What's your point? I've known plenty of male pilots (myself included) who've also come out of an assessment believing that we've stuffed it up and don't have a chance of getting the job, but then were successful. Maybe we're just humble and too hard on how we performed for such an important event?

And plenty of pilots (male and female) who've come out of a recruiting assessment loudly proclaiming they totally aced it, and are guaranteed of a job. And when the rejection letter arrives it wasn't their fault, the recruiters were too biased/stupid/blind to see their obvious brilliance...
