    Iv read this thread over the year 🙈😂 just worrying I have missed something! But it’s more so with the competencies, worrying that my examples don’t fit the criteria, despite having the descriptors! Was there anything you done for preparation? Iv contacted probationary officers, spoke to my local station, read through the police scotland website and twitter pages?

    Hi, so I was wondering if any of you used any books to help in preparation for your initial interview? I recently bought “how 2 become a police officer” but was wondering if any of you recommend any better books? I failed interview last year and managed to get through again and just awaiting a date! so wanting make sure I manage to cover all aspects. Thank you 😬

    Aww that’s ashame, just as @hutclis has stated you have probably just missed the cut off! Fingers crossed it reopens during your process and you get the option to change your preferences! Only a month to go until you can reapply! Good luck and Let us know when you have heard back ☺️

    Hey, unfortunately the West doesn’t seem to be going any faster than this time last year! I’m in the similar position failed interview last July, reapplied in January and only heard back 3 weeks ago. So roughly 12+ weeks to get a response! I have been told I have passed paper sift and just awaiting date for interview. Good news but, we go straight to interview stage this time instead of fitness then interview! ☺️
