Merit List

Hi All,

I passed my ARC at the start of November and have been added to the merit list. I have not heard anything since and have just seen that applications for the prison that i applied for have reopened. Is this a good thing or bad thing?

Thanks in advance

Hello there, I passed my ARC in July, was added to the merit list shortly after as the prison had recruited their requirement, I got got an email offering me a position in September, and a phone call with a start date for January.

Just a waiting game, nothing you can do, it will come totally out of the blue !
