From what I understand you either get a conditional offer or put on the merit list. I got my results last Wednesday and passed but got put on the merit list so it's just a case of waiting for a conditional offer. Some people on here have waited only a couple of hours for an offer after being merit listed but some have waited a couple of months. When you get an offer then the long process of vetting begins - again some people have gone through vetting in about four weeks but others have waited months for vetting to be completed. How long is a piece of string??? The waiting is the worst but I think patience is the key.

Took my RAD mid last week, got the results Friday have just recieved my conditional offer this evening. Now have to wait til the morning to complete the questionnaire as all the admin staff are long gone.

Haven't received anything from OH assist as of yet.
It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity

Start of vetting to the call 17 weeks 2 days.
