My friend managed to get clerical work after seeing the medical board (due to bad knee injury). Can go home everyday.

No effect on future job applications even in govt sector and not called for reservist much.

Ya, what interference you hope to do? Hard to exempt totally unless severe disability. Or u want to upgrade to combat roles to look better? Aiming for military career?

Some JC boys already received letter for 2 January 2020 enlistment. So, now the standard is to give the enlistment date 3+ months in advance? That is very good!

I guess so. I checked internet and there will be no enlistment in December. There are enlistments in November but the JC students haven’t finished A exams yet.
