    But on the flip side of this, make sure you're actually making valid contributions. Don't talk for the sake of talking and make sure you're not being overbearing. If someone seems quiet, ask their opinion too and try to get them involved. Best of luck Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    I’ve been using Altbergs for a year now: Warrior Microlites, and they’ve been nothing short of excellent. If you phone them directly and explain you’re joining up they’ll be sure to give you a decent discount. All the best
  3. As mentioned above, if your long term goal is to go for the regulars then go for it. I started off by applying for the specials and was going to run it alongside a law degree. Quickly realised that I didn’t want to do law or join the specials and wanted to join the regulars. Asked for my application to be swapped over after the SET/Initial Fitness stage and they were more than helpful. I had the intention of going for promotion in my previous job if I didn’t get in the police the first time. Potentially something you could look at in your current role to help you meet some of the competencies better. Been in just under a year now and haven’t looked back.

    Hi, got my confirmation today too. Just waiting for some things from Jackton to come through via email or post. Might be worth setting up a whatsapp chat so we can all chat; unless there's one already going. See you on the 27th!

    I sat A/C on 12th January and had medical on 13th February so roughly a month, and since you're going through North, I'd imagine you would be the same. Best of luck!

    Finally at the stage where I can start on my kit list. Do we get discount from Altberg and if so how do I go about getting it? Thanks in advance.

    Best of luck to anyone heading to Aberdeen for final fitness tomorrow! Hopefully see some of you there.

    Yeah, going through North and have been told I'll be based in either Tayside or Fife; not sure which yet. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Reading all of these comments makes me feel very fortunate. I applied in August as a special, passed SET and fitness but changed my application to a regular. I've been progressed for March intake and have FF, SMT, Medical and uniform fitting on Monday. Seems to be a very quick turnaround for me. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk

    Yeah, hoping they still encourage maximum ability despite the lower pass level.

    Will they continue to encourage maximum (or near maximum) ability or cut the test right at 5.4?

    If the fitness test is to change to 5.4, will the entire MSFT be adjusted to be in line with the Job Related Fitness Test (JRFT) that is used in England and Wales with different roles demanding higher levels on the JRFT. Details here: http://www.college.police.uk/What-we-do/Standards/Fitness/Pages/default.aspx I feel that 5.4 is way too low IMHO.

    Just received an email saying that I am being progressed for the 27th March intake so there must be a few places left. I submitted my application mid-August and passed AC on 12th January. Waiting on dates for Medical, FF and SMT though. Going through North and have D (Tayside) and P (Fife) down as my choices. My third choice was G (Greater Glasgow) but have been told that I definitely won't be sent there due to the high demand. Cheers

    You're correct in what you're thinking. Yes/No boxes for each condition and room to expand on the extent of said conditions and Doctor has a few boxes to tick and signs it. It goes right the way back as my GP added things in from 2001 (when I was 2) that I'd forgotten about in all honesty. It seemed quite brief but I imagine that's because the medical stage later in the process will be more thorough. Hope that helps CameronS999
