Also, I don't remember if I gave them my CV up to this stage but do they base their interview on CV's (if they have them!) or is it starting from no knowledge of me whatsoever?!
If you didn't upload a CV I suggest you take one with you. All the information you need about the day will be on the email they sent you.

Hello, I'm going to the stage 2 assessment centre day on 28th June and just wondered if anyone else is and would like to meet? I'll be travelling down from York the day before and could do with calming my nerves!

Hello all,

I have my Stage 3 test next week and wondered if anyone that has attended one recently has any last minute advice?

Specific areas to revise for the interview, tasks to practice for the final Euro Control test etc?

Thanks in advance!

Just Booked onto Stage 2 Assessment Day!

Hey guys!

This thread has been super helpful so far! I got the email to book onto an assessment day this morning!

I've booked onto the 17th August!

Anyone else looking at that one? I'm travelling from Devon so have booked a hotel for the night before!

Other than reading all the information, are there any tips to help pass the other assessments? Read a lot about 'cubes'...is there any where these can be practiced?!

Thank you in advance!

In terms of all of the forms, you fill them all in and either send them off online or via post, but you will need to get a medical in person. If NATS give you permission, you can get it done by another AME that isn't the one NATS pay for in London. I have no idea if you can get it done by a medical examiner in Spain, perhaps worth finding out if there is one certified by the CAA that you could go to to save you travelling back to the UK just for a medical?
Medical needs to be done in the UK, but because there is a huge crisis with AMEs, do not expect to get it booked anytime soon...
If you are flying from Spain, you only need to spend one day here for Stage 3.
Regarding documents, you need to send them by MAIL.

I travelled up from Devon for my Stage 2 and passed a couple of weeks ago, so good luck!

My advice to you is to learn that booklet by rote - there's no way of knowing what info will be asked from it.

To be honest, I doubt you'll find anything online specific enough for practising for these tests, so just keep your brain sharp by doing brain games, try to get a good night's sleep the night before, and read the instructions thoroughly before each test

Worked for me!

Did anyone hear anything from last week's (or even this week's) stage 3 yet?

I got an email stating that my medical forms had been processed and that I would be contacted again for a medical, but without any actual confirmation that I have (or haven't) been successful at stage 3!

... trying not to read too much into the medical email without any actual official positive news!

Edit: I was successful! Awaiting medical and a November course date

Congrats! Hopefully see you then all going well with the medical.

Did they say November? Last I heard it was tentatively between October and December.

They said 'hopefully' around November time, but no confirmed date (which I guess would still also include October and December).

Have you already been through the medical? Did they arrange it pretty quickly?

I was hoping to sneak onto the course starting in a couple of weeks time but unfortunately didn't make the cut

Still waiting on a date for the medical and I passed stage 3 early June, so don't expect to hear anything anytime soon.

Been following this forum for a little while now but this is my first post!

Passed stage 0 & stage 1 within a few days of each other and get my pass emails within minutes for each (lucky i know)
I've booked on for my stage 2 for 31st august but needless to say, i'm so nervous every time i think about it!

Anyone else going on/around that date?

When did you pass your stage 1? And how long did you have to wait to recieve booklet and get the date for stage 2?

Thank you for replying and for the advice! I'm driving up, furthest I've ever driven so I'm mainly worried about that haha!

I'm heading up for the June 17th assessment day if anyone else is on that one?!

I passed my stage one 2 weeks ago now and i got the pass email within 10 minutes of completing it and the email to book my stage 2. I had to wait a few days to get all of the information for stage 2 though

Medical is a Class 3 Medical Certificate. If you look online, you will get plenty of documentation from CAA regarding it.
