Just had my NATS tests at 10am this morning.. Sitting in a bar with a pint now. Speaking to a few people after, we all felt like a beer! About 70% passed initial test I would say and of course as we all well know the diagramming and cubes were solid! Good luck to all... Read the paper they sent you and you WILL be fine!

I know no1 wants to tell and i understand why, but has anyone got a basic outline of how stage 2 goes and what sort of tests they are. Not asking for answers just general tips on what to prepare for. Got stage 2 on friday.
Thanks

The feast package is AFAIK still a part of stage 2 and a description of that is available on wikipedia, the NATS tests are similar to the FEAST.

Cool omg

Just had my stage 1 selection test in Southampton Today 12pm.

I honestly thought i'd failed the first test because i hadn't accounted for 'some' of the questions but thankfully I got through to the 2nd set of questions.

I ran out of time too and had to guess the last 4-5 on each test and i found the cubing questions very difficult.

Does anyone have any idea what the average pass score is for those 2nd two tests? i would say I did about 60-70% on test 1 and 40-50% on test 2 ... am i doomed?

The biggest piece of advice I can give people going for their stage 1 interview is to read the documentation you are sent.

Then read it again.

And again.

And again.

You get the idea

Thanks Jimbo,

Been over the document many times but I have a 5 hour train journey so I may go over it a couple more time. I will be able to recite it word for word afterwards haha.

Just had my invitation to stage 2 - sat the tests at 1100 yesterday so they are really rattling through them!

Wondered if anyone had any more (acceptable) info about the computer testing at stage 2? I remember some links to the FEAST test, but can't find them now...

Thanks! Good luck to all waiting on results.

Wink Cool :)

That's great, almost no wait for you.

I am on the opposite... I did it on the 26th, know some people from the same day, already got some positive and negatives, but my answer still didn't get to my e-mail... (kinda wish what's holding it up... but i am guessing it is "classified" :P).

Good luck on st2
