Got to re take mine before I get a start date aswell passed back in March before the pre covid madness kicked in. Little bit of a pain that I have to do over 4 hours of driving to Croydon for a 40 minute test 😂

Haha a lot have had to do that I think.

Passed Arc and fitness 03/20
Vetting 10/20
Pass vetting 11/20
Retake fitness as it would expire before I could complete POELT 12/20 well Monday just gone.

It’s a painful wait and read someone is still waiting 6 weeks after passing fitness for the second time. The person I was with Monday was doing his fitness for the third time! At least it’s got better. You read back to the RAD days and people were waiting 18 months to 2 years!

Hiya

Hope you are well. I have my virtual assessment centre next Wednesday so any info would be greatly received

Did you find out on the day wether you were successful?

Make sure you read and understand the brief when it comes to role plays, there is a list of rules and make sure you stick to them, there is about 10ish on there so if you don’t remember them all it’s not an issue, just try your best
You get 10 minutes to read it all so you aren’t expected to know everything, it’s mainly to see how well you deal with the situation naturally
They really aren’t as scary as you think, all nerves will go after the first minute or two
