Hello,

I just failed the FEAST 1 at MUAC today... 4 participants out of +- 15 went to the FEAST 2.
They told that there're no ways to prepare to the FEAST but I don't think so.
The most difficult part for me which was the "cube folding" could be prepared before. I'll know it for the next time. By the way, is it possible to retake the FEAST test again at MUAC and if yes, within what time period ?

I think you can retake the exam 2 years later if you are still within the required age limit. Cube folding seems like the part that eliminates most of the applicants.

The cube folding test is indeed a tricky one. My advice would be to find some similar tests on the internet. As for a retake, it is possible to apply again but only 2 years later than your first application. You can also ask for a feedback. They may give you some clues on what you can improve in order to be succesful during your next attempt. Good luck !

I can't fine on the Internet cube folding exercices as difficult as the Eurocontrol one.

Hello,

I wonder if there's anyone here who's been invited to take the initial tests on 30th March? And how many people are usually in a group?

Hey guys, just registered here 'cause it was about time I started getting some news from other people. I did the Phase 2 and interviews on 21st and 22nd of March and I was the only one who got through both in Phase 1 on Feb 20th and Interview. I was wondering if there was anyone here in the group who passed as well and is waiting to be invited for the medicals? So far I know no one else who has passed, so please raise your hands :P

Congrats. There should be sixteen peeps altogether for the October ab initio group and they had five or six last time I checked, in February. Also, the latest group is looking forward to meeting you in Toulouse.

Thank you! Where do you check how many people have passed until now? and man 6 people is really a low number. I'm actually amazed. Looking forward to meeting them there as well

Does anyone know if you have already passed FEAST and DART through the NATS application process, will you have to sit it again for Eurocontrol?

Whether you can apply for Eurocontrol too depends on what happened to your NATS application. E-mail masuac.students [at] eurocontrol.int with your details about what you have done so far with NATS and they can tell you if you can apply and what you would have to do.

Thanks. I have my final stage of NATS process in June so I'll await the outcome of that before I contact them.

If you think you might want to go to Eurocontrol instead of NATS (the money and pension is much better at MUAC, the work environment not), then you should contact them now. If Eurocontrol is simply your backup plan if you fail at NATS then you would most likely be wasting your time I'm afraid (unless your FEAST scores are exceptional).

I think the Feast lasts a couple years. So if you have done it then you don't have to take it again at Eurocontrol. You'll just tell them, they'll contact NATS and eventually you'll be invited for the group phase and eventually the interview. When I was doing the tests some guys had done it that way so you shouldn't have any problem with that. But as said, if it's just your backup plan then be careful cause the invitation is not 100% sure

Hi everyone!

I just passed to the second phase of Eurocontrol and got informed that there will be a test called Multipass . I have no idea what this is , and there is nothing on the web . The only test which sounds like it is Multicontrol but i don't believe its the same one.

Does anyone have any information regarding Multi Pass ?

Thanks a lot!
