  1. Older Applicants

    I joined with several people in their 40s/50s and they all got through training without any issues. That was only a year ago. There's no excuse for mentioning your age in the interview though!
  2. Vetting

    Hey bororich, there's no straight answer really but if it's as simple as you say it is, I'd think it wouldn't stop you getting in. You could speak to vetting about it as they'd be best placed to give you a more definitive answer.
  3. Tulliallan PT

    You're exactly right George, there isn't much space in the timetable for PE, it's every 10 days or so. They do expect you to keep on top of it yourself
  4. Independant Patrol

    It's different in Scotland Paul, we're with our tutors for longer
  5. Tulliallan 25th February

    Haha Lauren that's so bad it's good
  6. Tulliallan 25th February

    Thanks Stripes. When do you start? Haha yeah Polly! My radio alarm is broken so I've only got the one on my phone, but I doubt I'll be asleep anyway! This time tomorrow... :) One less second hardly seems much faster Chris! Mind over matter!
  7. Tulliallan 25th February

    That would be great Chris! I did it for my fitness test but I've never practiced it myself before so I'm not sure whether my fitness has deteriorated or if it's just because there's no one else doing it with me. Every little helps!
  8. Tulliallan 25th February

    That's brilliant, well done! Haha I'm glad it's better practising with someone else, that gives me hope! Only got 6.3 yesterday. Yeah I start on Monday, alternating between giddiness and fear. Just trying to keep myself busy today!

    Hey Lauren, Gem said you smashed the bleep but meant to ask what you got? And you Chris? I need some inspiration!

    Go for whatever you feel comfortable in and what you think will make you perform the best. I wore comfy jeans and a t shirt, they don't judge you on what you wear for the teamwork bit. As long as it's sensible I suppose! I turned up in my suit for that day but the other two candidates both turned up in their comfy clothes. It doesn't matter because the panel won't see you before you start the teamwork exercises anyway.

    Haha Polly that's amazing! Well I meant cos he makes it look so easy, not cos I fancy running across America! Very profound
  12. Tulliallan 25th February

    How'd you get on with the bleep Gem? Haha Lauren when I was out running yesterday I was thinking about how I wished I was Forrest Gump.
  13. Tulliallan 25th February

    5 months?! I'd have been climbing the walls! The wait for vetting to come back was the worst bit for me... You'd think I had a record but was just worried they'd find something I didn't know about!
  14. Tulliallan 25th February

    Hey Paul, Which force have you applied for? I take it you're at the vetting stage now? My vetting took 7 weeks and that was for Grampian. I've heard of vetting taking between 4 and 11 weeks with Scottish forces, it can just vary so much. I know the wait can feel interminably long! Rox

    Ahh I see, makes more sense now. Well, all the best with it!
