Yes, it appears it has! There's not been any announcement about this, but it seems it's been quietly removed from the recruitment website.

As above it has been removed, hence why I created this topic today. Best of luck to everyone!

Can someone please go up to Bernard and say "I told you so, Sir".....

Who wants to be on standby to do the same when they drop the must live in London requirement?

Well if they drop the residency requirement it will be well and truly opening the flood gates again, which isn't necessarily a bad thing!

I know the special route they've now made it that if you have an English GCSE you don't have to do the written tests on your Day One.

Any grade requirement or above a C grade etc? Any details to which I can add here (that's allowed, within reasons) thanks.

For the MSC to PC I believe it's a grade C and above. Not to sure if it applies to the external route though.

GCSE English from 5 - 10 years ago doesn't mean anything. It says what your standard of English was like back then. This is purely another way of cutting costs and cutting corners. Everybody should be subject to the written tests that the rest of us have passed.

As long as they increase the assessment centre pass mark back up to what it used to be, because the quality of some of the recruits that are coming through at the moment are quite frankly, shocking, to put in very mildly indeed.

Exactly, however I do think it takes into account that a written test is completed at the MSC assessment centre.

Ah, that's a good point... But if I remember correctly, regs do two and MSC do one??? I think???

That's correct. It might be that they accept that if they're doing the job that that is enough. There's a lot of time being wasted which shouldn't be. 

I know currently that the latest intake of MSC to PC has spent at least a weeks worth of training days redoing NCALTs to systems they already have access to.
