    Not what you need at a medical....adds more stress no doubt?

    In fairness it was right at the end so everything else had been fine. I would have been interested to see my blood pressure if it needed to be taken at the end instead!!

    I was nearly late as my GWR train was cancelled and the railway was having a shocker of a morning. The irony was not lost on me!!!

    You’ve had a medical so have got the job pending references basically. You should have had a conditional offer prior to the medical?

    I had a verbal offer before the conditional offer where a course date was mentioned. The conditional offer is as good as a job offer, however I chose not to hand my notice in until I had my formal offer at the least (I think I waited for my contract in the end - I had plenty of time to play with as I got the offer a good 2.5 months before the course date they offered). I appreciate some have to give extended notice periods or have proposed course dates not too far in advance though.

    MMI was last Wednesday, so that was a quick turnaround.

    Depot is Bristol TM though, where are you waiting for?

    Do you possibly think it depends on what Depot you have chosen and also demand.

    My MMI and DMI were within 2 to 3 weeks of each other and I found out the results the day after. It's just now that I'm in the talent pool for HEX the waiting has really begun! I would love to know roughly how long I should expect to wait before hearing about a course. It's been 3 weeks and I can't stop checking my phone
