    I've applied for G,Q and K. Yeah i think the medical has to be deferred until you can meet the eye sight standard. When did you sit your fitness test?
  3. Police Scotland Recruitment

    I've applied to G, L and U. What about you? I think if successful at A/C, because there is such a long wait then, I've read on here about possibly deferring the medical until you have the laser eye.
  4. Police Scotland Recruitment

    What divisions have you applied for? Prep is going well. Everyone on the forum has been really helpful so just following advice from people who have passed their A/C and studying my notes. I am not going to make a definite decision on getting my laser treatment until I find out if I have passed my a/C then take it from there.

    You too! I'm going through West as well. It sounds as though it's a long haul. My consultation was today. I found it pretty pricey. They are due to call me on Monday so I'm hoping they are up for negotiating. If not, then I will leave it to see how the A/C goes and then maybe revisit it. How's your prep going for the A/C/ final interview?

    Well done on passing your initial. What area are you going through? I've got my consultation during the week so will see what price they will give me and take it from there.
  8. Assessment Centre tips?

    Hi, first time on here. Thought I'd check in to see if anyone is waiting on their A/C in April? Anyone already been through the process got any tips for the A/C? From what I gather the practical exercises are good fun and as long as you muck in, and get involved you can't go wrong. I'm more nervous about the Final interview, is this more intense than the first? I've been continuing with my research but can anyone tell me what sort of questions are asked around the other competencies?
  9. Police Scotland Recruitment

    I'm on the same boat! I had my initial interview at the start of the week. My A/C is in April and like that got my optician checks and I am borderline. Had a consult for laser eye but don't want to be out the expense in case I don't pass the A/C.

    Good luck at A/C it’s a good day :-)

    Have a think about the nine protected equality characteristics. When have you been in a situation where you have been different from others? When I answered my questions I made sure I was hitting 3-4 for the required descriptors for that competetency. Your responses don't need to be life saving, world changing answers. The interviews are just looking to see what kind of person you are. Have a few examples for each competency. Relax, take your time and have a drink of water before you answer each question. It really does help. When is your interview and where are you going for it?
  12. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Hey, thanks for your reply. I am going through West so my application has been on going for almost a year lol. If I need to wait a further 6 weeks for my medical then it should be fine! I will mention it at my A/C and if I am successful I will take it from there. Cheers

    Hey! I realised that I wouldn’t pass the eyesight standards and I decided to get laser eye surgery but I had it done before I applied. I would phone recruitment and ask them what would be best, I can’t remember exactly but I think it’s only 6 weeks after surgery that you have to wait before attending ur medical, and depending what division your going through it could be that long in between anyway.

Counter-terror police, who have led the investigation from the outset, are now treating the death as murder.

  21. Any Tips?

    Look for blue light police recruitment on YouTube and you’ll find some really good videos by Brendan o Brian. I really don’t think I would have passed the assessment center with out him! Good luck

    🙏🏻🤞👮🏻‍♀️👮‍♂️ I’ll let you know if I hear any news
  26. 29 May PC Training

    That’s sad to hear. Same with me too... I’ve given in my notice to my current employer and the last thing I want is for the dates to change. Fingers crossed for the best!
  27. Police Scotland Recruitment

    For people that have passed the initial interview, how did you all cope with the diversity question? I've got a few ideas for it but it's really stumping me. It seems like it wants a specific kind of answer because most of my examples can only really hit 3-4 points.
  28. 29 May PC Training

    I kept one ladies number but sadly she failed the vetting due to a 3rd party. So gutting! Another one of the ladies that she kept I. Touch with still hasn’t heard anything? im clinging on to the date and pray they don’t get changed.. not sure how common that is?
