Good luck to all waiting to hear back from Stage 3!

I have mine coming up on the 24th July, so three weeks today! Anyone else sitting theirs on the same day?

I like the graph idea I will try this, It may help with recall
it's good to know they don't focus too much on this last section, takes the stress out of it a little
Thanks, hope our paths do cross
I hope today went well for you!

I think it went well, but I'm always the second guessing myself after the fact... now the waiting starts, they did mention it could a few weeks to here back.
Good luck to all who have their stage 3 coming up and to those who are waiting to hear back from the assessment day

9th July

Hi guys,
Thanks for your replies on my question regarding the Manchester Area Control Centre.
Good luck to all who are still waiting for their stage 3 and for those waiting for the results.
Anybody else here also scheduled for 9th July for stage 3?

Whilst I appreciate people are eager and wanting to get a step ahead of the process by knowing whatís going to be on the knowledge test and what aptitude assessments are taken on the day, being told this undermines the entire application process and puts both you and the people you ask at risk of being withdrawn from the process. Equally, certain assessments are conducted to specifically select a certain type of person based on their personality and aptitude, asking someone ĎWhat answers have you put and what personality have you portrayedí is simply not acceptable and if anyone helps these people, then more fool you.

Giving people advice on what to expect is fair enough, but wanting people to help you with the answers and how to manipulate certain traits just shows lack of judgment and a real lack of consciousness towards safety.

Anyway.. what do I know? Just my two cents! Rant over

Has anybody at/over their 30 days for stage 3 contacted NATS direct?

Mine was 13th but may give them a call next Friday and see if they can give any update. Sometimes makes me think the feedback email was actually commiserations.

Yeah, I'd assume that everyone received the survey email. I was told it would take approximately 30 days due to it being a new system - it definitely seems a long wait, but then again it hasn't technically been 30 days yet!

I doubt that to be the case haha, they will absolutely confirm 100% if you passed or not.

Given the new process, I think they might be running quite a few Stage 3 days first to guage the quality of applicants and get a damn good idea of how people are performing before making decisions.

With that in mind, the 30 days period might be to ensure they meet enough applicants to judge the quality of us all.

I'm on day 25, starting to get nerve wracking!

Assuming the 30 day period is being followed, then some people should be hearing back by today? Good luck to those who do. Would be keen to hear how you got on!
