Firstly, calm down mate. I can see it is very frustrating for you, however, it is a techincall problem that CAN be resolved. Have you messaged the support department? I think there is an email address on the assesment hub and i'm sure they will help you. Have you a friend or family member that could perhaps lend you a laptop with a Web cam built in? Is there a local library perhaps? Or even an Internet cafe (if they are even still a thing??) You cant be the only person that's had this issue, and I'm sure the team will help you to sort it.

With regards to having wanted to complete over the weekend, don't get worked up. I too work long days, and then have children to attend to on an evening. I often only site down to do anything for myself at after already being awake for around 14-15hrs. I appreciate it's tiring and you may not be able to perform at a capacity that you would like to, but, stay focused and remember why you are doing this... It will help you though. That's what I do anyway! It gets me though the difficult times!

complywithme

this is a great explanation and the way they explain it to you makes it even easier...............and yet still somehow i think i've messed it up. Combo of stressful activity and the fact that every house close to me seems to be getting extensive and loud work done to it! Just got applied maths and deduction to do and i'm set for the 'no' email again

My advice to anyone who hasn't started it yet is (a) start it and (b) do a couple of the activities at a time, take a break (even a few hours, maybe do some practice on the next one you plan to attempt) and then go back to do more. I'e done this in previous years when i did all the activities straight after each other and you can feel the pressure build.

Hi everybody! I have just completed my tests and I will do the video part this afternoon after lunch.

I found some elements extremely difficult, but others were easier. Yet, I managed to make some silly mistakes.

Do you guys know how much time will Aer Lingus Recruitment Team need to give us our results?
Have a nice day everyone!

I have just sat at my pc to complete the tests and the mouse is nowhere to be seen. Great.

Looks like I will be doing mine at work tonight!

I was Intending on using a tablet to do my video interview but the program opens up and uses the rear facing camera. Despite my selecting front facing as default in the tablets settings. Now I wasted the example practice question trying to get it to work. Having to borrow a friends laptop this evening to get it finished as im frightened to try again. Because if I try again on the tablet the assessment will start straight away. (Already uses the practice) Cant be running backwards and forwards to answer the questions.

Canít believe there isnít a button on the actual assessment to flip the camera!

Finished everything today on my second sitting due to work and stuff.

Overall, I would say better than expected but I think the video interview will let me down. I don't like it and basically just got my answers in as quickly as possible. It's way more nerve wrecking than an actual interview by miles and don't understand the need for it.

On the other hand, the other assessments were mostly ok with Maths being a mixed bag, multi-tasking went well, reaction speed was easy, verbal reasoning was well...verbal reasoning, and flight through the boxes proved to ok as well. Deductive logical thinking was a bit heavy.
Don't think I've advanced to the interview stage but fingers crossed!

Is anyone else having trouble loading the video interview part?

When I try to do the sample question, the message on screen says "Please allow your browser to use your webcam and microphone if prompted". I allowed access to both but that message is all I'm getting on screen.

My webcam and mic are both working otherwise. I'm using Chrome if that matters. Anyone able to give some advice please?

Just finished my interview questions. They arenít that bad guys- donít panic about it. I have thought of a couple of things that I forgot to mention but overall I hope i did ok. You will always look back with hindsight and think, Ďoh I should have said that!í

Itís the mild panic when the 40 second timer is counting down!

And having to to listen to the sound of your own voice 😮

7 pages already and no-one has even been invited to the main assessments yet, let alone attended. If ever there was an argument for fully funded programmes, it's this.

Self funded BACF down the page is 12 posts in total and that's pretty much covers their entire selection process.

Hi BBB, yes i'm the same unfortunately.
I have tried a couple of times and have had the same - or else the screen just freezes when i hit start.

I emailed their support team and they said they had rectified it but have just logged in and its still the same.

Google Chrome is up to date, and camera, mic is all ok but no luck..

Bit of a worry now..

Good luck to everyone with technical problems, I see a lot of people are getting nervous about their circumstances for doing the test, try to relax - there always is a way. Endurance is part of the job, so see it as a nerve testing practice
I also intended on doing it in an Internet cafe but couldnít find one and thought about sitting on a public market square at night using a barís WiFi, ended up doing it with little mobile data on the ground (cause I didnít have a table) using a laptop that is so old and cracked that I didnít know if it would make it through opening it up even and for the Video Interview i used my phone lying on a fragile construction I build on my bed because I couldnít do it in a better set up and thereís ocean noises in the background probably
I donít think that it had major effects on my performance though so donít worry, everything will work out in the end, thereís always a solution, donít get stuck on minor issues and just do your best

mboqseif no problem

I have maths and monitoring ability left to do! To be honest I've been putting them to one side to finish off tonight but the more prep I do the more apprehensive I am. Do you know if they ask about voltages etc. I've actually never even done those calculations in school so I'm trying to give myself a crash course LOL!!! Also do they ask the area of prisms etc?

I agree but it's funny how everyone here seems to be insanely competitive even by PPRuNe standards

I completed mine on Saturday in one sitting, when everyone was out of the house! I used the QR code to download an app onto my iphone and used that to do the video interview! worked amazingly!

Finished the tests last night in a onner over about 3 hours with a short break. Found them to be much better than previous years, especially the tunnel one.
The video was uncomfortable lol but I think if you can complete that to a reasonable standard then you will be doing better than most, I bet loads of people just gave up on them.

Good luck all.
