    Old pay scheme.

    You never know, your vetting checks may have revealed something in regard to a family member - something which you may not be aware of. The bottom line for recruitment is; can they afford to take only the very squeaky clean? Unfortunately for you, that is indeed the case. I'm very sorry to hear you've had your dreams squashed at the last hurdle, that is truly, truly horrendous.

    Kane, I can't private message as lacking 10 posts. Drop me an e-mail on ja*e_on*line*@ho*tma*il.co*m (Remove the *'s) please.

    Whoops! Just a bit of a blunder there. Fitness same day, 09:30. Drug test in the afternoon. The hearing test.. you sit in a sound-proof booth with head phones on, tones played at different frequencies. You hold down for the duration that you can hear the tone then release the button when you can no longer hear it. My hearing is dreadful (I worried a good amount when I previously went through a medical to join as a Cheshire Special) but apparently it is within the normal levels.. and still is! So if you have no issues, nothing to worry about! I take it Derbyshire HQ doesn't have any residential accommodation (Haven't come across anything suggesting that exists), looks like December might be busy looking for a house-share!

    Passed the medical on Thursday, much to my relief! It consists of: - GP overlooking medical history - Blood pressure taken - Grip test - Flexibility tests (touching toes, hop on one leg... that sort of thing) - Look inside ears/hearing test - Lung tests (Blow into a tube in different manners; steady blow, forceful blow etc) Then onto another Doctor who again, overlooks medical history picked out by the GP. - That person will query that lot and go over the results of lung, hearing, grip, blood pressure, BMI etc to ensure you meet the standards - He'll do a few checks involving the stethoscope on your chest while patting your chest/back (I believe they listen to the echo and can tell if something isn't quite right, such as asthma) Have the fitness test next week. Haven't heard anything else.
