The 3 prisons use the same merit list. Its called a cluster. Yes I've experienced this and it all worked out fine.

Mine too! I keep forgetting that one because it's my last choice. Good to know someone else is in the same boat as me.

Ss say they don't pick n choose...
But they do...
In reality if you had Someone who passed with A+ and A's and someone who just scraped thru, who would you want to spend around £45,000 on from the yearly budget?

Yeah, you are right. I spoke to them and they said it goes on 'operational needs' (I assumed this meant diversity needs) and on scoring from the RAD.

Shitty if you had an unlucky day but that's life. I got some A's and B +'s but obviously this isn't enough since people on here got positions before me who had RAD after. They said I couldn't retake it to try get higher marks either so I give up. It's a strange way of doing it since they don't empty the merit list, instead they re recruit and those new people if they score higher go in front of you.

Probably going to look at probation now instead.
