I was marked wrong for 'I am going to become a soldier in the future', which is a more everyday way of saying this.
Yes, and that is one of the accepted translations. Which part of the course did you find it in? Knowing that will help us improve the course. Thank you for you help.

Is 'I will be a soldier' significantly different from 'I will become a soldier'?

Yes, they are different.
