Apologies if this has ben dealt with elsewhere... I first contacted my prospective unit about joining as a Direct Entry Officer back in March. I took (and passed) my AIB at the end of October and everything was fine in the subsequent medicals in early December. I am now "awaiting selection". Can anyone give me any idea how long this period normally lasts? At what point do I assume that (for whatever reason) I have not been, and won't be, selected? Am I likely to hear anything before my 'anniversary' of first expressing interest comes around? Keen to get going now! Many thanks for any help, R.N.
