I don't have any emails, I take it that means I was probably unsuccessful?
Nvm, I was unsuccessful also

I’ve reached the required standard but they are unable to offer me an interview immediately and I’ve been placed on hold

I too received an email saying it is on hold, got a 6 for the apprenticeship and a 4 for the BFO role. Is this likely on hold because of a lack of vacancies in the area?

I also scored a 4, I answered in the way that they asked in the job description and I still only scraped through 🙄

Seems we all scored 4 then! What is the highest? Hopefully this still means we’ll get an opportunity at some point. Don’t think I’ll hold my breath though after readying about others waiting for so long!

6 is the highest. I believe it’s 3= acceptable 4=good 5=strong 6= Outstanding

They have you on hold forever then withdraw your application. It’s really poor!

The whole thing seems bizarre, from this thread alone, seems like all of us are from police and/or military backgrounds, would have expected wealth of experience and ideal candidates but must not be.

I completely agree, I had high hopes for those reasons but not good enough it seems. Maybe they’ve had more applications than they expected and are still dealing with a massive backlog so they’ve just stuck us all on hold. I’ll try and stay positive!

4 is good 👍🏻 think it’s been a tough campaign this one. Can I just ask (I’m at a loss where I went wrong) how did you answer on you application form. Did you look at the behaviours on the success profiles and cross ref with the list of essential criteria (if you see what I mean?)

Just got an email for the central apprenticeship campaign that I’ve reached the required standard but my application has been put on hold, I only scraped through with a 4, it seems really tough this time round
Exact same as me, nightmare 😳

I wasn’t either! I’ve been successful with overall 5 before and only scored a 2!! I really don’t know where I have gone wrong and it’s so annoying as you can’t get feedback. Think it’s a fine art passing these shifts

Where do you think you went wrong? .
Yeah I only scored a 2 also. Any idea how they calculate your score?

I also had 4.
During the application it also stated ex military are guaranteed and interview under their scheme.
I got a feeling that everyone who applied and passed are on hold.

I’m in no rush anyway, still so 4 months left to Finish my Probation\PCDA and get my free degree

“I applied for Central and received the same email, also happened on the previous campaign and I received the interview email 5 days later then the interview link the day after so fingers crossed it won't be too long this time!”

Fingers crossed the same happens this time!
