I understand not wanting to reveal the exact content of the tests, I would be the same, but could anyone just tell us if its a pen and paper job or on a computer or both?

Please Bigga, I insist. And sorry that i say it over and over again. I just wouldn't like to see anyone letting out that sort of information. When we came in that room we had no idea how the exames would be, and if someone let you guys know even the slightest detail, it wouldn't be fair to the rest.

Please mates,

Nobody give out detailed info as to be fair to all of us. I haven't even been to an assesment yet !

Michael 443, I have 2 questions,

How many hours was the overall assesment? and where exactly was it located? Was it in an Etihad Office or At the Airport or wah?

What were most people in London wearing?

I'm not sure whether to just go smart-casual or whether to wear a full suit

I wasn't thinking of jeans and t-shirt anyway, just short-sleeved shirt and tie but no suit jacket.

I'll wear a full suit just to be on the safe side!

Guys, know that after the assessments tomorrow in London, there are still some assessments to take place in other cities in the future. So, the rule of not letting out any information on the tests should still be respected. Not only for keeping your chances high, but also to keep mine.

A little confused

I've been watching this thread for the last few months and I appreciate all of the info I've gleaned from it and I have applied to this cadet scheme myself. However, I'm a little confused about all of this talk of "don't reveal any of the test details". I understand that it seems unfair to divulge information about assessments to those who haven't been assessed because its like ruining your own chances by giving away information and giving others a leg up that you didn't have coming in to the assessment. And I also saw someone's post that referred to Etihad staff monitoring these forums as well. But isn't that the reason why there is a forum like this one? For the most part, we're all anonymous outside of those who joined the Facebook group. Not to say that I want someone to tell me, "the answer to number 32 is B", but we're all here to share information and learn from other, whether they're rumors or not. At the end of the day, I think it doesn't matter who knew what or how someone told them the tests will proceed because you can receive all the inside tips and tricks but if you don't have what they're looking for, as far as aptitude, attitude, etc., you just won't get chosen especially since they're only choosing 12 in this round. And it won't be the end of the world if you don't get chosen this time...its been mentioned that this might not be the only selection and there are plenty of, albeit dwindling, opportunities in the world. Just keep ya head up and stay positive. And I'll be happy to share whatever I can after the assessment.

well said stonyisland!!! People are treating it like its some top secret government information, and Aeromar is just tripping out…hehehe… you need to take it easy mate and like you said yourself... just relaaax…

and as for sharing information aeromar you did not have a problem when the guy from middle east stated how the assessment was. and now you have a problem telling someone how many people came to the test, and if its on computer or not?? Okay then? get real man

I advise moderators close down this thread, if people are going to start sharing answers;

I have to say it's been interesting following this thread over the last couple of days. It rather resembles a pack of seagulls scrapping over a discarded chip. I think you'll find the assessors are sufficiently intelligent to be able to decide whether a candidate is suitable or not without basing it purely on some arbitrary examination.

I'm afraid that by getting so excited about beating each other into silence, you're totally missing the bigger picture.

If nothing else, consider this is in terms of CRM:

P1 - "Can you give me the SAM VOR frequency please?"
P2 - "No, I'm not telling you, it's a secret you might be after my job."

Just remember that if you really believe that Etihad are reading this forum, perhaps you should spend more time thinking about how you appear from what you write. This includes your attention to detail, such as spelling and grammar, and your attitudes towards others.

That's my advice to you all, anyway.

LOL!! Nice try
Everything you need to know has already been said on this topic. Work on your basics maths skills, pratice some logic test, chill out and everything should be fine!
What else do you want to know? The exact purpose of the questions?! We might be nice people, we're not stupid!
