I left BP in 1977 after passing my writtens and failing my orals!
I was advised then that there was to be a clear-out & those who failed their tickets could be the first to go - so told if you want to get out now before the market is flooded then do so .. I did and joined Wallems (UK), best thing I could have done and my BP training put me in good stead.
