My deadline is Monday 3pm for the assessments... of course this was the first weekend in over a year where I had plans to have a few drinks. Ropey today and a mountain of anxiety facing these tests... Wish me luck...

Good luck to you all!

For the wing, do you think i need a mouse or can it be done on my laptop?

I know its hard to tell. Did you answer all of them in the numerical? If i can remember correctly i got up to 80 level in the game, what about you?

I do not expect anyone to hear until Monday 28th. My friend got their assignment last night, 3 days to do it means results for AL on Wednesday. I imagine they need a few days to decide then on the candidates (unless it is simply the top 325 or so aptitude test results).

Online assessments

Completed the assessments today.
Just to confirm, did anyone receive an email to acknowledge completion of the tests? Anytime I click the assessments link it just says youíve completed all tasks but wanted to confirm the results definitely got sent over as I was surprised to see no automatic email! Is this the same for everyone else?

Yes it was. There was a screen once I'd done all of them saying they were completed, but neither me or my friend recieved any further emails. I think it seems to be what is supposed to happen (I hope)

Ahh okay! Thank-you.

yes I got to level 80 too, I did answer them all in the numerical but I did super bad on the verbal supposed ppl have different strengths and weaknesses. My strength has kinda always been maths over english and literature. Iím not getting my hopes up personally I donít think Iíve done that great in that I crashed the obstacle thing a few times and my verbal reasoning was terrible and when I say terrible I mean terrible

It's all down to they way they score the tests and what weight each item gets. Hopefully we've all done enought to get a shot at the assessment centre.

Yeah, I was speaking to a guy who completed the 2019 induction and is currently flying with Aer Lingus. I was asking him if I was wasting my time trying lol he just said he scored terribly in some tasks but scored quite well in the others so you are either wired like a pilot and it will work in your favour or you arent wired a particular way and there is nothing you can do about it. Worth a shot at your dream though.

Great bit of encouragement thanks for sharing. I agree, they will hopefully take absolutely everything into account, including the CV, cover letter/personal statement and personal circumstances. For example I shared that I had to have two heart surgeries (one failed) in order to obtain a class 1 and shows my determination to follow the dream, and my experience in aviation dispatching aircraft at current. I hope these things would hopefully show more than just a few aptitude tests would.

Iíve also heard this years intake is encouraging more female applicants so I imagine it could be a 50:50 or 60:40 female to male split which is good to see in the industry, means us guys have to work harder to compete 😉

Yeah I heard this too but I think there will be more lenience shown towards more female applicants. Hypothetically, if only 5 female applicants applied but their aptitude tests were appalling then I doubt they would still get through to the assessments and then ultimately, the course itself. This is a slightly extreme example but hopefully the other non-female cadets wouldnt consider the successful female applicants as being "gifted" the opportunity due to their gender. They will have had to have completed the tests and scored high enough to be accepted in the first place. Let's not forget that

Sorry to hear about your troubles! Hopefully, you are on the mend properly now! (as evidenced by your class 1).

Even after my friends words of reassurance, I would be very, very surprised if my results were in the top x percentile to warrant an invite for assessment. During the multitask exercise, I mis-clicked more often than I thought. Whizzing the mouse over to "no duplicate" but clicking too soon and catching the very edge of the "duplicate" box... I'm a wreck waiting on feedback.
