All the best comrades as you sit for your respective papers. Keep calm and give it your best.

To the guys going in for psychomotor, did you manage to get the joystic and flight simulator software for practice?

@aviatorette

You can get a Logitech Joystick on eBay for about $10 or locally in Nairobi for about 2k, give or take. Check out Ebrahims electronics.

For the flight sim software, that's another story. You may walk in to the iHub with a laptop, find a quiet corner and download a torrent copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator. I'll get the links for you guys soon when I get on the PC. Typing this from a phone.

Tense Times

That moment when your (my) phone rings and checking it to see a number you haven't saved. Then your (my) mind swirls, you (I) gain composure, and meekly answer, only to realise it is not Career Connect .

It is going to be a tough week, every incoming phone call is one more step closer to a mini heart attack!

Heheee:-) Relax man. All will be well! When did you do your psychometrics?

Are there more guys from the 19th group being called or emailed for the psychomotor scheduled for 4th?

Does anyone have any new unfolding info on this? Cheers guys and I wish you all the best!

Haha

Captain_GG,

It is hard man to relax oblivious of the impending call ups. I did mine on 25th, the afternoon group..

They were called, mostly though I understand there were follow up email to the contacted guys

Hoping all turns out well.

Always Welcome

Captain_GG, You are most most welcome, any time. We are a team

Aviatorette In fact because of that story my phone has now been married indefinitely to the jack pin of my sub-woofer system! No missing calls this week

Waah!

Now i totally get it why you guys are so tense! Morrisby is one test where you cant be sure whether you did well or not. The career connections lady told us to wait for calls on thursday! Fingers and toes crossed.

Cool Psychometric test - March 4th

@ Ender2 & joystic, keep calm and avoid anxiety; all shall be well.

I did mine on 25th, so, God willing, perhaps we'll be going for psychomotor together on 7th, if they don't call us up next week.

All the best with the waiting...and the rest of the interview phases ahead.

psychomotor

@dex, and all awaiting the psychomotor test, the tests are fun...just a point, no panicking! when your relaxed you enjoy them and you improve..which is practically what's required. so try to beat your self every time.
the tricky parts are the joystick. it's super sensitive and requires a delicate touch. the other sections are relatively easy. just concentrate and you will do fine.
now the wait starts again, keeping everything crossed and prayers flowing.
good luck to all expecting call backs.
