    It’s group activities in the AM which is really quite fun and relaxed. Be conscious that you’re talking to everyone and if anyone’s shy in your group be sure to actively try include them. Then you’ll have a lunch break where you eat in the canteen - be mindful of conduct as you’re being watched. You’ll then have your interview which is the same format as your initial interview. I found my interviewers to be more challenging in my second interview but I wasn’t sure if that was their style of interview or a means of testing me. Best advice to give is YOU CAN DO IT! They’ve already seen the potential which is why you’re in this position so good luck 😀.

    Everyone's experiences seem to differ with the recruitment process, it really is frustrating. I know it varies from area to area - I have applied to G,Q & C division. Passed my medical in July 2017 was hoping as C division still accepting applicants I would be March or June this year but this seems to be becoming more and more unlikely. I started this process in February 2016 and the final bit is just killing me with all the waiting and uncertainty. Needed that rant! haha

    When did you pass your medical? The final part of the process through the west is so frustrating.

    When were you notified you’d be on the March intake? Did they give you a couple of months notice?

    I am going through the same area as yourself and I passed my medical in June 2016 been told to expect ‘Summer’ so hoping for June as that will be 12 months but potentially could be September. Basically just anticipate at least 12 months from passing the Medical. Fingers crossed recruitment picks up though before you need to wait another full 12 months.

    Thanks for that information there! I was told to anticipate a March or June intake. I was just curious if anyone else applying to C division had heard of things going quicker. Doubt it’ll be December but hey ho I can dream 😂!

    Hi everyone, if if I received a provisional offer of employment on 17/7/17 and have applied to G,Q,C divisions is it unlikely for me to anticipate a December intake place?

    Hey, I've just passed my A/C 2 days ago & I know that recruitment have said to me to expect an intake in 2018 early part due to back log of G,Q & K divisions which I've applied too. So relived to have passed all this stuff just a medical in 2 weeks & final fitness and then just a long wait to start. Anyone got any idea of in demand divisions not too outwith the ones I've applied to? Thanks

    Hi everyone, I am applying through West Command. I have passed initial fitness and Have an interview in a few weeks time. I am trying to devise answers for each of the competencies provided. However I am struggling to understand the Personal Effectiveness competency in terms of what kind of questions they would ask relating to this. I have read the personal competency descriptors: http://www.scotland.police.uk/assets/pdf/327931/327936/327976/328769/personal-competency-descriptors-police-constable?view=Standard and this still doesn't make sense to me. I would appreciate any hints on what I may be asked in terms of this competency. Thanks
