Yeah benchmark is 70% --- highest possible score you can get on the ARC exercises ( Situations) is 80 - not sure how ya get 85 but hey ho....... Numerical is minimum 7 out of 10, English, Fitness , Medical etc is Pass or Fail if I remember ✅

Hydrops, that’s exactly what happened to me on my first fitness test, white coat syndrome and nerves made my blood pressure go high! I’d also just done the role plays and exam so probably on a bit of a high anyway!

Doesn’t it have to be below 170?

The first time I joined the prison service my blood pressure was fine, but I was in the armed forces and fairly fit, never had white coat syndrome before!!

The 85 is the percentage for the role plays etc, the rest just show as pass/fail, all were a pass so at least I don’t have to do that again, well, unless no offer comes in the next 12 months!

Just hoping it comes sooner rather than later!

Londonlad81, my first two were over 170, the last one was 165 but the lower was above the 100, 103 to be precise. Oh well, doesn’t matter now!

I did my ARC at Grendon on the 7th of Feb then went back on 11th of Feb for my fitness test (I took an out of date asthma inhaler with me on the 7th, oops!).

I passed with a score of 63.96 and I’m now on the merit list for the prison I applied to.

I’m just a bit curious at what sort of scores other people got when they did their ARC?

Cheers all! Hope everyone has a good day!
What is the pass mark for the ARC, does anybody know?

i attended a virtual interview in July and upon being successful i was rhen invited to an ARC event in September.

I passed all elements of ARC with an exercises score of 74%. Does anyone know if this is seen as a good score as i am now on a merit list and i was kinda trying to get a gage on how i fare in comparrison?

Thoughts?

Well done on passing! I’ve literally just found out I have passed too! 75% and 10/10 on numerical test /pass on all the others.
Does anyone know if this is a good score to make me in a good position on the merit list?
