  1. Gateway Exam

    Hey all, my gateway exam is coming up and I'm like looking forward to passing it to move onto foundation just a quick question, what is the easiest way to learn all the acts, like I remember what they mean to an extent, but if you were to ask me what section 28(b) of the crime and disorder act I would have to think about it for a longer time compared to others in my cohort. (Btw, I know it is motivated with regards to racially and religiously aggravated offences). Any help would be grateful. Evidently I will be going through all the workbooks again etc, just want to reach that 60% pass mark!!
  2. Gateway - March 2017

    Is anyone going to be at the introduction evening on the 20th of March for gateway?
  3. Hi all, I have a Audio checking test on Thursday and I am trying to find some online reading or a free online test to practice myself regarding this test. However, google is giving me all wrong results. Just wondering if someone here has a great link for this type of psychometric test? Cheers,
  4. Questions regarding the SC Process

    thank you for the reply. I highly appreciate it. many thanks,
  5. Hi all, I am going to attempt to join the specials process again I just wondered if someone could explain the STAR acronym in more detail? I cannot seem to find the answer on Google, all I seem to get is pages about American Police stars. And any advice for the application and assessment day - if allowed? Thanks,
  6. Hampshire Alert

    I saw this too, I signed up and my confirmation email was found in my spam section, check there
  7. I appreciate all the comments people have given me, however no one has actually answered the initial question; How many times can one fail? .. (Hampshire police only) ---- As stated above, the written exam. Thanks for the kind words Thank you for the kind words and well done on your years of service Thank you I do not wish to declare what disability it is, thats why My written english is fine when I am using a computer, writing essays and whatnot, however under pressure makes my english go a bit crazy and rambojambo and my handwriting.. my my, haha! Thanks for the information And I have an english tutor already in place.
  8. Thanks for the reply, Indeed I do 'get the hint' - I believe that joining the police as a special just isn't my time yet - as I am a strong believer in always pursuing your dreams, so I wont give up that easy. I am fine for the interview and Judgement test - the thing that fails me (all three times) is the written exam, which is down to my disability. - which is why I am going to take some extra English lessons in written styles and whatnot to improve it With regards to volunteering - I already am volunteering with the police under a different role so at least I have my foot in the door so to speak.
  9. Good day, Just a question - how many times can a person fail the specials assessment centre?.. till hampshire pretty much say 'no more' and having to wait a few years for the somewhat ban to retry to be lifted? (<this is my guessing) I recently found out I didn't achieve the score required to progress onto the fitness test & I am fully aware that there probably wont be another requirement stage for some time... (yay for budget cuts!) so I am just wondering to either try again in the future or just leave it this time.. I have failed 3 times now - which is quite embarrassing and frustrating, especially when I have friends who passed it with flying colours and be in the gateway/foundation system already

  11. Hampshire Specials Recruitment Event

    Hey Henry, It was a good session, got to meet other candidates, and staff members from sargents and special etc, the event is all about the role of a special and what to expect from the training etc. the wear everyone I saw wore smart casual/suits. It is good fun and you will enjoy it! Jamie
  12. Hampshire Specials Recruitment Event

    Sure, Just did!
  13. Good day, Just a quick question on the above title, I have to attend a Specials Recruitment Event before my actual Specials assessment day... and I am guessing this is new with the new built system they have with recruitment as I didn't have to attend one of these before. My question is - does anyone know what this event is going to be about? And perhaps a suggested dress code?... does the 'no jeans' rule still apply considering it is located at Netley for this type of event. The E-mail I got doesn't state why the event is needed.. I am heading to this event tomorrow - so it will be an interesting experience, I'm sure. Kind regards, Jamie
  14. Hey Hampshire peeps, I have my third assessment center on the 23rd of July, Will anyone from this site be joining me? mine will be from 1pm.
  15. Volunteering as 'Police Staff'
