    Has anyone failed AC first time but came back stronger the second time and passed? I unfortunately have another set back in failing AC on Thursday! Was in a group of 5 and three of them were very loud and leading, so struggled to get my opinion and views in without seeming like I was being ignorant! It completely knocked my confidence for my second interview! Phoning on Tuesday for feedback so hopefully will be able to see were I need to improve on!

    Does anyone have any rough ideas on what questions can be asked on personal effectiveness? I have a few examples lined up in which all hit at least 4 points. But worried in case I get a question that doesn’t fit any of my examples? if anyone has any examples just so I know I’m on the right track it would be great! Thank you ☺️

    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 ☺️
