With regard to the A levels- Why would they let you put in predicted grades for A2s if you can't apply?

Can't hurt to apply surely?

You'd need to show evidence of your achieved grades in about minute 1 of first FTO selection day though!

For people looking to swot up, I found the book 'Get a head for the sky' very helpful for all aspects of my selection days. It covers everything from potential interview questions and the maths you'll use to what to wear and how to prepare yourself for the day.

Ya I'd like to know this too. Booking flights at short notice from ROI is going to be costly!

Good luck Titan Airways and flying god

Just for curiosity, what is your profile? PPL? Degree?

Best regards

Looks like OAA is slightly ahead in telling people re: first round assessment days. Has anyone who applied to CTC heard anything yet?

Also got my invite to Oxford, only dates available are 10th-14th December. The confirmation letter says they are running Stage 1 day 1 throughout December and early January, so I would assume more dates become available.

Thumbs up

Wow, congratulations to those with interviews! Short time to get prepped so fingers crossed for you all. Still waiting for CTC.

For those with dates how soon had you put your application in from the starting date?

Kind regards,

Wow- I must say I am extremely surprised that they are inviting people for interviews already. Has the application window closed now? I got mine in but the BAfuture pilot website is still saying 13th dec closing date.

Seems odd to be giving out interviews when the window is still open?

Technically not interviews, Day 1 at Oxford is just a computer based test.

For those thorugh to the OAA assesment Day 1 - is it 250+ like last year? I wonder if they would do some sort of discount for last years' applicants (rejects!) - or is it possible to 'lose' a pilots' physical apptitude in 13 months?

It is 250, I doubt you would get a discount... They have opened up more dates now for the week after..

I don't have a degree or PPL..

Good luck..

@ flying free.LEVC

Thanks. I'm a 4th year undergrad in electrical and electronic engineering. I started my application on the 19th but didn't complete it till the 26th of November. So by no means was I an early applicant!

Further dates have also appeared for assessment at Oxford. It runs till the 21st of December now. I'm unsure if this will be further extended - but I certainly hope so!
