    Agreed. It's not a fast process trust me, as someone who's still part of the last campaign, waiting is a big part of trying to get this job. Don't be surprised if emails come after 6pm, the working day doesn't seem to mean anything.

    They will arrive...someday...hopefully...before 2020 for sure

    They were quite fond of sending them late in the day *checks emails*

    IST invite near 6pm
    IST result after 5pm
    AC result around 5pm

    Chilling out is easier said than done whether your new to the process or an old hand. I'm sure everyone on this board has queried the inner workings of the system and why things to take so long.

    That's the beauty of the board we can all use collective knowledge and information to help ease our restless minds :)

    If you've heard nothing by tomorrow I would recommend emailing Deloitte. I reckon there will be a batch of emails heading out later today.

    Was worried earlier that it had went to my junk folder and had been deleted or something. Glad nobody else has received theirs.. Has put my mind at ease. Must admit, was expecting mine before 5pm but no sign yet. But in saying that I doubt they have made a mistake.. Will hopefully arrive soonish.

    lol, I toned mine down after waiting for AC results last time. Getting emails with PSNI in the title 5 minutes is not good for the heart!!

    I got mine too but the date I've been given is right slap bang on a day when I could potentially get THE call for this campaign!!

    I know it would go to voicemail but even so, would be gutted to be waiting on the call for C2 when in the middle of a C3 exam!!

    Hopefully they will be out early due to Xmas etc affecting intake ;)

  • Registered Users Posts: 37 Pmac773


    Got mine around 5! Today was hell waiting on that email, what does it not feel like to be in the waiting room lol it's crazy, as for the boards emailing with PSNI in the title, yeah that gets on my nerves too when I'm waiting on an email!

    Lol never mind the waiting room, each stage is just as bad, whether it's waiting on your date coming round or waiting for the result its a nightmare but sure we've all got each other to keep company on here as we slowly go nuts :P

    It's awful! I didn't expect it to be this bad lol, I'm normally quite a patient person! Although since I applied I think that has totally went out the window, checked my emails constantly yesterday! Was questioning my sanity by 5pm yesterday lmao

    Just read the CC's report to the Policing Board.

    Grand total of 5,605 applicants. Am I right in saying this is down on previous campaigns?
    I seem to remember the 1309 campaign was about 7,500.

    Yeah, not sure about 1405 but 1309 was around the 7000 odd mark. 5,605 is still a lot to compete with. Even if 50% fail IST we are still left with near 3000 to contend with for what might be a couple of hundred positions at best...puts the pressure on a bit.

    I see he mentions 21 weeks intensive training I wonder is this something that will be introduced for those successful in the next campaign or is it simply a typo?

    Maybe he doesn't count the last week as 'training'..is it not preparation for attestation and passing out parade?

    But who knows maybe they have condensed certain elements to reduce the training period.

    You get 5 days off as leave during training so it technically is only 21 weeks.

    Yeah was thinking that may have been the case


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,696 ✭✭✭ Mop a top


    Would you want a week off?!? I'd be too paranoid I'd miss something lol


  • Registered Users Posts: 210 ✭✭ Wannabegarda


    Not going to proceed any further with it. Im away in the states during the IST and the only reason i would come back is if i got the garda medical. Gotten far in the Garda atm waiting (impatiently) on interview results, im all 'copped' out with police recruitment atm. Need a break from it if i dont get it.

    There is some annual leave days yes but they're essentially study leave days, the PSNI set the dates, you can't pick/take any other Annual Leave at GV. (I'd be exactly the same mop!)
