    Does anyone know how long the interview lasts? Any tips / questions you were asked would be great help too! Got my interview on Monday!

    It was my divisions, unfortunately I picked all the ones on a waiting list😞 Did you get any feedback for your last interview? I must admit I’m starting to really panic now. I’ve no idea what to expect Do you have any tips? 😛

    Got my interview 2nd July! It’s been one long journey to get here. I first applied June last year. Has anyone been through the vetting or going through it at the moment? Just wondering how long it normally takes. thanks in advance and best of luck to everyone on the forum!☺️

    Thanks so much G307! Here’s hoping. Don’t know if I’ll cope waiting to hear for days or weeks. I’ve done hundreds of test papers to study. Seem to be passing language and maths but information handling is another story. That could be my downfall. Just trying to think positive. Will let you all know how I get on. Seriously couldn’t live without this forum now haha

    I went to the library and copied a full book of past papers. English, handling info & maths. There is around 300 tests in total so will take me a while to get through but study as much as I can and my partner marks it. I’m not sure what the book is called but I would go to the police section and check! Hope that helps. I’ve still not sat mine but hoping this helps anyway

    Thanks for your replies guys! I’m hoping I hear soon it’s just taking a little too long now. I’ve never checked my emails so much in my life haha. I applied for Division D, Q & K, however I applied 3 days BEFORE recruitment posted they were not looking for anymore in they areas & anyone who applied 10th July onwards may be waiting for a long time but I applied 7th July so thought I was lucky :-( Does anyone know how long it is from hearing you’ve been accepted to the next stage to actually sitting your SET or fitness test? I’ve been studying & training like mad but I’m hoping I had a couple of weeks at least in between hearing back & the actual tests just to push myself even more Thanks again everyone! Would be lost without this forum :-)

    Hi all! I applied back in July 9th. Still to hear back though. I did call recruitment & heard the same, that there’s a big backlog however was told “new news is good news” which is true! I’m so glad I’ve found this forum/topic & know that I’m not alone. Genuinely thought I was the only person who hadn’t heard yet. Does anyone know if recruitment do vetting on the application stage? I’m worried maybe that could be holding it up too? Not that I’ve got a criminal record however I did get in trouble a few times when I was a stupid teenager haha. Nothing major! Thanks all!

    Well done Frank7!!!! Great news!! Thanks everyone also for the advice, it's really petty regarding the "&" but hopefully by reapplying in 6 months it will actually be better for me. I hope they see from that, that I am serious about joining (I hope)

    Thanks Frank7. Trying my best not to lose faith but so disappointed. Only 5 month and 30 days to go haha

    The Police Recruitment Application Form

    Hi all, Not sure where to write this on the forums as I'm still pretty new to this. Submitted my application about 5 weeks ago & have just found out it was rejected. Absolutely gutted! I gave recruitment a call for some feedback & was told my application was great BUT because I typed "&" and not "and" throughout my application, this is the reason it was rejected. Has this happened to anyone else? It seems so petty but I guess it does need to be 100%. Already counting down the days to reapply in 6 months haha Thanks all
