Just got the rejection email. Quite pissed....mainly due to the fact that the computer crashed during some tests and I was told there is no need to re-do....hmm...

Sorry to hear that. Was it stage 2 that you received a rejection for? Keep your head up and you'll get it next time (hopefully the PC's won't be crashing!)

Hmmm...hard luck dude
I am still waiting for some response both OAA and CTC. I did the same stage 2 with you on Fri 13th. And I do remember there was one guy who had the computers crashing...

Just got the email from OAA about the rejection. However they did mention in the email that I can take a retake some elements of the COMPASS as the results were competitive to join the APPFO selection.

Does anyone know whether this email is a generic one or not? Basically I don't want to waste money into retake the tests and know that it's already a lost cause haha

Generic I believe. Either your results as they stand are good enough for APPFO or not. They already know that and re-doing the tests is unlikely to dramatically alter the outcome. But it is a good money maker. As you age increases your scores will increase up to the age of aprox 30, plateau then start to fall off. All of this is known to OAA, but few aspiring Pilots realise this.
Simply ask them are the scores that they have on record good enough or not. Should you wish to see them and they withhold the info submit a 'Subject Access Request'.

Same for me, attended on the 13th. Last time I was told my scores were eligible to continue onto one of their programs unsponsored. This time I "may have to resit some elements"

I hope so Clarkson but I haven't heard a thing yet, I might give them a call tomorrow to check they haven't emailed me and I haven't received it as this happened during the application process. I'm not sure if any one has received a rejection from stage 3 yet, normally I would say the longer the wait the better but if no-one has had a rejection from stage 3 yet then I don't think the length of time is a good sign. Good luck all still waiting!!! Tense times!

Quick question. For those unsuccessful at the OAA stage, was any feedback offered? After all you did pay for it.


CAE Oxford Aviation Academy Oxford’s Skills Assessment process is designed to identify those individuals most likely to succeed in our APP First Officer Course and then into a professional flying career. Selected candidates will spend the day in our Airline Careers and Assessment Centre at Oxford Airport undergoing a series of tests using specifically developed and validated methodologies and tools. Candidates will also be free to speak to instructors, students, and staff as well as tour the training facilities.


The day will consist of the following tests:

Pilot Aptitude:

Computer based testing
Technical test
Personality profiling
People skills, character, commitment and flexibility:

Teamwork exercises
Competency based interviews
Comprehensive debrief and feedback
Offer of a place to successful candidates
So if you paid for it, I would demand you get what you paid for. Especially if they gave the check to make you pay to re do the same Assesment for APP FO.
Perhaps this is a small insight into how OAA is run these days under the CAE umbrella?

No mate they wont give you any feedback if you have did COMPASS tests for a mentored programme. They only do it for their own integrated courses, I know it's a shame afterall.

Hence the importance of submitting a 'Subject Access Request'. It is simply not fair to charge for feedback and fail to provide what has been paid for. Clearly things have been stripped to the bone in Oxford.

Find out how to request your personal information | ICO

Should you have progressed to the final EZY stage, they are required to hold onto your records for a period of 12 months.

UK ATOs have been exploiting ignorance of the UK Data Protection Act for some time now, hoping new potential cadets will not want to 'rock the boat'. Charging for Assessment, failing to provide a listed service and then re charging are frankly exploitation schemes.

What time limit was set to reapply for APP FO? Are you required to wait a certain period of time?

I think the majority of people were given a phone call to be told they were successful, which was a nice touch!

For those that got rejected, I feel for you. Rejection is part of life though, how you respond to it is something you can bring up in future selections. Being rejected and bouncing back shows determination to be a pilot. The two guys I met at Gatwick for my medical had been rejected twice for the FPP, but had succeeded on their final attempt.

For those that failed on the compass tests, I found sharpening up on Maths and physics helped me for those sections. Studying for the ppl exams also helps as you learn aviation physics, which is what the test is based on.

For those that failed on the interview. In my view the most important part of the interview is showing you have the motivation to train to be a pilot and the motivation to work for the company. Demonstrating both of these with real examples will help. Ie getting to solo in a piston plane or glider shows this isn't a flash in the pan. Have rock solid competency answers for teamwork, leadership, communication and motivation helps too..

In my experience the group exercises can be a lottery, but bringing people into the conversation (though not as blatantly as calling them out by name!) , listening, summarising and making sure the objective is achieved are all important.

Good luck, the preparation for your next selection starts today!

Interesting, I see CTC have re-opened for applications! Curious - can only assume Easyjet need more?

More probable that they didn't find 36 valid candidates for the EZY MPL in the first batch of selection. So reopening to fill all the available spaces.


About OAA feedback to unsuccessful candidates, actually i'm sure i read somewhere in the EZY MPL site that was not possible for them to give extensive feedbacks to every single candidate. Even if this sounds bad i'm sure this is more connected to the amount of applications received and candidates assessed.

If they have stated that they will not provide feedback, then so be it. Still sad to see that they will not commit resources to provide feedback. A sad change from the past. That said it appears all the major ATOs are the same these days.

None the less for those who do want to obtain information of the assessments made of them (interview write up/scoring etc) a mechanism does exist.

Still I am interested what time interval was specified by both ATOs (or perhaps it is just CAEOAA) before attending another selection, either for an airline scheme or in general.

Call it curiosity, but I am interested too see if previous limits on re applications still exist these days.

Constructive Criticism

Just a quick plea for help. Anybody who was on the red team at the CTC easyJet MPL selection on 04/07/2014, please would you be kind enough to PM me with any potential notes you might be able to provide on how I approached my group tasks? Still recovering from the blow of not gaining the chance to interview, disappointed does not cover it!

Best of luck to all of you still in the process.
