    Hey, I was given a medical appointment roughly 2 weeks after my AC, but bear in mind that was almost a year ago and when Fettes was still open for recruitment. I believe your medics is valid for 1 year but I’m not 100% sure. And, again not 100%, but I believe your GP forms are valid for a good while, basically on the discretion of the nurse who does your medical, but I’d say 6 months to a year tops for that?

    Parking is fine, you’ll definitely get a space if you’re there first thing in the morning, say 9am? Attire-wise, business dress for the exams, PE kit for the fitness test, and there are changing rooms 🙂

    I found out that evening I believe, I would definitely give them a call 🙂

    Yup, tell a lie / my bad, it is a competency question!

    Yeah I think so, minus the communication one. Double check your email inviting you to the AC because it states very clearly which competencies they’re assessing in which part of the day 🙂

    I’m fairly certain “leadership” is assessed in the morning activities and not a question in the afternoon interview, so they’re looking at your leadership skills when working in your small group to navigate the tasks. I did my AC back in Aug 2017 though so don’t quote me on the leadership question/it may have changed?

    Depends on what intake you're progressing towards; if you're looking at September you'll probably have your FF/SMT late July/August (the FF has to be within 8 weeks of your start date) 🙂

    I did mine at Jackton and they said they’re doing a lot of “background processes” right now, and you probably won’t hear from them until roughly the same time as your notice period comes up, e.g. 1 month before the June intake start date (And not to call them before that because it slows down their department). They said they’d be looking to get final offers letters out in line with notice periods. And with regards to SMT, no news is good news, you’ll only hear back if something has shown up

    8 weeks for the FF and 3 months for the SMT

    Fairly certain you’re given the details to book the fitting appointment (yourself) at the FF/SMT, that’s what I’ve heard from past recruits Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    You can effectively pass on the day of the medical, and the medical staff will sign you off in the report as soon as they can. But it depends if you need further testing, e.g. further eye tests (colour blind etc), blood tests etc etc, which would obviously take longer. I didn't get an email to say "you passed your medical", but I know I did by directly asking the recruitment team during a phone call about other stuff

    I'm East, passed AC in August 2017, was meant to be on March 2018 intake (but tonnes of people were cut from it, "operational demand") and currently going towards June. After my initial interview it was a roughly 4 week wait until the AC, then about 3 weeks to Medical etc.

    I was due to go to FF and SMT mid February, but about a week before that was due to happen I got an email explaining “operational demands” had changed so the intake was being cut. Hopefully you get lucky and get onto June with the March-delayed guys!
