    Have you received vetting forms yet?


  • Registered Users Posts: 107 ✭✭Sgtmort


    Yes got my vetting forms end of feb and got my pca date start of April. Just no one seems to be in this one but just me lol it'll be some craic!


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    Hahaha Jesus, what did you get at the AC, I got 62 and haven't heard a thing since. Did you get your AC result on 25th march?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 106 ✭✭Clare1304


    Nope I'm mid may :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    Did they send you an email with PCA date?

    I got 81 and was in the delayed batch. Got pca date in the post. Some craic if I pass and my intake is 1 lol

    Sgt, were you by any chance given more time by Deloitte to sort out your ICT qualification? I think a small number, according to here anyway, have progressed to vetting & PCA who were in the delay group only due to being given time to sort the ICT qual confirmation, who would have otherwise went through with the second batch (score of 70+).

    I'm not sure how it's being worked, though. I know someone who scored 69 in the delay group with no movement yet, but I seen someone progress on here with a 68 I think? Maybe average scores between IST and AC count towards merit? Who knows.


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    That's a really good score, can't imagine why they have taken their time progressing you, and thanks now I know what to look out for, fed up checking emails.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 106 ✭✭Clare1304


    I assumed all 68's and above were at the same stage as me? Can't see why that wouldn't be the case. I got over 60 in my IST but honestly can't see that having any relevance on merit except when in direct comp with others who got 68 at ac. But as you said who knows.... Confusing process.


  • Registered Users Posts: 107 ✭✭Sgtmort


    I was held back as they had to get confirmation for my IT. Just wondering as have heard anyone else in my boat

    I just passed with 60% and haven't heard anything at all yet, but been training away.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 518 ✭✭✭oztop1234


    All we can do at the minute! :-) we will hear soon


  • Registered Users Posts: 508 ✭✭✭.S.


    I've heard people who failed ist within a certain amount have now been invited to ac, due to "lack of qualifying candidates". Sounds like it's true. Whilst we are still waiting on vetting/PCA etc. thoughts??


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 518 ✭✭✭oztop1234


    Almost sounds as if they don't want to process the B group. But it says on the breakdown score "minimal future development required"

    If that's true how long would it take to organise from start to finish.

    Worrying......


  • Registered Users Posts: 508 ✭✭✭.S.


    Exactly, B still meets the standard. I've heard suggestions that even with the Bs there won't be enough successful candidates but it's all speculation. If they need more then surely they'll be processing our applications? I don't know what to think of it.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 518 ✭✭✭oztop1234


    I know someone who failed IST by one. I'll ask this person to if they have heard anything.

    Really? Not enough even with B's. Surely they should be processing us soon.

    Not sure what to make of it myself. Stay positive just.....

    Would you say your information has come from a reliable source?

    There is a PCA familiarisation this week I think. Maybe those people might find out some info


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 444 ✭✭Sthm


    I thought HighburyLad had received correspondence to that effect a while back, as if there was a 'back-up' list of those who scored just shy of the IST pass mark to be put through AC if there weren't enough candidates in the merit list passed to PSNI. If Highbury still follows any of these threads, maybe he'd be able to clarify if he's received anything?

    Personally, if it's true, I'd take it as a good thing? Maybe suggests there aren't enough in the merit list to reach 478 appointees after you factor in fails, non-attendance etc.


  • Registered Users Posts: 508 ✭✭✭.S.


    I'm trying to see it as a good thing.

    A friend is also in delay batch, a friend of hers got invited to ac and someone else we know has also heard back with an invite to ac.

    I'm hoping it's promising for us, guess I'd feel more at ease if I'd received vetting forms etc..


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 444 ✭✭Sthm


    Yeah, I'd be more at ease knowing the ball is rolling and progressing. Feels like limbo whilst waiting for the PCA invite and vetting forms.

    Still remaining positive and at least there's a few of us in the same position. I'd take a stab at the next batch being processed around early / mid May?


  • Registered Users Posts: 508 ✭✭✭.S.


    At first I liked the extra time to prepare fitness wise. But now I'd like to hear something... Couldn't tell you when the next batch will be, I can't work out their thinking at all with that to be honest!

    Just checked with someone I know who missed IST by one and they haven't heard a thing.

    Do you think if this is true and they get to sit AC and score higher than us then they will move ahead of us. When is this all happening?


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    On the feedback email from AC, it states that it is a provisional offer of employment, due to successfully passing PSNI administered sections. Surely that would mean we are guaranteed to be put through the next stages at least.

    I think it is a matter of when and not if, so I'm not too worried about not hearing anything so far, it is just frustrating knowing that others have advanced so far already and we haven't heard a thing.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 106 ✭✭Clare1304


    I've asked 2 people who just missed the mark (1 and 2 marks shy)
    Neither have received anything. This whole process is speculation but if they will have to invite all those who just missed the mark so we should hear of more soon if it's true.


  • Registered Users Posts: 508 ✭✭✭.S.


    Oztop I'd maybe get your friend to ask Deloitte? I know when the IT allowance was made I didn't hear straight away, I emailed once people said about it on here and was then advised by Deloitte. Unfortunately I haven't seen the email to these IST people / know what it says


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    Hopefully and with the number of officers that leave/retire each year, they will need to have a good amount trained up soon enough.


  • Registered Users Posts: 508 ✭✭✭.S.


    Just to clarify, I've heard of two people who've been invited to AC, a friend advised me but obviously this is by no means official, I just wondered if anyone else heard similar as would be interested to know if this is indeed the case. I doubt my friend would tell me unless she was sure but.. Don't take this as gospel until we know more basically.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,262 ✭✭✭DesertCreat_15


    Ehh, how many places are they recruiting for ? Surely funding hasn't been allocated for more than the 478 figure?

    There has to be 2-300 B's in limbo at least !


  • Registered Users Posts: 411 ✭✭Cromlech


    True, I wonder how many A*-A's have been put through so far aswell. There seems to be alot of rumors about lack of candidates or other recruitment campaigns. I can't imagine they would start recruiting again while they still have plenty of eligible folk on the sidelines.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 518 ✭✭✭oztop1234


    As per chief cons letter they have funding for 300 next year too. So you're up to 778 now

    Even still, using myself as a bench mark for candidates, I'm sure there are more than enough to fulfill that number that are at the same stage as the rest of us or have even progressed further.
