    Thanks Sam, I was pretty quick last time round, applied in April and was through to assessment centre in September with 8 weeks wait between my SETs and initial interview. My advice is to be actively involved in all the tasks. I failed the final task for “overseeing” too much. It’s actually a really good day, just make yourself heard, muck in and help anyone who is struggling or who isn’t speaking up.

    Good evening everyone, Just a quick question for anyone who can help. I was unsuccessful at assessment centre September ‘17 and can reapply at the end of the month. Has anyone else reapplied after the six months waiting time? Does the application process take as long second time round and how close were your fitness and assessment centre dates? Just any insight really would be great. Thanks in advance!

    I was unsuccessful unfortunately so absolutely gutted. Was down with A stomach bug and by the time I got to my interview in the afternoon I was barely holding it together. I'm going to phone up on Monday and get my feedback and use everything I've learned to come back as a strong candidate in march. best of luck on Thursday! Enjoy yourself, make yourself heard and if you don't understand something then seek clarification. Let me know how you get on!

    I only had my initial interview on Monday 28th August and my assessment centre is on the 14th of September. It's strange that they've postponed one and not the other Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hey Losthawk, I was asked 6 questions,so one for each competency, and effective communication was just judged as I was talking. Starting to think it hasn't went well since I haven't heard from them again today. Good luck with your interview! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi everyone I was wondering if someone could give me a bit of advice. I had my initial interview through at Jackton yesterday and was told I would hear back from them either way by the end of the day but I still haven't heard anything from them. Has this happened to anyone else? How long did it take you to hear back from them? Thanks in advance Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I bought the howtobecome practice papers and they weren't very helpful. Morkc is right, the ones on the police Scotland website are the best and as long as you know how to do the things in them you'll be fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I am through East and it was 12 weeks from sending my application to SET's and fitness at Fettes. I'm sure it's still longer for West. Now I'm 8 weeks before my initial interview through at Jackton. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi guys, after ten weeks finally received my invite to SET's and Fitness test on June 27th at Fettes. So excited and nervous at the same time, anyone else got theirs that day? Wishing all the best to everyone starting at Tulliallan this month.
