Why are they making you take stage 2 again? I thought the results from that were good for 12 months?

On the one hand I know what to expect on the other they’re taking the mick when I get through.

EDIT Bit disheartening when you also receive emails like this
Can’t post a link but pilot career news have a story about CAE getting a contract for 1000 easyJet pilots.
Hey, this just happened to me too despite being told the contrary a few weeks ago. It’s a bit of a pain, as I have to wait 4 months until I can re-take stage 2.

good luck next time!

The stage 2 I sat was for the ATPL which was fine (passed). But the MPL for easyJet has higher standards, so passing for ATPL does not mean you are eligible for the MPL.

I got an offer of a Stage 3 interview with easyJet in June and I've been waiting for them to reopen the Stage 3 since. Looking through the bumpf there's no mention of MPL or otherwise. Might ring them on tuesday and see if there's been a mistake somewhere, if not I'll book another Stage 2 as i'm eligable at the beginning of Jan and I'm off on one of the days it runs.

I dunno. Maybe they've changed the test or score requirements. Maybe I just scraped through first time?

If you applied in June your stage 2 would have been benchmarked to ATPL standards - as eJ was running at ATPL course too at that time. However, now there is only an MPL so they are only accepting higher-scoring applicants.

I guess the good news is, if you pass the MPL selection you’ll save about 45k compared to the ATPL route. Good Luck!

How do they mark the ADAPT test because I did it a few days ago and I think I did really well in all the others accept the FAST. It was just soo confusing and too many things to look for.

apparently they look for improvement on the second attempt it demonstrates the ability to learn and improve.

I found out I failed my stage 2 during the week. Funnily enough, my biggest worry was the FAST test just like you, but somehow I passed that haha! It was the ball game that really catched me out.

Just an FYI to you and everyone else in the forum, CAE have increased the “cool down” period for re-sits to 6 months, no longer 3 months. I think this down to controlling the flow of applicants, as they’re getting quite busy.

I won’t be continuing to pursue CAE, and I’ve heard there’s delays on the horizon due to capacity; I'll be pursuing another avenue for pilot training. Good luck to all those applying for the assessments.

Yeah I was gutted, but I believe everything happens for a reason and not to dwell on these setbacks. I also failed on the physics section. I felt confident on the physics however, and I’d be really surprised if I didn’t get at least 15 out of the 20 questions correct. I do wonder what the actual pass marks are for the different sections of the assessment... and I wonder if they’ve increased the pass marks as well as the cool down period...

I’m going to pursue FTA down in Shoreham. Really like the way they do things, and aren’t a massive multi-million company who treat cadets like a name on a system. And ultimately... you end up with the exact same qualifications at a cheaper cost.

Have you done your stage 2 yet?

Not yet I'm due in a couple weeks, yes everything does happen for a reason, maybe they have pushed the boundaries up if they have plenty of candidates, was you taking the easyjet mpl path or just cae standard integrated atpl route ? Apparently the easyjet mpl level2 is harder with higher boundaries, did you have any of the prep software like cae the cbd bundle or the latestpilotjobs.com software?

I also have heard good things about shoreham ... oxford is most convenient for me due to distance from home, and I felt more reassured by its airline links...but if I happen to fail and there is a 6 month wait that could really put a spanner in the works.

Out of interest what kind of physics questions did you get? Damn I’m getting nervous about this now

I passed the Step 2 last month, the physics was really easy. Distance, speed, acceleration mostly

What part of the FASthu think u did bad on. The part where you have to answer questions while monitoring the cockpit or answering questions about the cockpit later.

there were some really easy fill in the blank questions. Distance, speed, time and some questions like: how much fuel did the plane use while flying for 3 hrs with the fuel consumption of xxx. I finished the whole section 12 mins before the end time even though im kinda slow in answering because i always double check my answers. Maths took a little longer for me. Other than that, the memory part and the orientations were very basic. Just make sure u observe the pictures properly before answering because I was too confident and realised I got a question wrong 1 sec after i selected the answer. And once u select an answer, you cant change.
