Yeah man..the last two groups went to progress but the other one is coming to 43 now..it had to be balanced i guess coz 43 now has 3 groups while progress had just one,actually just two people..so now they have two groups there..the 1st two groups from 43 finished so just one group is here and the ones we expect later this month..
I got hold of a few,thanks..actually ni mamovie tunataka...lol

On the application form..when you go to your profile on jobs applied,you can go down to where it reads certificate and under the space with grades..type in (English-Grade,Maths-Grade,Physics-Grade) then also write Average Mean Grade..that should sort out your application..
Don't be worried,if you have met the minimum requirements and you went through the steps properly,they will call you and verify as the process continues about the grades..all the best..

The first aptitude test will be conducted at Embakasi Air Base.They will first verify your documents at the KQ office then you'll head to the Military Base.They will check your height and weight after which you do a series of short timed exams,inclusive of chemistry chemical equations,physics-pulley system,differential speeds,loads etc.mathematics,mechanical reasoning,flight instrument readings(you'll be lectured for about five minutes on this section).Just make sure your speed and accuracy is very high.Cheers.

Thursday Aptitudes

Hey guys,just to ease tension abit..things are really easy for the 1st stage but its the anxiety and panic that makes many have careless mistakes..please note that no calculators are allowed..you just need a biro..nothing else
Maths is simple calculations like quadratics,simultaneous equations and basic algebra,making subject of the formula,relative speed and simultaneous equations..also know conversions e.g. from inches to feet..there is a question asking how many cms make an inch..as direct as that and all questions have choices,make educative guesses by ellimination if you can..Chemistry was kinda hard but it will be so to everyone so dont stress about it..relax people,eat well coz you will spend the whole day there and no lunch so heavy breakfast from home.
Pay attention in the small lecture you will be given on how to interpret aircraft equipment and all will go well..
Anything you guys need to know just use this forum,will guide you through the process and hopefully see you soon..but i doubt you will find our group still here because we are almost done..cheerz ladies and gents and all the best..dont panic,relax..work fast and accurate..you will be surprised how easy the questions are but limited time,i can assure you most wont finish the questions..
