Hey everyone! I did my medical on Monday and thought I'd share what I did for anyone doing theirs soon since the assessments all seem to differ. I had to do a sight and hearing test, urine test, 10 regular squats, 5 squats on one leg, 15 knee push ups, some reach and general flexibility tests, height measured again (I measured 161cm on AD and 168cm in the medical? My true height is 167 lol) 3 min step test, lifting a 32kg weight from floor to waist twice, lifting a 20kg weight above my head twice (I struggled with this!), and one side plank for around 20 seconds.

Unfortunately I failed my hearing test since the earphones didn't sit in my ear properly (I have smaller ears) so I could hear music from the gym still and therefore couldn't hear the beeps properly. My result said I suffer severe hearing loss in my right ear and moderate loss in my left, which shocked me as I'm in my early 20's, I don't have any previous auditory issues, and currently am a flight attendant! The doctor didn't allow me to resit it so I called someone from TA straight after to see what I could do and they said they'd get back to me. While I'm waiting for my fate if anyone here has had a miracle and was able to re-do something in the medical or got through even with a fail please reassure me and let me know because I feel a rejection email is coming my way now
Very strong possibility hearing would be a reason for rejection, that's why I suggest that you make an appointment with an audiologist for an expert second opinion and send the results to TA if positive.

Hi Paradise,
They were just two examples of the questions asked. You can search for 'Behavioural Interview Questions' to get more examples and how to answer them.
The company dress and grooming standards states that only one earring in each lobe of either gold, silver, or pearl are allowed...Assessment Day is all about making an impression - Only wear one set is my advice.

Hi Watto22,
best of luck for your second attempt.
Itís my 2nd times as well. I applied on the 4th Oct and done the online questionnaire already, but itís weird I havenít received the invitation

Thank you for pointing that out. I didnít think there would be trollers on this forum but I now know better. Obviously they had nothing better to do.

Maybe it depends on how lenient the person on the phone is so good luck if you ask!
thats so reassuring! Thank you for your information i really appreciate it!! I asked to push it back till March or April but they hung up the phone quickly and did not relay the information back to me for clarity, so now Iím not sure if they noted it down on my file 😰 Is it worth calling the number again? But also donít want to sound pushyÖ

Have you actually been given a GS date or are you anticipating so you can still go on your holiday?

Hey Ham, Fellow Melbourne base candidate here, just thought I'd say hi and welcome to the forum

I'm almost certain every one of us is still on hold but what I have heard is that the A380 isn't coming back to Melb at this stage, so that's going to reduce the numbers needed and that direct flights to HK, Tokyo and DFW (these are the destinations from memory) have been pushed out to start up later hence our hold is ongoing, in other words Melbourne is not hiring at the moment. But as we all know it can change in an instant. Personally I've set my expectations to well into '23.

So am just hanging in there and waiting for that call, just like everyone else. And well done SYD base candidates, hope you enjoy training and thrive in your new role!

Mine one was like a week. They will definitely send the contract to you as you will need to submit something else like US visa before you can actually start the ground school.

Hey lovetravel! I saw your message in my inbox but it's not allowing me to reply as it says your inbox is full. Can you inbox me your username for Instagram and we can connect on there. So excited to have someone in the group doing the same ground school as me!

Hi Mel2022qf, thank you so much for the reply and valuable information. Fingers crossed for everyone still waiting and some exciting news for us in 2023.
I did my AD back in March, so itís been a bit of a wait but hopeful for 2023.

Edit: I have just received an email asking to complete further information for possible GS in Jan 2023 yikes 🤗
