    So just spoke to Jackton and was told they don't have final numbers for June yet. They have sent out some invites but not all of them yet. Don't want to get people's hopes up but no news yet doesn't mean your not June.

    Hi She123 It was a really good but exhausting day. Thought I'd messed up a couple of the exercises but the interview went surprisingly well. I was lucky to have a great bunch there on the day, we got on so well. How you feeling about your A/C? Make sure you read the briefs thoroughly and get involved. It really is good fun. We ran out of time with one of the exercises but were enjoying it so much we asked if we could carry on, they obviously said no . I honestly don't think you can do any more for the second interview. I just read over my notes and tried to think of a couple more examples for the competency questions, didn't use any of them. Good luck and let me know how it goes. Sx

    If I remember correctly, they went through the list of us there and confirmed what they still required. For example mine was just awaiting references and they asked me to chase it up! Another was final vetting clearance and reference.

    Wouldn’t worry about it - It’s just so they have a back to School work history. Put down the school details and head teacher. I had left school 10 years before I applied. What post(s) you going for? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think that will be the case, others have a priority. At my A/C in Oct they actually said we could be Dec but I think that was too much of a push timewise. So given what happened in March people like yourself were ahead of me. I try not to stress over what I can’t control. I won’t deny it feels like a kick in the teeth but I have a decent job and I’ll get over it! Good luck for your FF! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I suspect they'll be able to tell you on Monday or at least give a date for when they'll know if you made June intake. Best of luck! Let us know how you get on :)

    Just received my letter today to ff and smt at Jackton on 3rd May. Has anyone else? It says on it "considered" for June intake - so no promises. But like the rest, it's a step closer!

    @Jambo439 your probably looking at 12-16 weeks from sending you application to getting your SET/fitness test. Then about 2-4 weeks between each stage. if you pass the A/C and medical you will get told a rough start date. I passed my medical in Novmwber and was told June 2018. I think the wait to start training is anything from 6-18 months for the East and West now. Hope that helps !

    I spoke with Aberdeen on Friday, and was told near enough the same, they were hoping to have numbers by Monday / Tuesday at the latest and would be in touch

    I'm hoping for September too. Its a bit of a wait but I'm trying to use the time well. Get the fitness up and get in a few holidays ?

    Of course I hope it means I am just don't want to get my hopes up after the March intake was cut by so much. My AC was in August but the time has went surprisingly quickly - hang in there as you say September is not too far away! I will keep this forum updated with any other info I get in relation to numbers etc...

    Hi foxtror123 I’m booked in with optical express also so it’s good you had a good result. Although I meet the police Scotland standard I don’t fancy the prospect of wearing glasses in that role. I’ve been told to get the surgery that has slightly longer recovery time as it is better for the long term strength of the eye.

    Hey, I got laser eye surgery last week so that I could meet the eye sight standard. I had it done through optical express and the results have been excellent. I Wish I got it sooner to be honest. It was a pretty pricey but the price depends on your prescription etc. I would recommend it. I haven't had any negative side effects, just some moderate pain for a couple of hours after the surgery and sensitivity to light. Other than that I had better than 20/20 vision the next day.

    If you go to your local station and ask them if they can print them off moodle for you or there is an app called brainscapes police definitions you could use too.

    You don't find out your divisions until Tulliallan. Then once you get your division you sometimes need to wait for which stations. Once you get an intake date get learning the definitions. Wish I had as there's roughly 54 to learn verbatim ?. It's all worth it though.

    Is anyone on track to make the Police Scotland (Edinburgh) June 2018 intake? I've been delayed after the March intake due to Edinburgh having low numbers required at said time. I'm desperate to start and praying I get accepted for a June start!! If anyone hears anything i.e. fitness tests etc. then let me know.

    Who is the CC? How many divisions are there? Can you name them? Who is your divisions commander? Local and National initiatives Name the specialist units What do you know if the code of ethics and professional standards. What do constables do as part of their daily roles. Whats involved in the initial Training and probationers training (2 years of learning) Why are you wanting to be an officer? Organisations that work with Police Scotland. Name the strands of equality and diversity.

    I did mine with e-laws. I had a series of 10 assignments to complete at home and then took a final multiple choice exam. They provided all the materials. I found them to be very helpful. They use locations around the country for the exam to accommodate as many people as possible. What else did you need to know?
