Passed Final Interview -> Next stages

Recommended Posts

Morpheus

After getting through the assessment centre, i have passed my final in-force interview.

 

I am worried regarding Medical / Fitness / Vetting stages.

Should i be worried regarding this bit of the process ?

Medical - only you know if there is something that might cause difficulty.  Be honest on the medical history form and if there are follow up questions answer as fully as you can.

Fitness - it's 5.4.  If you can't reach that then train.  There are several threads on the subject here.

Vetting - my personal advice would be to deactivate your Facebook account.  If there is something in your family background that is a problem you cannot do anything about it.  Be totally honest on the forms and if you are asked about anything.  The absolute worst thing you can do is not mention something that is found out.  From what I'm told by people who know more about these things than me, social media is the single biggest cause of vetting failure.

 

All above is purely my own opinion and in no way reflects any policy I am aware of.

You only need to be worried if you've been arrested, majorly unfit, or have an ongoing medical issue.

Good luck though, it's a long process, but worth it. I start tomorrow!

I agree with @MajorDisaster & @Zens Vision

Regarding fitness if you don't think you'll pass then get down to your local park and do bleep tests as that will prepare you. Learn your turns. 

Medical - You need to declare everything on your vetting form, if there is anything that the force have concerns with then you will be invited to speak with the force doctor who will write to your GP or specialist if required. 

Vetting - Providing you are honest and upfront about everything then you should be absolutely fine, the vetting papers will go through every part of your life including medical, financial and previous history. If you have anything that is concerning you from your past like arrest or anything then MAKE SURE you declare it. 

If you have any other questions then don't hesitate to ask us it's what we're here for and the majority of us have been through it to.
