    Districts are allocated as per operational demand.

    You will get a list of available districts in your induction pack.

    You have up to 4 choices. Equally weighted.

    Thanks. So is it the case where you are presented with 4 districts where there is operational demand and you get deployed to whichever one of these you choose?

    You will have a list of all districts available you will then select 4 that you would like to work in but you are not guaranteed to get one of your choices. You could get posted anywhere depending on operational needs.

    Understood. And if you don't receive your most ideal district are transfers possible at all?

    Anyone know of anyone just choosing one choice or 2 choices in their available districts ? i know it says you can choose up to 4 equal weighing, but do you think thats an incentive to choose 4 so that you will get at least one of your choices ?

    As stated... it says “you can choose upto 4 districts”

    I am aware of some people who have chosen 1 district and got it.... im also aware of cases that people have chosen 4 districts and not got any of them.

    Some districts may also not be available when it comes to that stage.

    Hope this helps

    Does anybody have any information on applicants applying from the Republic with regards to education criteria?

    Nope. When we applied we ticked a box saying we are willing to work anywhere in NI. So it's tough luck

    I'm on my second try, failed first one at IST by 5 marks and now I'm currently at the PCA stage. I applied again for 2020 just as a backup, hopefully I don't need it.

    Have you tips for the IST stage?

    Has anyone got an email acknowledgement for submitting an application?

    Just find as many situational judgement and verbal reasoning questions online and just keep practicing. I just got the pass mark for the IST in the last campaign so progressed by the skin of my teeth. Also there are some people that run classes to help with the IST, I didn't use any of them so can't comment on how helpful they are.

    It may take a couple of days


  • Registered Users Posts: 40 MUFC1


    I have applied twice, 1st time done the classes and failed the IST.. 2018 done it again and passed, just waiting on my medical now, situational judgement I found easy enough, verbal reason tough as it can come down to one word to what your answer should be.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 28 Martykel3


    Is there anywhere that does private coaching for the IST test?

    I have Applied roughly 6times now and I struggle with it. The 2018 campaign I missed the pass mark by 1 which was heartbreaking.

    Would just love some guidance to help me through the IST stage.

    Many from the ROI apply? I’m not gonna wait for AGS to launch a recruitment further on this year. I’ve applied to PSNI yesterday, still no confirmation, is this normal?
