I got a letter from them last week. I was told they don't want me. Perhaps the fact that you didn't get a letter yet is because they are organising a date and time for you... But they did say the finals were this week

I attended the final interview this week and wanted to know when the results of the interview would be out?

i.e when would then ten cadets who have been chosen be informed and when would they start?

Thanks a lot

usually you know if you got it the same day as the first round of CAO offers,it has been for the last 2 years.I think this is the very last stage after the medical where you get the letter from Corporal O' Dea so there must be some contact in between.how many interviewed you for the final interview????

so you should be contacted by them long before the CAO offers go out if they want u to go for a medical?

And you will find out if you passed the medical and have got the cadetship at the same time as the CAO offers?

Is this correct?

5 people interviewd me, 3 from the IAC, 1 Form Parc and 1 from the competitions section.

Also another seperate interview with a psychologist as wel as a hand eye coordination test.

Thanks for that,

Psychologist was a man, very nice chap, it wasnt daunting at all. (compared to the interview before the board)

With the psychologist you never know if you have done well or not. Its extremely difficult to figure out what he makes of you and if he thinks your suitable.

Ya they are taking on ten this year. From what i know there were about 60 going to final interview, although that seems a lot considering there were only bout 40 at the aptitude tests (for non leaving cert candidate)

Duth Roll "ya if you pass the medical and get the offer its the same day as the cao."

RU sure about this duth roll? I spoke to a fella there recently who got as far as the medical last year and he said he was told he would be going for the medical on roughly the same day as the cao offers went out?? i.e. that the medical was about a week later!!
