Congratulations!

Huge congratulations to all those with good news today!

It's reassuring to see people coming out of stage 3 with good results... fingers crossed for next week that i'll be able to post a happy message...

Stage 3!

I was in stage 2 last Friday, heard I got through a couple of days ago. Really happy as I found DART pretty tough (weirdly did better in section 6 than section 5). Is anyone else doing stage 3 on November 1st? Congrats to all those who have passed

Weekend results?

Does anyone know if NATS send out pass/fail emails on a weekend or is it only during the weekdays the emails are sent out?

Thanks

Considering they are sent by HR and they most likely work normal office hours I doubt they are sent on weekends, I've never heard of it anyway.

Hey all!! This is my first post and sadly it's not a good one! I had my stage 1 exam on 3rd October and a few days ago i got an email to say i was unsucessful! I know that i can try again in a year or 6months but i was just wondering what advice anyone has to give me? I heard that a lot of peopel in the college passed on their 2nd or 3rd attempt but i dont know if i can wait that long!

I also had a look at Eurocontrol but ireally do not fancy that

Now that you know what to expect, you can prepare a lot better for the next time round. I failed Stage 1 on my first attempt (personality questionnaire was MEAN then) and fell at the final hurdle on my second attempt...
I'm on November's course, so I'm proof that it can be done

Applied 14 weeks ago now and not heard anything. Had a few emails saying they were looking at my application but nothing else. Anyone else in this situation?

stage 3 results

I had my stage 3 on the 16th, anyone from then get their results yet?
The wait is agonising, judging from here, it looks like some who done their S3 on 15th have their results, so hopefully mine will come sooooon.

Some interesting comments here. It's quite easy to fall at the final hurdle. What you do is you turn up, and after a day of questions, they say you didn't make the grade. At least, that was my experience.

Nothing to it really.

Congratulations Kimmikins. It's good to hear that good old fashioned commitment still works on occasion. This is my second attempt, so fingers crossed for me. Thinking about it, I do not recall seeing any posts from people who got through the selection process first time. I guess people who do are perhaps less likely to go on forums like this, but I think it is a fairly rare outcome anyway.

As for "walking into a job".... If only it were that easy!!

Im disappointed with NATS, as posted before, sat all stage 1 tests on 26th september but its nearly a month later now and no communication from them. Emailed last week and still nothing. I wouldnt mind at all if id failed to get through but id have just appreciated some response for some finality from it all. Good luck to all those still getting through the stages
