Failed rad. Thoughts?

Post by Rexrippington » Mon Dec 22, 2014 9:58 pm

Evening all. Long term lerker.

As it says found out I failed today. After worrying about all the other aspects it was the usual role play fail which I actually felt confident about.

And for reference I took my test on the 11th at Manchester so it's not taken long.

Anyway I'll be reading up on them on here anywhere really. But I had a few questions.

I failed 5 of 7 aspects. Some by 1% some by more. I'm going to ring SS in the morning to find out if Ill be offered a retake as my preferred prison has taken off there recruitment. But do you think ill qualify? And what time do they open?

Think I saw on here something about a course they offer to help coach you on the role plays and its offered with the resit. But as I've not seen mention of it since I may have miss read but if anyone knows of such a thing I'd like to hear about it.

They may contact you over time to go to a development day if you narrowly failed on one aspect, no timeframes on this however, you can call them in the morning, they are open 8am - 6pm, you'll have their number on your emails.

Good luck and don't give in at the first hurdle if it's what you really want to do.

Sorry to hear that you failed, dont beat yourself up though,

i failed on the English in June, and got offered a retake last week so took quite a while but i passed.

Maybe ring up, but keep practicing. i bought the prison officer book off the internet and it helped me alot with the role plays.

good luck!

It's been almost 3 years, hoping he has either passed and working in the prison or found a different calling, but at least you used the search function so that's one positive.
