I too had questioned this, so had to do some further reading. The term itself can be a little ambiguous as it can be used for both the end of a day and the start. In this situation the deadline could either be the instant we start entering the 20th or the moment it ends.

From a little further research it would seam as it's technically the start of a period but is widely used as an end. This is why many schedules use specific times such as 23:59 or 00:01; avoiding possible confusion.

Seeing what's at stake. I'd personally take the safer interpretation and ensure its done by 23:59hrs Sat 19th May.

Very interesting assessment overall, if nothing else it was a good experience. Really do hope I get called to next stage...

I found the interview and verbal reasoning the hardest out of the lot.

The personality questionaires are fairly standard things, would actually be interested to see the output.

Hey,

One quick question, anyone knows if a PPL is considered as a "completed aviation-related apprenticeship" ?

Thanks !

Hello everybody,

I've just got back from a trip and going to do this. I would like to know if are we allowed to use calculator in any assestments or no?

Thanks everybody, best of luck!

Don't suppose I could be so rude to see what sort of questions come up in the interview? Just very nervous about it, thanks

I would certainly agree to do it today!. I am glad my issue with being locked out of one of the tests resolved itself though as my emails to cut-e went unanswered. I even emailed AL too but they just directed me back to cut-e email address. If anyone has technical problems I wouldn’t hold out much hope of support. Either way I am done now although not had any email to confirm. Jope
it goes well for everyone else.

Finished my section 2 items yesterday, but went back to check and it still lets me log in, so if you still haven't finished it, you have time.

Hey guys, I feel rude asking but would someone be able to shine some light on what kind of questions they ask in the interview? Have been studying the cut e tests throughout the past few days but have no idea about the interview... tia

Good luck to all who have applied!
I just have the video interview left to do, which I'll do after work today. Just wondering, do you get only one attempt at each question or is there a limited amount of retakes?

All completed, found the interview questions fairly basic and general.

Online tests much and such

Best of luck to all

Do you know, from previous years experience, how long it may take to receive the feedback from these first online assessment?
Thank you!

Hi,

I have been locked out of the verbal reasoning test because my PC decided to restart frustratingly. I can no longer get back into it - does anyone know how to get around this?

Just completed - video interview I found tough and quite awkward, would be much easier face to face I feel. Good luck to everyone else

No, was wondering the same, all assessments are marked as completed but no additional confirmation email

MAT1991 I had the same sort of issue with the verbal reasoning and it showed as blocked. I emailed them explaining what happened and they unblocked it but it did take a few hours. Also the email saying they had done this went into junk so worth checking in there if nothing shows in your inbox. Good luck!

Does anyone have an idea on the timeline for when invites/rejections would be sent out once the current stage deadline has passed?

Hello everyone.
I just completed both of the assessments but I have a doubt. I wanted to check if my first assessment had been completed properly and I re-entered it. I get nothing saying that I already done it, it just gives me the page to start it over again. (with serial number and TAN pre-filled) Altough when i put the TAN code they gave it says the link is not usable anymore. Does that happen to you too? should i take it again? Thanks!

Dont mean to appear rude but you can probably understand why people might not want to give too much away. The questions are fairly normal interview questions that you shouldn’t have too much difficulty answering. It was certainly different answering questions on my own just stating back at the screen though.
