    Firstly, good luck with the interview.

    Secondly, no-one on here will be able to give you a definitive answer but people will chuck their two pennies in and here's mine for starters.

    Open cert - probably not on your first attempt. They usually like to keep you contained until they're happy you are a safe enough shot and would be competent enough to make the right decisions about where to shoot each calibre.

    .243 - if you've got the right sort of land and have put in for it as a need for a certain quarry there's no reason why not. If you can't justify it then you may struggle.

    DSC level 1 may be compulsory soon but it isn't at the moment although anything that can help educate about what you're off to shoot can only help, and this includes stalking with experienced hunters too.

    Best of luck

    Do they do territorial restrictions in Scotland? I had an idea that they eschewed that particular pointless bit of interference.
