    Hi! The books with the practice papers helped me a lot. If you’re in Aberdeen I’d happily send you them, save you buying, I’ve got the interview prep one as well. I can’t say how long after for your interview, mine was one month after my sets but from reading on here, I think it depends on how busy the department is. I applied for A & E and have done everything through Aberdeen and up until now it was fairly quick. Steph :-)

    Thanks. Oh Jeez. I was thinking June originally and now I realise it could even be December. I know we are told it’s a long process but I never thought this part of it, the waiting and not knowing would be so frustrating haha and I only passed medical in Feb. i hope you get into the next intake after being delayed 🤞🏻🤞🏻 Steph

    Hey! Yeah they were both on the same day, don’t think everyone’s were though. Steph :-)

    Yay well done you!! I wouldn’t say you can really prepare for a/c, just try to relax and be yourself and make sure you get involved with the activities. For the second interview, I thought it was very similar to the first but they press you a bit harder so just make sure you have plenty of examples for the competencies and can adapt them to different situations, positive & negative. Also, have a look at what campaigns are going on with Police Scotland just now and if they are working with any organisations for example child line for an anti child abuse campaign, as part of the partnership questions. Good luck Steph :-)

    I thought the exact same after my interview, But I got that golden call to say I had passed the first interview. You will have done better than you think! Everything crossed, hope you hear soon :-) Steph

    Oh no, I can imagine. I told my work I would be leaving to give them a heads up but luckily I haven’t officially handed in my notice. I need a countdown so I know how many days left I have in this job haha!

    Ah okay, thank you. It really is, now that I’m thinking September’s intake is more realistic I really don’t know how I can stay in my job until then, hating it more everyday! Feel for you though, you’ve been waiting longer than me, I hope you hear soon!

    Hi, When/How were you told you would be in March’s intake? (Before it was delayed) I had been hoping for June but now there are a lot of people who were cut from March I’m thinking there’s no chance. The waiting/not knowing is driving me nuts! Haha Steph

    Hey! I realised that I wouldn’t pass the eyesight standards and I decided to get laser eye surgery but I had it done before I applied. I would phone recruitment and ask them what would be best, I can’t remember exactly but I think it’s only 6 weeks after surgery that you have to wait before attending ur medical, and depending what division your going through it could be that long in between anyway. Steph

    Wow what a time to be waiting. I reckon I’ve been lucky with the time I’ve had to wait after reading some of these comments from people going through west. I’m just dying to find out what intake I’ll be but it will all be worth the wait it in the end! Steph

    North, sorry
  13. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Hi! I applied 23rd of November - Set/fitness 12th December - initial interview 18th of January - A/C & 2nd interview 26th of January - uniform fitting & medical February 9th. I’ve not heard anything about proposed intake or final fitness etc yet...so now I’m just playing the waiting game!! Steph :-)
  14. Police Scotland Recruitment

    Well done on passing! I had laser eye surgery for getting in too but I had it a wee while before applying because of the time you have to wait so didn’t have to defer medical. Good luck with it, albeit expensive one of the best decisions I’ve made :-)

    Ace, I’ll have a look into them. Thank you :-)
