Sorry to hear yours got changed. It was a lot more relaxed than the initial interview. I had a female inspector and the head of recruiting, both really nice people. It is more based around you and your experiences and what you can bring to Strathclyde. There will probably be scenario questions and maybe a bit about the force. Just be confident, try to relax, you've got this far so just see it through now. Good luck for tomorrow!

I got asked about the priorities and then they expanded on them. Don't forget it could be different for everyone. They will tailor it on the individual a lot of the time.

My medical is on the 13th of November and fitness/substance test the 7th if December. I've booked my uniform fitting same day as my medical.

Amazing - you excited? ... Did they ask you what the priorities are? Fore your local division? I know it's different for everyone but its still good to know! Did you feel like it followed on from your initial?

Best advice i could give is as above. Just be confident and be yourself - they really are looking to find out what kinda person you are and how you would handle certain situations! When is your final?

So, final interview is looming.

How did people find the final (for those of you that have went through it)?

Easier/harder? More/less stressful? Longer/shorter?

From people I know that have went through it and from the forum I guess, expect anything to come?

The final interview isn't really one you can study for?

Attempting to remain calm. Lol

How long did your vetting take, iMac? I'm 5 weeks on Monday so hoping not too long to go. The waiting is the worst part!

Found out exactly five weeks after my Initial Interview. Probably would have heard sooner if my boss hadn't been away to Canada on business which meant my reference request sat on his desk unopened for a week. :unsure:

I like hearing things like that! Gives me hope that I've not long left to wait. Hopefully my old battalion don't twiddle their thumbs about getting my reference sent back. You feeling confident about your final? What prep are you doing?

Failed my final today. They feel I don't have enough experience (despite 6 years in the army and 2 tours of Afghanistan) so want me to join the specials and work for free for 2 years.

Asked me my local community police targets (not the same as priorities) and 'kick points' (what ever they are), asked how they get the info to decide what the force prioroties will be.

Was told I didn't answer some questions in the correct format, so forget its a police interview and just google 'competency based interviews' like you're going for a call centre job.

Sorry to hear that. Gutted for you. Was that the only questions you were asked regarding policing? Was the rest about you and scenarios?

Are you planning on joining the specials?
