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:


You can do this mate, I was worried sick and then when I was practicing at home I was only getting up to 3:7 then on the day flew through it..

This is some of the things I done
So I stopped drinking any fizzy pop/sweets ect
Started taking vitamins.
I want on walks
I also practiced the bleep test at my local park they had a basket ball court that I used!
I also got a cheap indoor exercise bike of Facebook.
Also I ate bananas and orange juice as they help with lactic acid build up make sure you stretch before and after.
Also I used Epsom salt in bath.
I did fitness aerobic class on YouTube too

Hi sorry to jump on this post.

Basically for the past 8 days my status has said "we will be in contact shortly to discuss next stage of recruitment process" and I'm assuming this is for the famous "call" is it normal to wait this long ? Only asking as it obviously states shortly.
Will I get any answers chasing it up and if so is their a certain number as have been told will be rung evening time?

Many thanks
