Notes:

  • These are single-Service estimates, not official statistics. It relates to people who were accepted into RMAS and BRNC with sub-totals for those who had attended independent schools.
  • As per Defence Statistics policy, figures have been rounded to the nearest 10 with numbers ending in 5 rounded to the nearest multiple of 20 to avoid bias.
  • Where rounding has been used, totals and sub-totals have been rounded separately and so may not equal the sums of their rounded parts.
  • Rounding is necessary, as a means of disclosure control and the preservation of anonymity; it also improves the clarity of output and conveys an appropriate level of precision to users.
