Most would have been content to become a Squadron Commander and/or leave for pastures new.
