I think they should let the people who have further to travel know first, so that we have more time to plan our trip to Melb.
My "check email" button is just about worn out!
I guess the longer we wait now, the shorter we have to wait later.

Now that makes me feels heaps better...
We should all know in less than 6 months.

Thanks, it was great to get it out of the way early. Now just some more of the waiting game.

The best advice I can give is what's already been said previously on this forum - be prepared for any questions pertaining to stressful situations and conflict, be relaxed and be yourself. There's a set of formal question which they ask, but of course depending on your answers they will probably deviate from them with further questions.

best of luck to all, I like howsweetitis's optimism - we'll all know in about 6 months

I don't think anyone from Melbs or Syd have heard yet... Final couple of Bris interviews are today, though.

2 weeks down, 1 to go... not that I'm counting. All this waiting is the worst

Not sure, don't think I've spoken to anyone from there.. what I heard was that it was only Bris interviewing at the moment

Hopefully you all hear soon though, they said in my interview that they thought they were going through the whole process faster than previously!

Yep, I'm also still waiting.(Melbourne)! Perhaps the people who were recently interviewed in Brissy may be going for the June intake??!

Still no news in Adelaide either.
I was thinking that they might need more enrouters in Brisbane so they want to get them started first (in sept), which might mean Melbourne people might be in next group (6 weeks plus).
Hmm! I guess we will know soon.

The longer it takes the better for me. Our 3rd child is due in 2 weeks and the longer we have with her before we'd have to move to Melbourne the better. Assuming all goes well of course. Not getting too far ahead of myself!
It's probable that they're taking a whole intake from Brisbane I guess. I did my test in Syd but would much prefer an interview (assuming I get one) in Melb so I can visit the ATC centre etc

Hi all, looks like it'll be another few weeks until we hear back about how our telephone interviews went etc. I emailed HR & they said another few weeks. !

hi all...i am currently in year 12 and planning on applying for the first course i can..... it is great but also nerve racking at the same time to learn about the rigourous pre-testing, but hopefully i will go through it ok! I have already visited the melbourne centre numerous times and so hopefully that will help with the interview when and if i get that far.

Look forward to hopefully working with some of you in the future!

EMail finally came through. 5:30pm
Interviews are 'probably' in May.
At least I can relax a bit now.
Hope you all got some good news as well.

The waiting is much easier now knowing another round is definately passed. I might be able to give my fingernails a rest for a few weeks.
I am glad we all find out the same time, I would hate to read others have heard and I am still waiting.
At least with another 6 weeks till interviews I have more time to prepare. I think I should have the ASA website memorised by then.
Now I can organise a trip to the Tower and TCU.

to those that have been or are currently in the process of applying for atc, approximately when do you first get a call or email to come to an interview or testing day after you first apply? just that im intending on staying in nz for a few months at the start of next year but would like to be over here well in time for when it all begins.

cheers
