rr9 - just do what NATS tell you in their email, and the stage 3 info sheet. When I failed my Stage 3 I was confident that if I'd focussed more on that, and less on "additional" preparation, I would have got through.

stage 2/3

@snowdude, yeah i was there on friday. i think you can practise and get better at these things, but it's true that i've always had a knack for spacial awareness games etc, so maybe it's a little bit like you either can or can't do it. i certainly wouldn't wana rule anyone out though, if you work hard i'm sure you can train your mind.
@sambatc, tbh they haven't told me a great deal, and i don't know what you mean by the stage 3 info sheet either. when i got my email today saying i'd passed, i got another one from them but it was completely blank. i'm wondering if that's a technical issue from their end and there's info on there i need to know. i'll give them a call in the next few days to see if they can explain it.

rr9 give them a call tomorrow since they need at least 2 working days to answer your request which you need to record in a voice messege to some robot

Stage 3

Be yourself
Demonstrate flexibility, thinking on your feet, team working, enthusiasm.

Prepare answers to competency type questions. Be prepared to expand and talk around your examples extensively.

Dress smart
Engage with the interviewers if they join you for lunch

Best of luck!

12 months since you did the initial online test. Don't hold your breath though, I should have been able to re-apply in October 2011......

Yeah patience is the key I think.... Is it common to go through the first time? Is there many re applicants at the college?

Does anyone knows is there an age limit for applicants? They told me in Nats that no age limit, but how does it looks in practice? Is anyone over 30 ?;(

Can anyone tell me if its a good idea that I use a mouse for the initial online assessment or is a laptop touchpad sufficient? I understand some of the practise games may be involved.

Thanks
Luke
