SJ000 - you might receive an email today or tomorrow? Iím not sure what your surname starts with but the interviews last year were done in alphabetical order and they tend to give applicants the same notice period to prepare.

How can people in first lot beep tested not receive interviews when some from the latest lot beep tested have? They are ranked lower from personality profiling than the first lot.


Be good to hear how Left Foot Snap analyses this one ??

I canít answer this one. Call HR and ask. There were a number of people unable to complete the PAT1 the first time round due to illness who were invited to run this time. It could be that their scores were higher.

Complete it or attempt it?

What date did you get? Did you get 2 weeks notice like others? Just curious if interview invites are being staggered so everyone has the same notice for preparation

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone is the same boat... or If someone can pass their thoughts on:

Passed all testing, medicals, driver history and even been fitted for uniform but didnít hear anything about the first squad which according to here has been chosen?

Do I just sit tight and hope Iím in the next squad?

It will depend on how many "score " higher than you in the up coming interviews. You'd have to think you'll be in second squad though

I think the fact we have been intervied first means we scored higher in the psych so should be fine into the second squad canine

Might come down to interview scores but you'd be very unlucky to miss out

So, in summary, 200 invited to PAT 1, 60 to interview and 25 to PAT 2. Unknown number in "keep fit" (PPA Pool)?


Anyone got an idea what these numbers look like now? I know some more interviews happening this week.

Has anybody had confirmation on whether the first 2019 squad actually started Jan 21st like previously mentioned in this thread or know of the expected start date of the next squad?
