Hi everyone!

I just received an e-mail about 'Assessment 2' (at L3) which is the non-technical day and was hoping someone would be able to shed some light on the following:

-We are told to complete a cut-e test prior to attending Assessment 2. What does this entail?

-Does anyone have any information on the group exercises/interview in terms of what the format is for the group exercises plus any tips and what kind of questions they ask in the interview.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Hi gbigglesq, I received the same email a couple of weeks ago and was also unsure of what the cut-e test was as there had been no mention of it before. I called L3 and they told me it was just a personality test that will be used to help L3/EZY with the interview stages. I would assume they probably use it to build some understanding of the candidate before meeting actually meeting them. So probs isn't something to worry about or prepare for... just answer honestly and be yourself I guess!

The cut-e tests are basically personality tests. They're multiple choice questions, just answer them honestly and you'll be fine, don't try and make yourself out to be someone which you are not ive been told they are structured to catch people out if they do this.
But honestly they are nothing to worry about.
You'll get sent them normally a week or two before you're assessment.

Thanks so much for the information guys! That really puts my mind at rest - I was just hoping they weren't more aptitude tests!

If you are only just going down for your assessment you haven't been accepted onto route 1. You do the 2 assessment days, and then if you pass them both you will be allocated a route based on your performance throughout the process. You won't know until that point if you have route 1, 3 or just whitetail in the worst case.

So did you hear back today? Did they tell you by email or phone?

Hi all! Is anyone else still waiting for L3 to put up dates for the Day 2 non-technical assessment? If so, how long have you been waiting for and do you know how often they upload new dates? Thanks very much for any information.

I waited over 10 weeks for my response. After receiving the initial email stating that I was awaiting my route allocation, I thought it was a dead cert I was on one of the 3 EZY courses. I've only made it onto the whitetail.

I'd say if you hear back quickly you scored highly. If you wait months it's because they roll your assessment score over to compete against the next months applicants.

Gutted.

Honestly mate, well done for getting offered whitetail. Remember, some don't even get passed the initial application, if you're not happy though, you could ask L3 for some feedback, on what areas let you down, and find out about re-applying. the majority of whitetail seem to go to easyJet anyway, through the hold pool, so you still stand a good chance of being employed by them, if not another airline, perhaps one that even pays for your Type rating... Best of luck with everything anyway - it sure is a tough process to go through, especially when having to wait!

Thanks for the kind words mate. Yeah, just it would have been a lot easier re-mortgaging a family members house knowing that an EZY job was at the end. So hard for those from low-income families to become a pilot

No worries dude! Have you checked out the BA Cadet programme with L3/CTC? Same academic requirements, and the job at the end... works in the same way as EZY, in the sense that you could be on an MPL or ATPL route...

Have a long hard think about whitetail before going for it. Less cadets are leaving L3 and going straight to EZY as a result of the generation easyjet programme fulfilling most demands. Hold pools are filling up with people like my friends who have just done their AQC being told of a wait of up to a year for interviews unless you find your own work, throw in the sudden influx of ex monarch pilots and you get a very volatile picture. Who knows where you may find the industry in two years time, that's the leap into the dark that is whitetail.

As EC 2017 said, consider BA Cadet Programme, if you can afford it (its hardly different to EZY) then you're already past the first hurdle.

And flight training doesn't have to be this expensive for low income families, you are simply choosing the most expensive route there is, don't give up just because L3 want to charge the earth for the same blue book everyone gets.

Best of luck

Yeah I’ve seen it. Just called for feedback incase I were to try for other tagged schemes but they won’t give me any because I’ve been “successful” by achieving whitetail

Has anyone who’s started on a course recently had any indication of potential base they could expect/where they currently require?

I think that sums up their attitude fairly succinctly. Maybe you should remind then you shelled out just under 300 quid for the privilege.
