    Congratulations. Did you get any information of what intake you will be on?
  2. Police Scotland Recruitment

    I think it depends on what areas you have put down. I was told separately that because I have put LB down that it was likely to be a march intake, however on the day of the A.C. everyone was told to expect anything up to 12 months. I might be wrong but I think east north and the like of L division are still in demand so are moving quicker. Good luck for Thursday. I really enoyed it and the best bit of advice they gave us on the day was to remember that there are jobs for everyone that are applying so you don' need to compete with anyone else and helping anyone else who seems to be struggling is of benefit to you.

    Have you both had emails about your final fitness yet?
  4. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Literally want to hug you right now. Think positive. Like I said previously my mate is a big lad. He was well over the BMI but they just took measurements and looked at his fitness. He is a fit lad and a strong lad. I think the fact you have been a soldier for years shows you are more than fit for the job. Good luck

    Thank you

    Can I ask...did everyone get a medical and uniform fitting on the same day? I had my medical on the 2nd of October but there was no mention of a uniform fitting?
  7. Police Scotland Recruitment

    My friend was heavier on his BMI and they took a waste measurement and you could tell he was physically fit. He ran well on the bleep too. Don't make yourself ill over it. If you are really worried I would just ring and ask them.
  8. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Yeah you can use calculators. They supply them. Double check that all the numbers work beforehand as they aren't the best. Good luck

    They did. Some were quite specific so that's why it's good to have a few moments to think and gave a drink of water before you answer. Be prepared to tweak an answer if one you've prepared doesn' fit exactly rather than not answering it. I had good cop bad cop situation in my interview and the 1st 3 questions were great and she was lovely whereas the man who asked the last 3 was cutting me off mid answer to ask why is left it until I was 36 to apply and he kept clock watching. I was told to expect this from people on this forum which was good because I didn' take it personally and kept calm.

    Hi Harry1 Yes they did with mine. They I'm going to ask you about personal awareness.......tell me a time when etc etc. Good luck. Just be yourself and take your time answering.
  11. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Yeah 1 question that I was asked in the 2nd interview just made me draw a blank and I said that I couldn't think of a time when I had faced that particular situation. They were really great and the C.I interviewing asked if I had faced it as a parent which put me back on track to answer. I guess it must depend on who you get on the day and what their preferences are.

    I have to disagree with you here sorry. It has to be something you have done or come across it cannot be hyperthetical. I didn't use the star method. I sat and I spoke through what I had done and made sure I got the indicators. I was told by my local Inspector to use the star method if I needed to. When I got my call to say I had passes I was told that I had a great day with both the A.C. and the interview. Everyone has faced diversity at some point. Someone being sexist, ageist or Mocking a disability etc. I think too often we only see race with the diversity question.

    Timescales really vary but your divisions are higher in demand. I very much doubt you would be in by March.. realistically I would say 12-18 months start to finish. My fitness and SET's were a few days apart. Then initial interview was 6 weeks after then assessment centre was another 7 weeks after that. My medical was the week after that. I'm still waiting for a date for my drug and substance misuse and final fitness and that's 3 weeks on. I honestly think your best revision tools are the practice papers online..they are written in the same format unlike the books that you can buy. Have a look at ratios and how to calculate time and distance etc. Good luck

    They only request it if they feel a need to. Mine has been requested because i take medication for epilepsy. The nurse on the day told me that my application would be deferred until they everything had been checked and passed. The drug and substance test is on another day.

    Fingers crossed for you all. What are all your choices? Anyone put LB down?
