This man called it. Why do people leave it to the last minute?

Question Interview appearing as incomplete

Hi all,

I completed all the assessments on Sunday evening, including the recorded interview, however having logged in today.. it is still showing that I haven't completed the interview?

Is anyone else having this problem? Slightly concerned!

Many thanks in advance.

Can anyone explain to me why the first example is done that way and why the plane isn't placed on block 8? When I completed my test I used the logic shown in the test examples (very similar to the video) even though it didn't quite make sense to me and now I fear I got all of them wrong :/

Thank You!
Hi there ! I think the Gyro gives you the heading of the plane (N, S, E, W) so that you have to choose the direction of the plane. For the RBI, it indicates that you are between south and east, and it is represented as a matrix (with the numbers 1, 2, 3 ...), so you just have to drop the plane on the corresponding case (case n°4 in this exemple because it is between south (case 5) and east (case 3)). I did all the same way, but don't know if it's good or not...

Correct me if i'm wrong ! Good luck to all !

Regarding the Youtube Video, had you put the aircraft in position 8, it would have meant that the non directional beacon was at NW, and not SE as the RBI shows.
Just think it this way: the GYRO shows the aircraft is flying South, so you choose the aircraft pointing down. Then the RBI shows the non directional beacon (the centre) is at SE, which basically means it is behind (South) and on the right (East) of the aircraft. The correct position is therefore position number 4.

Other example: GYRO says North and RBI says North West. You select the aircraft pointing up North, then the RBI saying NW tells you that the non directional beacon is above (North) and on the left (West) of the aircraft. Therefore the correct position is the number 4.

The explanation is certainly not one of the bests and can be confusing but hopefully this helps you.
Very methodological and exactly the same approach I used to answer those questions. Good advice here!

That make so much more sense than their explanation. I think given my rush to finish the tests before my holiday I may have done it completely wrong.

because people reported it on these forums that the system crashed. An extension has been provided to people that were unable to complete tests on Sunday evening.
i was pointing this out to someone that posted their interview questions on here.

Video Interview Assistance

I have managed to complete all of the assessment on time apart from the video interview section which I am experiencing technical issues with. I am able to record my example answers perfectly fine, camera and microphone working, playback working etc. The 'upload' example is also working fine, however when I move on to record my actual interview questions all I get is a blank screen.

I have sent various emails to cut-e over the past two days trying to resolve the issue but to no avail. I have tried everything I can think of. All my cookies and browsing history have been reset, my chrome and flash player are up-to-date and security settings on medium.

I realise this is 'last chance saloon' but any techies or IT whizz on here that can assist would be greatly appreciated - deadline is midnight.

Thanks

Lads and Ladies,

Hope you’re all not stressing too much, you’ve all finished the exams and they’re out of your hands now so nothing to panic over...

just out out of curiosity, is there any of you applying for the Aer Lingus programme who aren’t from Ireland and therefore would be relocating if they got the job?

By curiosity, I have done a small search via LinkedIn to estimate what is the probability of a non-Irish candidate to get a final offer for this programme.
I came up with an estimated value of less than 3%, meaning that almost all the cadets are Irish, or seeing with another perspective, a non-Irish would be hired every two programmes.
I completely understand this trend since Aer Lingus is a flag company, indicating that they prefer to give priority to their nationals.
My final conclusion is that, if you are not Irish, then you must have an incredible CV, much probably with aviation related highlights, and be, let's say, in the top 5 of all applicants.
I hope all my numbers and conclusions are completely wrong!! AHah
Have you ever thought about this? If yes, what is your opinion on the subject?

I have tried both Chrome and Firefox. The only thing I can think of is that there was some issue with my internet connection or some kind of privacy setting which is blocking it.

Hello Mask14, I am really curious to know how did you arrive to that 40% number.
I hope is more representative than my estimation
Thanks
