Hey guys, just wanted to weigh in real quick as I went through the process last year. Assuming the format is still the same, and I see no reason for it not to be, it would be good to practice the Cut-e assessment system. Latestpilotjobs has a good module for this, if a bit pricey for some plans. That being said, if it saves you the cost of flight school or helps grant you job security, I would definitely say it's worth it.

I would expect the assessment emails to be sent out no later than Friday, after which you'll have about 3 days to get everything, including video interviews, submitted. After that there's a bit of waiting to find out if you've progressed or not.

Best of luck to everyone applying!

Cut-e seems to be the "type" of assessment. Can anyone recommend a good online site for revision?

TXTom;

Thanks for the info. Looking at latestpilotjobs and it seems there is atleast 15 different modules. I'm guessing it's only a couple of these modules, any ideas which ones?

I've just successfully finished my cut-e for another application and can recommend pilotest . com
It's free and they are extremely similar if not harder than the actual cut-e tests. Auto Google translate is enough. Good luck

(Can't post full links but check the tab on the far right and choose the cut-e modules you want)

From what I recall, there were 7 or 8 modules. Looking at the list on latestpilotjobs, I believe the closest ones are applied numeracy, verbal reasoning, physics, spatial orientation (super fun), multitasking (also fun), reaction speed, the 'missile' test, and monitoring.

This is, of course, my memory from a year ago so it's a little fuzzy, but those stand out. Sadly, monitoring, one of the hardest ones in my opinion, is only available in the most expensive package, because of course it is.

Thanks for the info everyone. On pilotest.com, which section is relevant? The PILAPT section?

I also noticed there are some free tests on the cut-e website itself. Might be of some use:

Regarding the video interview on the online tests. Are they technical or HR based? I donít want to know any precise questions just which to prepare first.

If you look at the 'a few other tests...' section, all the cut-e style tests are in there. Including monitoring (it's called moving dots)

They're not usually technical questions. More behavioral questions, the generic type of questions that companies will ask during interviews.

Think if you click "other tests" there are some cut-e in there.

Applied Maths? I thought this test would just have Basic Maths in it?

Do I have to go back over A Level Maths then? What topics?

I believe the cut-e applied Numeracy test challenges ones abilities in percentage calculations, distance and area, the rule of 3 and translation of units.
