from what I remember (and I took stage 2 a hell of a long time ago) you dont compete with eachother as such during any part of the selection, things may have changed, however I was told "back in the day" that they could take everyone in the room, if everyone met the standards.

I think the only competition is, as you said, competing against the high standards CTC set, if you meet them at any stage of selection, you move on to the next stage. I know that at stages 2 and 3 it seems like a competition because there is more interaction between applicants, and at stage 4 it is just you and the aircraft, but I think generally speaking, the selection emphasis is on meeting the required grade, not filling a pre-set number of available spaces.

I could be wrong, it was nearly 2 years ago to the day that I went to stage 2!
