Officer Recruitment rejected because of GCSEs?

The link that Kais posted above shows the required Recruit Test Scores for each branch. In the up to date version of the document it was pulled from, the matrix now just has a 0 instead of a score for all officer jobs.

What it means for recruitment, I couldn't say but if I were to hazard a guess it's that the NSRT has been axed for officer roles.

I believe that NSRT was suspended last year for a short period as a trial for the Officer roles. From what I read the trial wasn't successful and the NSRT was re-instated within a couple of months.

Well the matrix also has minimum requirements for GCSEs, but I haven't got a clue what the AFCO are doing to weed people out.


I believe the AFCO's are using GCSE results entered into a score matrix. If your score from your certificates matches what you need for the Job role then you pass go. If they don't match then you may be put on hold until NSRT starts again or you could be lucky enough to be offered a different role.

Spoke with a couple CAs and been advised if I do want to try again/continue to make a new application and they will keep my new app in progress as far as they can until either they reopen and I can take the NSRT (they don't expect this to happen before Christmas currently) or I retake my GCSE English in order to not need to take the test.

I'm in a bit of a similar situation...
This thread was about a temporary situation we were in a couple months ago around GCSEs, but that's gone now and people are taking NSRTs again, the UCAS point requirements have always been there so you're probably best off starting a new thread to get the right eyes on it you need or use the search function to find others that have been in similar situations in the past. Good luck!

What is the latest on your own situation?
PMU'd by Capita for history of eczema ( annoying because only mentioned it to my gp while I was there for something else and could have been easily treated over counter or just not at all) so getting records together, which is taking forever, to see a specialist to see if I can contest or not, hopefully it turns out to be something else but either way I've heard that process has a huge backlog so will be a while.
