@raoul
To qualify for CTC wings cadet you need to have qualifications to enter university. This does NOT mean you need a degree. In Italy I think it is called Licenza di scuola superiore. Correct me if I am wrong. This is what they want you to fill in, including the subjects you chose and the grades you achieved.
Hope this helped.

Does anyone know what the pass mark for the maths test is? (It's out of 15).

@99jolegg.
I'm not sure anyone really knows - i dont think it's something CTC will tell candidates. I know a few people left a couple of questions and still passed. But it's probably quite high. Aim for 15/15 and you'll be fine


For the guys who have stayed at Dibden Manor... I'm staying there tomorrow night for my Phase 4.. just wondered if anyone had any tips for places to get something to eat nearby?

Looking forward to my Ph4.. i'm quite chuffed i've got this far.. just hope I make it through!

Cheers guys for all your help! Lee

Good luck for that phase 4 is loads of fun.
As for the maths test rumour has it you have to get 12... keyword 'rumour'.
The maths questions, as long as you follow all the advice here telling you to learn/refresh yourself on conversions, multiplication, division etc, are straight forward and it's not impossible to finish with 5mins to spare.

I agree... i was really worried about not being able to do the questions in time. Yet i finished with about 5 mins to go... went back over some and corrected a few mistakes.

Ok, thanks for the replies. I'd imagine it's around 12-13 out of 15, that'd make it 80-85% for a pass.

Forgot to say.. something that helped me was to ignore decimal places and also get rid of zeros on the end of large numbers. eg 80000/45000 = 80/45. I know it sounds obvious but it's really useful when you're short of time.

Definantely a 12-13 out of 15 is around the pass mark, but we'll never know I dont think. Just quite intrigued whether people will be given the oppurtunity to resit the math test (like myself and a few others ) with phase 2 & 3 on the same day as off now. Must have just failed the math first time and was pretty confident with the pilapt (no re-sit allowed with the aptitude tests), just appreciated the second oppurtunity at stage 3.

Thumbs up Your Grades,

raoul80,

What you need to do is to put your Italian Grades, under other and they will compare with UK grades. CTC have data base for that. Got same message corrected them and then got message that have beeing accepted for phase 2

Good luck

The situation is that in my high school degree exam I' ve only 3 grades. The first is for both my italian and business economy. The second for my oral exams in very different subjects and finally the third dipends of a medium of votes during the five years of high school..

Thanks to those guys who gave some advice - after having had some feedback from CTC it turns out that the "concentration" test was where I fell down - and only on one of the two times I did it during the day - Don't know whether it is a bummer to have been so close or good as gives me a better chance on my second go but needless to say am more determined to nail it than before.

On that note I know there are a couple of programmes out there they recon that can help you improve by the 1 or 2 points I need but I was wondering if anybody knew which of these tests had something similar to the one I need as I know niether are identical to Pilapt.

Concentraiton is the one with the grid with shifting coulours along the top and shifting shapes down the side and random shapes appearing within the grid - I am not surprised this was less than perfect for me - I rather hated it!

Thanks in advance guys (PS to anyone currently at Bristol Ground School I keep seeing you in my parents Pub in Axbridge with Air Law books! Stay off the Cider it rots your mind!)

Cheers for the advice djfingerscrossed. I guess they cant expect too much of me when i've not really done any instrument flying before. I'm thinking that i'm probably going to sound like a wally too when describing anything. I dont really know all the technical words!

Ah well.. fingers crossed

@ raoul,

You should just call CTC. They are the ones who can help you best.

DJ and co will confirm this but I believe it is VFR flight (mostly looking out of the window) an they aren't expecting you to be able to fly it or CTC wouldn't be needed, they're expecting you to be able to learn and take instructions.

I'm sure if you've got this far you'll be fine, just avoid breaking down under the pressure of a training captain task loading you
