How do I change my age on Cadet Portal?

It says on portal I’m a year younger than I actually am. Is there any way I can change this myself or do I have to ask my CO?

This won’t be something you’re allowed to change on your own. You’ll need to ask your staff and be prepared to show something official with your date of birth on it - the staff will want to be extra certain they’re getting it right.


This does sometimes happen. In the past I have sometimes struggle to read the handwriting on the 3822A consent forms. I’m sure many others have likewise and details then get entered incorrectly into SMS.
Your profile on Cadet Portal is entirely linked to the data held in SMS.

That’s fine. I can bring in a passport or something. Does this affect me putting my name down on events?

Only if you’re applying for things that have an age limit
