You will only receive a conditional offer and invite for fitness/medical once you have been allocated a vacancy Bradders.

Just a waiting game, might be a week, might be 4 weeks, might be 4 months. It’s anyone’s guess I’m afraid ⏰

Unfortunately I am in the waiting game also, passed VARC back in February and still awaiting allocation, think I'll give the recruitment team a call to enquire if there has been any further progress in my application 🤞🤞
