  • Hi Folks, First timer here aswell. Passed my Ac with 77%, also got letter last Friday from PSNi, just keeping an eye in post box and email everyday lol. Is the fitness test really that challenging?

    Great forum bdw with lots of helpful information.

    Hey guys, I would refrain from contacting them. They made it clear they shouldn't be contacted unless you need to update your info. It was only an acknowledgement letter. I appreciate that everyone is keen to get the letters but ringing them won't get it out to you any sooner, its just taking up more of their time. I would see it different if everyone had their letters and you were concerned about yours maybe getting lost in the post or something.

    I do agree with this. If they specifically ask you not to contact and then you do well ...

    I'm certainly not a fan of upsetting any apple carts especially since I really want this particular apple cart :D




  • Sorry guys, only finding this thread.
    I'm 65-70




  • FOI request through. 905 passed.....146 over 50, 590 over 60, 155 over 70 and 14 over 80%.


    2121 people attended so that would be why they lowered the pass mark.

    In comparison 908 passed in C2

    Interesting stuff. They clearly tinker with the AC each year and this time they tinkered too much.

    It does pretty much mirror our own 'squad' here :D




  • With these numbers everyone with a pass is in with a chance hopefully , time to get fit and remain stand up members of the community !

    Yep, if they intend to take similar number to the last campaign, there is a real possibility of reaching the lower marks.




  • Really? First thought there was that anyone under 63ish had no chance ?

    There will unfortunately be candidates that don't pass the PSNI administered stages and that will cut the merit list further.

    The majority of candidates scored 60-70 and even at that most could have scored low 60's.




  • Hi all. New to this and think its a fantastic idea!! Got an AC score of 55-60 to add to the list

    Probably a couple of stupid questions but:

    1. Those that scored over 70 and 80, I take it they're not included in the total for those who scored over 60?

    2. Was the pass mark lowered because of lower attendance rates are because they needed a certain percentage of candidates to progress?

    Nope not stupid at all, each score range is separate, so the over 60 only includes 60-69.

    I'd say they have an idea of how many people they need/want and a fair idea from previous years of how many will pass or fail the remaining stages and they adjust the pass mark accordingly.




  • Any ideas on average how many have been taken on from previous campaigns?




  • Any ideas on average how many have been taken on from previous campaigns?

    I asked previously what the squad sizes were and was told approx 40+ (but can vary) and I'm almost certain the latest calls were for intake 10 (may) so round about 50% (actual figure is maths I can't do).

    Edit- about 400 odd.




  • A bit selfish but I'm hoping for a few drop-outs along the way.

    Could happen.

    It's a long process, we could still be sat here in the same position a year from now, that might be too much for some folk.




  • Obviously since the campaign was launched there have been what 3/4 new squads getting calls and possibly good portion of those could be included in these numbers as people who had done this as a fall back and no longer need to be involved in the process.

    Well so I'm hoping anyways.

    I think I seen some post that they had.

  • I'm just catching up with this thread today. Beginning to worry a bit as I've had no letter. I live in North Down and scored 65-70. My name is begging of alphabet both first and surname. UID early also......




  • It is a horrible thought to come this far and think it could go no further but the previous campaigns have taken in large amounts and continued to work down the list picking people out of this campaign who had scored 60-63 last year to be progressed ... so we can only hope that out of the 900 that even the last 100 will get called up




  • Don't forget of the 169 that scored 70%+ a proportion could fail PCA, vetting or medical. Or just drop out for some reason.
    Then they go to the next on the list :)

    I'm still feeling pretty confident even with the upcoming elections and possible new Justice Minister.
    If they put a hold on recruitment this could be last campaign for while so they could exhaust the list. Or they could want to boost numbers and again exhaust the list.

    I'm a glass half full kinda guy :D

    I had a similar request in and got the same answer obviously.

    I noted that yours asked how many they were taking depending on funding. Did they answer that bit?

    Thanks




  • 60-70 for me. sorry for the delay, only coming across this thread now.

    Also no letter

    Hi,

    I didn't submit the request I just happened to see it a few days ago so (on the 'whatdotheyknow' website) so I registered to receive an email when any updates occurred. I didn't notice if they answered that section though.

    I followed another one that was worded slightly different but it hasn't been answered yet.




  • Would be interesting to see if there was a similar request for the previous campaign.

    Ah

    The other one would be mine. They have answered it with a similar answer.

    There was. Their intention on the previous campaign was for 378 recruits I think. However that is just from memory.
    The number of passes is very similar obviously so I'm hazarding a guess they may have a similar plan for this campaign. The previous one was set back by funding cuts.

  • Hey guys first time poster on here and have to say it's a great thread. You may find it of interest that they need to recruit new officers into 2019 if funding permits. So I think this intake could be as large as previous ones but as usual slow in the processing.
