Unfortunately now the system doesn't let me to re apply, telling that I've already did, and under the applications they put that mine was withdraw.
Try using a different email address. I'm in process of doing the same thing with EK because I too messed up the original app and got the not under consideration response.

Another email address = creating a different account. And there is already an account with all my information. I don't think that they will like people opening several accounts.

I always find myself doing algebraic equations during my flying...

Surely, those who can manage their capacity and work load, mitigate the risks they identify and plan accordingly are far better skills to look for in potential flight crews? What do I know.

Worth a read for those who don't "get" aptitude tests

Third paragraph particularly...

"Aptitude tests are designed to measure your work-related cognitive capacity. The concept behind these tests is that each test question has only one correct answer, and everyone can correctly solve all the test questions. The only difference between people is in how quickly they can correctly complete the test (i.e. answer all the test questions). That’s why these tests are always timed. The time is defined in such a way that only 1% to 5% of the population can correctly solve all the test questions within the allowed time frame.

What do aptitude tests measure? These tests measure what psychologists refer to as your fluid and crystallised intelligence. The theory of fluid and crystallised intelligence suggests that people’s intelligence is composed of a number of different abilities that interact and work together to produce overall individual intelligence.

Fluid intelligence is the ability to think and reason abstractly and solve problems. It’s more commonly known as ‘street smarts’ or the ability to ‘quickly think on your feet’ . This ability is considered independent of learning, past experience, and education. Examples of the use of fluid intelligence include coming up with problem-solving strategies, ability to quickly learn new skills, ability to quickly integrate new information, strategic thinking, etc. The aptitude test that measures your fluid intelligence is called abstract reasoning.

The second component of intelligence that the aptitude tests measure is crystallised intelligence. Crystallised intelligence is the ability to learn from past experiences and relevant learning, and to apply this learning to a situation. Employers, obviously, will only be interested in your ability to apply your learnings to work-related situations. Work situations that require crystallised intelligence include comprehending written reports and instructions, ability to produce reports, ability to use numbers as a tool to make effective decisions, etc. This type of intelligence is based upon facts and rooted in experiences, and becomes stronger as we age and accumulate new knowledge and understanding. There are many aptitude tests that measure different aspects of crystallised intelligence. The most common are verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning, spatial reasoning and mechanical reasoning"

So who does the aptitude test then? I thought that all new entry pilots will have to do this before they are being given a date of join. Maybe this test is not for all pilots but they choose who will do it and who will not ? Noone of swimmers has got invitation about this test yet?

Questions about 787 fleet

Anyone know the likely 787 delivery (and re-delivery) rate at QR now that the 787 will be certified in the next month or two? QR had 3-4 787s in operation before the grounding - how many have been built in the interim that should be put into service once the final fixes have been made?

How many in operation total before year's end assuming a fix can be made quickly on the grounded and newly-built aircraft? Obviously hiring should move forward as more pilots are trained and sent out to the new aircraft, etc.
