The only people who know the criteria are the people who put it all together. Anyone here really is just guessing.

Failed on the Maths...it was never my strong suit but rejection at such an early stage is such a huge kick in testicles. Oh well back to pay as you go modular

People who have passed the tests, I would thought they start sending some online digital interviews for us to do.

I doubt it. They will review applications first. They need to check CV, answer to the question, GCSE certificates. No point in them wasting time watching interviews if you donít meet the criteria.

Itís just a mechanism to get rid of thousands of applicants, a lottery. Go and get your licence, and apply for their competitor virgin Atlantic like i will 🤭 Chin up, carry on. youíll be fine. If at first you donít succeed, try and try again 👍
Thanks mate really nice advice. Look forward to seeing you in the sky! Best of luck

Tests

Hey everyone, I applied on the 19th in the evening. I havenít yet received any tests or feedback. I am an international citizen but have enquired beforehand about eligibility and received a response that I am welcome to apply as they encourage diversities. I have good GCSE marks and a PPL as well.
Anyone kindly suggest prep material for tests please? THANKS

So I have noticed one of the requirements is 12 months left valid on your passport (at the time of assessment?) I have ~11 months, with the original intention of renewing it in January. Happy to apply for a renewal now if it means meeting this requirement, however unsure when this "Time of assessment" is?

Yh maths is multiple choice. Definetly will need a calculator and get used to using it efficiently. Pages loaded slow so ran out of time. Even the stupid next button took time to load on some questions. Emailed them about it see what happens. Definitely need to revise the speed equation and fuel calculations like gallons if you're going to do the maths test. If you found it hard don't feel bad about it. It's the time that puts pressure more than anything. Plus you have to factor in reading time as well as you don't want to misread the question.

Iíve said before and will say again. Telling people the tests gives them an unfair advantage and like it or not everyone here is competing for a few places. Itís fairly basic GCSE level stuff so just do the tests, you shouldnít really need to revise for them.

You need to upload the GCSE certificates so I would try and track them down quickly.
