I remember going to my ARC suited and booted, felt a right nob head as I was the only one who made that kind of effort, everyone else looked like they were just going out for the day! Tracksuits, jeans and T-shirt’s

This is how I felt on this online recruitment, I have dressed up in a white shirt, plain background behind me that required me turning my flat upside down, and I was literally the only one looking like a dickhead on this zoom call, people in their tshirts and there was a guy sitting on his bed as well with laptop on his knees 🤣

Just wear your gear for the test, or take a pair of shorts to pop into when it’s test time, no formalities on test day.

Thanks Taff, I just want this over and done really!
Do you know anything about the consent form? I’ve printed out the health questionnaire but it says I should bring both this and the consent form which I don’t seem to find anywhere on the portal so it’s confusing me!

Tbh I don't, when I had my assessment day it was in 2019 and they only asked me to bring proof of address and ID. Because I was almost a year on merit list I had to redo my fitness in March last year they only asked me to bring ID. Sorry can't help with those forms.

I did my fitness in February, I wasn’t asked to take any forms with me as they had them there to fill out which I assume was the health questionnaire, no idea what the consent form could be
Only needed to show my photo ID but took passport/birth certificate just incase

Thanks you all, I am the type of person to read everything very carefully and I found it on their candidate portal 😅 apparently I’ll wait and see there if there is anything more to fill.

Yeah I saw that too on the portal but when I got there they had them printed out! Just take a mask with you you have to wear that the whole time other than the bleep test and the speed test.
Good luck hun! X

Alright!! As I got into a car I got an email about cancellation! Absolutely gutted. They didn’t give a reason whatsoever, just that they will contact me in a due course to reschedule. I so wanted to have this over and done 😩
