Junior Entry is defined as trainees under 18 years old at the Army Foundation College (Harrogate) on Junior Entry courses. Figures for under 18s who follow the standard entry route are recorded with the standard entry total and cannot be separated out.

Officer Designates have been excluded from this response as they do not enter the UK Army via Junior or Standard Entry.
