I had my stage 1 on the 4th at 10am, just got email inviting me to stage 2 now.

I'm quite surprised as i only managed around 75% on the 2nd and 3rd test.

Well done
As I said I'm sure to have failed. Looks like NATS send answer to people who passed before those who failed

If you haven't been replied to since July I suspect you may be out of luck.

owensamuel: Chose the 23rd, it was either that or the 16th and 17th. Busy over the next few days so went for the last date to give me enough time to prepare, although i'm not sure what to expect as i haven't researched the second stage much as i didn't think i'd get through.

Frenchmax: Give them time, i'm sure they have loads of results to get through and you'll probably hear very soon.

mtanz0 - they seem to be holding back applications from re-applicants. Thanks for your kind words though.

Oh I see. Was that a stage 1 response you were waiting for. Sorry didn't mean to be rude just from what I had read it was generally around two weeks max.

Took Stage 1 on the 4th and just been invited for Stage 2. Slightly surprised as I only answered about 40 of the diagrams and 30 of the cubes.

Gone for the 11th for stage 2, short notice but the other dates I am out of the country on holiday which is a slight problem.

I hear you can't really prepare for stage 2. Is this true?

Leave yourself a lot of time, there's only one road in and out of Whiteley and it's busy. If you're coming East down the M27 from the M3 then there's usually around 3/4 of a mile of traffic queuing in the inside lane to come off at that junction and you can expect similar on the Westbound side as well.

If it's the Premier Inn by J9 then you'll miss of that traffic although you'd want to be leaving at least half an hour, probably a bit more. If you get there early, then read a book

I had my stage 2 on the 5th, just got the results and now stage 3 on the 16th
Who else from my stage 2 has their results? (btw, I was the bus driver in the suit)

I'm in! :-)

had an email at 9.30 this morning and through to next stage ( i had mine on the 4th at 14.00) i've gone for the 23rd for next stage as too close next week to get time off work! Anyone else doing the 23rd? i'm gonna stay in the premier inn as travelling down from essex and don't fancy leaving at 5 to get there! :-)

Yup I know, but when other people from the same day are hearing back so soon, it's not exactly encouraging :-( but no news is good news for now...:-)
