I would like to share some the guidelines to follow when submitting a document to bupers online.
You need it more than I do. And that is the reason you should read this.
This is just a guideline that the navy heads use to make you an officer.
It is important that you read all the pages in the document from 1 to the last number.
After reading the doc, make sure you work on your docs promptly.
Delay is not allowed here.
You do things asap without giving any story.
Be it reasonable or not.
You should also put in mind the quality of the docs you are submitting.
A very clear document is not only required; it will also help you.
Because you wouldn’t expect the admins that will go through your doc to start looking for a glass for what’s on the doc.
