I think those with poor academic results are kidding themselves if they think aptitude or attitude is more important.

Good results at school or uni implies intelligence, maturity and a willingness to work hard. Why wouldn't BA look to recruit that sort of person (regardless of background)? The company may have dispensed with applicants with good academic backgrounds who also had experience on jets, so who knows why they now feel untried cadets is the way forward...

I suspect the majority of the successful candidates will have strong school and/or University results. And most will be middle class because most Nigels have that kind of a background. There will be exceptional candidates without great academical results who will get through.

That may be you.
