Hi Chez

Absolutely nothing to worry about it’s all apart of the process, I had the same and basically what I figured out is that when it goes to “referred for a decision” that just means they’ve received either a reference or a health survey you may have done so this could have a happened a few times. It did for me and I passed I’m sure you’ll be fine seriously don’t stress I ripped my hair out for 6 weeks haha, admittedly the relief when I got the call was amazing.

Anyway, good luck I’m sure you’ll be fine!!

My status has just the withdraw application button now ? I have been through all the other stages but am just waiting my fitness retest which is booked for in 3 weeks time but no other messages at all. That page only displays the job place and job number. The last message was doing the pre employment checks and then was referred for a decision and now nothing. Has anyone else had this

cheers Chez

I just phoned SSCL and all is still good there wont be any updates until I pass my physical now as I think that's all that is left before I get "the call" hopefully. 3 weeks until the retest and am doing the famous couch to 5k and a few outdoor runs to prepare in 3 weeks time.
I only got 4.2 on the last test as I am out of shape a lot as done nothing but walk since lockdown but I found out you actually need to run as walking doesn't quite cut it. so for everyone else on my status page there is no pre employment check updates or any updates now just the withdraw button if someone ever wants it. This is normal when all the checks are done I think and just waiting to get my arse over that finish line .. :slbg: :slre:
