RossGeller, I'm still at Stage 1 (second attempt). I was held up due to not supplying enough info on my optical prescription but nobody informed me of this. By the time I gave them the info they'd shut the window. A bit annoying!

Rang sereral times today but could only leave messages so going to email a contact now.

conc1845, sorry to hear about that. From my experience email is always the way to go. HR is excellent and they are extremely helpful, but also they always have their hands full! I have also called and left messages a while ago, but ultimately, the email is the preferred form of contact. Let us know what you find out for all the others at stage 1 who might be in the same situation.

Devil Feeling left out?

My guessing is that everyone is being held at their respective stage until numbers are correct. No point waist resources sending 20 people through a test if 50 can do it at a time. Just relax for now...

Svix - It's pretty much this, there's a little additional thing but it's not that difficult. Of course we're explicitly told not to divulge details at each stage so can't really say much more!
Hi Guys, I'm new to this forum lark so forgive my ignorance . I am waiting confirmation of a Stage 3 date in August and wondered if there is any more information on the new interview format.

2nd time of applying and waited a long time now for this interview, don't want to screw it up and have to wait this long again!

Cheers

luke12,

I haven't had anything apart from standard 'we've received your application' since applying again middle of last week... Maybe they're swamped already!

I think I can second what RossGeller said with email being the way forward. HR replied fairly quickly saying my application is still active and I will receive dates once they become available. So to everyone waiting for Online Test results, give it a few days (read: weeks) I imagine.

helichopta made sense with getting the in numbers before opening the test doors!

Spectacles and Maths...

Hello folks,

I submitted my application to Nats last week. I wear spectacles but all the info regarding the eyes took me by surprise. SO I sent the application anyway idicating "no glasses". The next day I visited the optician, collected all the numbers, and sent the data to Nats the following day. I have read someone lost the chance because of a similar issue, what are your impressions?

Other than this, has any of you guys sat already to the stage 1 math exams? Could you please specify what kind of exercises there are?

Thank you and good luck to everyone in this pursuit!

Zigurat, I don't think you'll have a problem if you sent them the data already. You did the right thing and I'm pretty sure you explained in the email. Now you just have to wait a bit. Worse thing that can happen is to make a new submission. By the way, can't you edit it?

I don't know how the system is now, but I thought we could log into our applications and edit them, or at least some information of it. Is that possible at all? Did you hear from HR already?

I have no idea. I didnt try to reenter my application though... I stuck to the mail they sent me right after filling the application form, so I tried sending there the info I collected afterwards.

No news at all so far.

So, what stage are you in? Is this the first time you apply?

mts1, ehehehehe. Like everywhere else, when people go on vacation the team becomes smaller and can't handle things as quickly. But they work alright.

Some ATC Situations?

Hello! I am Currently working at an FTO that has recently started training ATCīs...in a bid to help them with their English skills I was wondering if anyone has any situations from your experience that I could use as questions to get them problem solving (thinking quickly in English)? I.E. If īthis` happened what would you do...

Thanks :-)
