NPPF Step 2 Legal Examination

All candidates wishing to apply for the National Police Promotion Framework (NPPF) Step Two Legal Examinations in 2019, must refer to the NPPF Candidate Handbook 2019.  This handbook contains all information that candidates will need in terms of the rules, syllabus, how to apply, details of the assessment process, and results and feedback.  Any queries about the examination should be directed to your Force Examinations Officer.

Note regarding Inspectors exam results 2018 (from page 24 of the handbook):

All results and feedback reports will be issued to candidates within eight weeks of the examination, so candidates should expect the results by 4th December 2018. Due to the number of candidates taking the examination, the time for receiving results cannot be shortened. The Selection and Assessment Unit takes all measures to ensure that the answer forms are scanned in accurately and the examination is then marked by an occupational psychologist and checked for accuracy. The results lists and feedback reports are then generated and checked. We understand that it can be frustrating for candidates to have to wait for results, but the marking and checking of the results goes through several stages to ensure accuracy before being released to forces and candidates.

Examination Dates:

Sergeants’ – Tuesday, 12 March 2019 (Closing date for registration 30 November 2018)

Inspectors’ – Tuesday 8 October 2019 (Closing date for registration 1 July 2019)

Please refer to the NPPF Candidate Handbook 2019 for details on applying.

Candidate Feedback Reports will be sent to candidate/Force e-mail addresses within eight weeks of the examination date.
