Bristol Ground School


I just wanted to get the gist, if anyone knows, of the accuracy of BGS when it comes to the UK CAA question bank. How likely is it that the questions coming up in the actual exam are taken from the questions provided by BGS, and does anyone have an idea of roughly how many new questions the CAA likes to chuck in?

I used BGS for my exams, and they were fairly accurate - for most exams I had a few new questions, as they get released, but the questionbank seems to catch up quickly. I'd thoroughly recommend BGS.

I am using Bristol, and in my experience it's very close to the exams. There always be new questions on the exams, but I think regarding UK CAA Bristol it's the closest.

If you put sequential order and hold down the right arrow key until you hit the last question and work your way backwards they will be the most recent questions added to the subjerct, a lot of people recommend to learn the last 200 as they are the most important

I go thru the BGS a couple of times till I start getting 90% or so and then I go thru Aviation Exam once, maybe two times, try to focus a bit more on the flagged questions, but I would say that if I would do only BGS, my results would be probably the same or maybe 2-3% worse tops... As somebody said, the last 200 questions are quite helpful, you can find them on the atpforum. Good luck.

Thanks for the info guys. Is it wise to primarily use the question bank for study, or a combination of the given material and the question bank?

Do whatever works for you, One thing that is for sure is the banks must be known relatively well to pass the exams as the questions are not asked in an easy way to understand and a lot of tricks involved to get you to pick the wrong answer

My study is personally 95% of the bank and anything i'm not sure of I will read up on it
