It's hard to tell. Last year I got the 'thanks but no thanks' email about a month after the calls started coming in.
And some others got the invite weeks after the first set of calls went out...

Until you get rejected you're still in the game!

Not precisely. Some were called actually quite late. When they even had already given up. Better be optimistic here.

There was also a part in their page that said they will keep the applications for a specified period of time for future purposes. Meaning there is still a chance even for those with the "no thanks email". Even the slightest chance does count you know.

Well, I did well with the RAF CBAT so I suppose that's a good alternative. If I don't hear anything

Rejection for me, 3rd time trying - shame we can't even see the test results, not sure how close I have ever been, bit deflating to not know.

Still nothing. Not sure what to think of that.

For those who received the "thanks but no thanks" email: does the portal still read 'invite to preselection online tests' or something else?

For those waiting (including me!!), previously the airline has kept people in reserve on previous versions. They may not have been in the top ten for example but may have been number eleven and were called if one of the top ten couldn’t make it to the interviews or dropped out so don’t worry too much yet. Good luck though ��

Do you think that they're calling people on specific days related to the day people will be assessed? If they sent out a mass rejection email then the others would automatically know they've made it thruough. Because the assessments will take place over a two week period, some would gain an advantage by having more time to prepare.
In my view it is fairer to inform people over a two week period with subsequent announcement days relating to subsequent assessment days.

Just a thought...

Just received the rejection email. No reason as to why. Would be nice to know why. Was it my video? Was it a test? What was it?

I wish they wouldíve emailed us all at once on the same day instead of getting our hopes up and stressing us out!

I was a nervous wreck over the past few days, sitting waiting on a phone call and turning my email alerts off.

really sorry 😐 yea I was so disappointed when I got the mail but Iíd hate if I was left waiting to find out the same news eventually. Itís a shame they donít tell us. However (not to be rocking the boat and I donít have intentions of doing this) under the new GDPR rules Iím pretty sure that you can request any information about you documented by an organisation. So if they have noted something about your application I wonder are you privi to that?

I will try to ask, I wonít push it though. The video was definitely something I felt anxious about, the personality test and the compass (?) test. I couldnít get my head around that one.

Shows how hard it is to get on to this, the fact that we canít even get on to the Assessment Day!

Not sure where to go now regarding Pilot. I donít have £100,000 to pay.

I agree. It would be good if those who got through could tell us how they performed on the tests so we can see what sort of ďboundaryĒ the airline aims for score wise.

I got through and felt I didn't perform very well in the assessment. For the video assessment I skipped a question by accident and my application was deemed void but I had to get Aer Lingus to re-activate my application portal. Struggled with the dots aptitude question but found the test overall very fair. There was no room for trying to trick the personality test as questions were asked in numerous ways. I must note I only answered 25 of the verbal reasoning questions also as I felt I approached it in the wrong way. Hope this helps with your query.

I live in N. Ireland - I asked my optician and they have said I need to have another eye test, at which point they will give me a letter confirming everything is ok re Ishihara. They had never heard of certificates?
