Sergeants' exam update

In light of the disruption with the Inspectors' exam, we have been undertaking urgent work to ensure you will not experience IT issues during your exam next month. 

As a precaution, we will be holding the Sergeants' exam across three days. The exam will take place on the 10, 11, and 12 November. We have shared the date/s for your force with your Force Examinations Officer, who will be scheduling all their candidates in.  

You will receive the date of your exam from your force examination officer as soon as possible. They are managing this process so it can meet both force and candidate needs.

We want to make sure that the approximately 6,500 officers from all forces are able to complete their exams during the three days. While we had hoped to have confirmed dates with individuals by Tuesday, 27 October 2020, the logistical challenge means dates will be issued to candidates by their forces in the coming days. 

We understand that you have put in an extraordinary amount of work in preparation for this exam, in addition to the work you did earlier this year, before the exam was postponed due to the restrictions in place. We apologise for any disruption or inconvenience caused and want to reassure you that the actions we are taking are to ensure that the Sergeants' promotion exams can take place smoothly and successfully.
