    Fairly certain you’re given the details to book the fitting appointment (yourself) at the FF/SMT, that’s what I’ve heard from past recruits Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi guys, just got my invite to FF/SMT on 2/5/18, I’m E division Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You can effectively pass on the day of the medical, and the medical staff will sign you off in the report as soon as they can. But it depends if you need further testing, e.g. further eye tests (colour blind etc), blood tests etc etc, which would obviously take longer. I didn't get an email to say "you passed your medical", but I know I did by directly asking the recruitment team during a phone call about other stuff
  5. Police Scotland Recruitment

    I'm East, passed AC in August 2017, was meant to be on March 2018 intake (but tonnes of people were cut from it, "operational demand") and currently going towards June. After my initial interview it was a roughly 4 week wait until the AC, then about 3 weeks to Medical etc.

    I was due to go to FF and SMT mid February, but about a week before that was due to happen I got an email explaining “operational demands” had changed so the intake was being cut. Hopefully you get lucky and get onto June with the March-delayed guys!
  7. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Yup I'm the same as you guys, I'm hoping for E division; I passed my AC in Aug 17, medical delayed my December intake, and was meant to be on March, but that same delay has sent me towards June, it's dragging on indeed!
  8. March 2018 Intake (Dundee)

    I'm looking at March too, got my final fitness and SMT at the start of Feb
  9. Colour vision referral

    Yeah I had to go for a deferral, the colour vision clinic in Glasgow is only open twice per week so getting an appointment can take a while. I requested one in mid September and was given one at the start of November (roughly 6 weeks then).

    Yup, it seems that vetting just quietly goes on in the background and you'd only be notified if something had caused you to fail it. Since you've been given a date for Final Fitness, it would suggest your vetting is all good. I haven't had my official FF invite yet, but have been told I should be having one at the start of Feb

    @Wightman84 You don't hear back unless there is something negative. I was at Fettes on Monday for a forms meeting and happened to see on the piece of paper that my vetting has been passed (but i never got contacted about the result)

    @xperty92 Hope all goes well bud

    @TriggersBroom Buddy, the one piece of advice I'd give you (i've got an exercise physiology degree), is keep up the exercise but the super important thing is to track your food intake (use a food diary). You'll see tonnes of diets and weight loss plans out and about but it simply comes down to "energy in vs energy out", so by tracking your food intake you can see if you're burning enough calories to achieve a calorie deficit (burning more calories than you are consuming) Send me a message if you want any further advice :-)

    Yeah I'm the same, during my assessment centre we were told we would be working towards the Dec 18th intake start date
  15. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Hey guys, I haven't posted on here in a good while, but I had my assessment centre at Fettes yesterday (found out this morning that I passed!) and was wondering if anyone on here was also at the test day? Medical up next in mid September!
