seems like just a handful of you from the responses on here. Plenty more of us sat here waiting, getting more and more jealous by the day...!

Still waiting.
Still wondering if my application has been lost.
Still telling myself it will all be fine.
Still checking my e-mails more often than is healthy!

No word from HR yet but this is the first working day of potentially 10 they have to respond so I'm not surprised.

Going to be a case of using my old (probably outdated) info to re-familiarise myself with the gist & fill in any blanks with new documents once I get a reply (this is also why I booked Sept. 11 instead of 3rd - means I have to pull 2 sick days instead of 1 but will put me in a better position).

hi lkrd1,

I applied back on the 9th July, had the confirmation email but nothing since. Sent HR an email last Tuesday - 21st and they haven't got back to me on that yet.

Hmmm this is making no sense, some people offered tests etc and others that aren't. I had an auto reply from HR that said they are reviewing the situation for stages 1 and 2 on 4th sept. It wouldn't surprise me if they put the applications on hold again....

NegativeG that's exactly the problem, some people are getting tests others that applied around the same time aren't! I have a very strange feeling that they are massively over subscribed again and if your not given tests by 4th we will end up waiting a lot longer once again!

Invite to stage 1

I just got an email to invite my to book my stage 1 test. I applied back in February 2011. I had put my application on hold due to final year University commitments. Very surprised to have received an email to book my stage 1 now but unfortunately due to work committments at Manchester Airport, I can't really get the time off and revise for a date WITHIN the next 7 days (bit short notice if you ask me). Hopefully they can understand if I put it on hold, would still love to go into ATC.

NegitiveG ,

I applied on 14/08 and not heard anything back

I applied previously last year and got to first stage interview but due to work commitment I could make the interview

at least more and more people seem to be getting invites every day. I'm sure they'll get round to us all shortly....

Yeh well fingers crossed it will come through. I emailed them this morning but had no reply, guessing they having hundreds of emails and if you get a reply you are just one of the lucky ones. Just sitting, waiting and hoping for a selection test now.
