  • Hi Kelso, I'm not actually sure what merit score I had, I never phoned up just incase it was too high and it put me off getting in. I remember reading hat a few people got in earlier this year with higher merit scores at the start. I reckon it might have been to do with background also, and when the vetting forms had been finished.


    Thanks! That's good news for me then. I've passed vetting already! (took only upto 2 months!). My Merit score isn't fantastic, but I believe easily good enough to get me in. Hopefully since I've passed vetting I wont be waiting too long. :D

    Hopefully not then Kelso. You could be accepted before you know it lol! Do you know roughly when the calls wll start going out for C14?:D




  • Hopefully not then Kelso. You could be accepted before you know it lol! Do you know roughly when the calls wll start going out for C14?:D

    No idea! I hear Oct and Nov are both full, so I wonder if Jan will still be C13, a mix of C13/C14 or all C14!




  • did somebody not say a while back that they phoned recruitment and asked them about when the C14 intakes would start, and they said, 'probably be the end of the year?'

    Almost sure i read that on here somewhere!
    It would mean the phone calls going out at the end of the year probably, not the actual intakes starting.

    won't matter to me - damn vetting's gonna take a millenium!




  • hey guys just a quick question. during the first four weeks are you allowed to leave garnerville at the weekend? or is it only after the four weeks initial training that you are allowed to leave?

    You're allowed to leave on the friday evening/night and return very early on the monday morning (but most people go back on the sunday night).
    You're allowed to stay all weekend if you like though! (I think)

    Then after 4 weeks you can go home every night, unless you live miles away and then they let you stay there

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Hi,

    During the first 4 weeks, as said, you can take off on a friday night and you don't hav to be back till monday morning. But also during the week, you can go home in the evenings if you want as long as you're back for bedtime. Saying that tho - they have a lot of activities in the evenings during that 4 weeks (hence why they get everyone living in) so I wouldn't make any plans till I'd see the timetable.

    I honestly don't know how you can learn number 3 word perfect, it's near impossible not to make a mistake lol!

  • printed off all 111 pages and the work book, been flat out filling it in.

    I got definitions 1 and 2 perfect, number 3 is tough though. just learning it in sections. the rest after that look not too bad. The tests are written though and some words are included to prompt it I think, so wont be as hard as remembering them on the spot in front of someone.. i hope :P




  • Jim what class you in mate?

  • Aww man i can't wait :) 6 weeks and a few days to go :)

    I was thinking of wearing a suit to the GRN but i take it from that post Rob nobody else did? Or is that something else you're talking about?

  • Alot of people didnt wear one, and it wasnt looked upon kindly. They made a few examples of people who were dressed too casually, so make an effort to get a good suit on, and more importantly for the first day. We were told that if you arrive without one you will be sent to tesco to buy the cheapest suit they have before being allowed in..
