CX has changed its computer base test for the first interview (Stage One A) and those tests can be found on LatestPilot.

For the Reaction Speed Test, does anyone know which level is the closest one to the one in the real test? I found the hard level one on LatestPilot is insanely fast.

Submitted mine in mid-April and no news as yet.

hey cfdchan, I too have applied in mid April with no news. It wasn't like this when I applied last year as it was quick before. I've been gathering info about the process from different people. PM me to share contacts.

Didn't make it to the next stage. Now, thinking about reapplying for CX but realized that they use the same cut-e test, which is kinda surprising to me. I thought about not telling CX about the test but I fear they may find out later, assuming they use the same system. So I guess I am just trying to figure out how important the consent form is to them and whether or not they will still run a background check on you. Otherwise I'll be stuck in here.
I don't think there is a consent form before taking the test but what I hear from different people is that you cannot take another cut-e test again , whether it was from cathay or dragon, after a year you've taken it. Like you said, they are ultimately the same company and would bound to share the same info. . Sucks that it has to be this way because back then if you fail one of them, you could still try the other.

I don't understand. If they are so desperate, why would they even consider to use the same aptitude test as dragon does. Sure they know there will be less people turning up for them. Anyhow, I was hoping to get re-tested after being deffered for six months. Looks likes I'll have to wait for a long while. Rainjune, thanks!

You may take a look of LatestPilotJobs, they offer some tests, they charge though.

I have googled it but couldn't find anything similar except for the complex control and applied numeracy.

As only computer-based assessment is involved in 1A assessment, should candidates dress in business attire?

Indeed. Looks weird but everyone does so you must to.

Are the unit conversion questions asking strictly going from metric-metric / imperial to imperial or are they mixed like metric to imperial?

For those who took 1A today, have you got email reply already?

By the way, the test is more tough than expected.

There is a surprising section called situational behaviour. The level is higher than "difficult" in a paid app for monitoring ability, applied numeracy and reaction speed.

Damn, how was that section like? Did they give you a scenario and ask you to rank what you would do?
