I am also in the same boat.

Had the interview 3 weeks ago but am yet to hear back. There were PAT2s last week and this week. Do you think we are being held off as reserves in case or maybe being held off for the next round of PAT2s? You think we would've heard by now if we were no longer required?


My thinking is if we were terrible in the interviews they would have told us by now. They usually have everyone ranked so I'm assuming they'll do Pat 2's on the top say 25 then if some fail do more? How knows!

Agreed - that would make sense and I'm hoping it is true!
No real point in holding onto us if we were not suitable based on our interview score.

If we're still a chance for a PAT2 call up at some stage, I've believe we could be waiting without any notice for a bit - maybe the first round of the next recruitment drive if we miss out on this round?

Yes Ball222 I hope we'd be in the running for the first round of the next recruitment drive. However Pat 1 only lasts for 12 months I did mine in Jan so maybe i'll have to do that again if I am still in the running as next squad I think would be Next year.

It's such a waiting game.

Hey guys.
For those not able to attend the info sessions, the MFS will open the recruitment in July this year for all those that did not apply last year.
Also, for those like me that are still in the 'Stay Fit' pool, they did say to 'Hold tight'. I am hoping we will hear something in the next few months.
Good luck to everyone in that position, and good luck to everyone that will be applying in July.

 The wording within my PAT1 stay fit letter was "You are advised that your PAT1 result is valid for 12 months. If you are not invited to attend an interview within that period, you will be required to undertake the PAT1 again in order to remain in the process."

As we've been interviewed, do you think we bypass the requirement to be retested if 12 months lapses and we are invited to PAT2 at some stage after that period?

I have received an update from MFS, to say they have sufficient applicants from the last round of interview for Pat2 however based on the results of my interview I am in the pool for future consideration. My results now will last 2 years from August 2018 and no need to reapply.

I guess that's good news somewhat? At least your still in for consideration - possibly in the next round later this year.

Did you receive an email or did you contact HR?

I sent them an email asking if we were still up for consideration after the interviews.

I am way back in the passed the personality test and stay fit pool and received this email today

This is to advise you that your application remains active and will continue to do so for the application lifecycle period of 2 years effective from August 2018. During this time and subject to MFS requirements, you may be invited forward to contest the PAT1. It is important to note that you are not eligible to re-apply in Recruitment and Selection Campaigns that may occur within your 2-year application lifecycle period.

At least itís positive but by the sounds of it, Iím still a long way back in line, but in the words of Jim Carey in Dumb and dumber ďso youíre telling me thereís a chance!Ē
