MENTAL ARITHMETIC is Mental! no paper no pen! (like for ALL the tests) you have on the desk, the monitor (touch screen) and a joystick! On your side, you will have the headphones (to use ONLY when they'll tell you).
The only test with paper (2 and you can request more if you need) and pencil (they will give you) is Mathematics (RAG)and you will have this test after the lunch break (in my case).

The day has been like this:

ATPL questions
SKT
VLR

10 mins

ROT
RMS
Psyco Question

10 min

VMC
CRM
KRN

Lunch (1h)

RAG
ENS
OWT
MIC

Finish at 16:15

Good luck guys!

Thanks million for the info Fieldins. Did you go for the SENIOR FAST TRACK POSITION ASSESMENT or for THE FO POSISTION?
I've heard they are not the same aren't they?
What about ATPL question? Any info about that?
Thanks for your help and cooperation.

@Fieldins
I'm starting to wonder if your test is the same that I've got invited to. The CBT link I have has no VLR and RAG in them, even though I know they exist.

Could it be possible that they have two different tests? I'm thinking maybe one for Germans and one for everyone else?

@Inverted21
Unfortunately not! My test is before yours already.

@aves88, VLR or WFG is the SPATIAL ORIENTATION (arrows)and RAG are the Maths exercise (X has 3 beers and drink 1, how many beers has x?) . I made it in HAM in English, I don't know if they change it or change the CBT. You can find this exercises in the SKytest software!

@Fieldins
I've done both of them before at DLR, been there too many times for my own good . Just surprises me that both VLR and RAG are included, as the DLR GU doesn't have them. Also surprised that both of the tests aren't listed in the provided preperation folder, even though I know there are official CBT's for both of them. I can live with it though I guess, if that means no PPT...

@wings_atpl
Great review, thanks! Sorry to hear though that you didn't make it.

Thanks for the info @Wings_atpl. Did you hear it right away?

@Fieldings, Where are you now in the selection process? and did you make 7-10 in the RMS? For now I only reach 4-7 (25% in the CBT)

Does anybody know where the SIM is and if it's "do-able"?
Does anybody know if the FU is also in English? DLR gives no answer about that.

I'm trying to prepare the best I can, but I'm getting more nervous the more I practice... Tough feeling

Thanks! I hope I'm on the right path, my other scores are ok. I still have a month or so (what am I saying, the correct DLR answer is √841 days )

@Fieldings, already a date?

Hello folks!
So I got invited to do the basic testing and im sitting with the tests at home right now.
Are the math for real? Are you supposed to calculate the sqaure root of 1xxx, or 7/8*1384 in your head without a paper and penn? Thats crazy? Are they looking for Rainmen or pilots?
Anyone know what % of the average score you need in order to pass the basic testing?

@SwedishFly
Mental Arithmetic is one of those tests where you need some luck to get a good question pool. I've done it twice at DLR and twice received quite some tricky questions, while other people had super easy ones (talking about fairness of giving everyone the same chance...).
Either way, even with a bad pool you can still solve a lot of questions by knowing square numbers up to 30 and cubic numbers up to 10. It's said that 6 correct answers are enough to pass, which is very doable. Just don't set that as your target, practice a lot, learn some math tricks, and just try to get the best out of it.

if you applied as ready entry it is the GU.
Anyone who got an invitation with less than 500hrs and without type rating?

I will receive a date in the next 2-3 weeks for the DLR. I keep preparing with Skytest and I feel getting ready soon. What do you suggest to prepare else than that?

Did anyone had a technical interview with them and can talk about it?
