Perhaps without Multipass on a permanent basis, as they have done recently. I'd be surprised if they chopped even more out, then applying for ANS truly would be a marathon in comparison. I spoke to an ATCO over the last few months who said he's seeing more and more student ATCOs struggling to validate, but that could be due to an increase in volume of trainees alone rather than a percentage increase in people finding validation challenging. Plus it's not representative of the whole of the UK, just that single airport.

But still, a comprehensive selection process is a good thing in the long run.
