Well I'm heading down tomorrow for the long awaited stage 3, and my laptop decided to pick this exact moment to crash and refuse to work and the guy I've given it to says my hard drive might be dead so I would have lost all of my interview preparation stuff.
So now I'm a bit worried haha.

I hope this isn't too intrusive of a question as I'm sure there are others here who haven't completed stage 3 yet...

During the stage 3 interview, was any knowledge of ATC required AT ALL? I'm prepared for the main bulk of stuff giving life examples and situations and such but I would be coming into this profession completely blind and wondered if any knowledge was required to answer any questions?

I can understand if no one wants to say anything incase it gives an advantage but I figured it would hardly give me an advantage with a day to go as I can't learn that much in that space of time! Thanks for any insight.

Those waiting for stage 2..

I had an email today regarding stage 2 dates. It said that they would be releasing dates soon for stage 2 and that they will be held in June, July and August, and to email back only if you have changed your mind due to the long wait.

Eek! Not long now!!

Correction to my last post - July, August and September are the months that the interviews will be held.

Excitement caused some confusion

No, Megamc. I received the same email and certainly didn't reply. Passed through to this stage in August last year...probably completing on a house next Friday. I'll hopefully become a landlord in a few years since I'm not holding my breath or a speedy move between Stages 2 & 3 (should I get through obviously).

I got my email too, so it makes four of us Even though I only completed the online assessments 3 weeks ago. Hopefully, it will move fast, I'm so excited!

Btw, I do believe conc1845 is planning on attending stage 2, since he said he didn't reply to their email.

I'm going too!

''Hanima'', you're a really lucky one, I've past my tests last year in March, so I've been waiting for more than an year!!!
Anyway ''manusa'' you have to think there are other people outside this forum who's waiting for their chances, not everyone who's waiting has logged in on this site.
Never mind, at last will get there in the end!

Sorry, the 2nd part was for ''Megamc''

You're really lucky ''Hanima'', I've past my tests last year in March, I've been waiting for more than an year!
About how many will attend Stage 2 - you have to consider that there are many people outside this forum who are waiting for their chance.
