I dont know, I have found some pretty good packs. I remember sitting the NATS Air Traffic Control test and a lot of the practice tests I am doing are very similar to the ones I got with NATS. I imagine many of the assessments and skills required to be an atc controller and pilot crossover. I think practice is good because even when u might not think so, I have definitely picked up some tips and tricks. Obviously, practice is not the real thing but like anything, preparation and practice are important. It will come down to how one can peform under the time pressure aswell. Good luck to everyone tho! I will be sitting mine on Monday i think.

Doubt people would know, unless they know someone personally involved in the recruitment team at BA. 1-2 months is a long time to be worrying, should go and focus on something else otherwise you'll worry yourself to death. (I remember when I applied to the TUI course in 2022, it took almost 4 months for them to respond, I ended up forgetting that I'd even replied to them because I didn't hear anything in so long!)

No. They say which questions you need one for.

I could not agree with this more; I found the numerical reasoning activity to be exceptionally difficult!

Calculator usage

Does anyone know whether a calculator can be used for the Skyborne assessments? I noted in the email it mentioned taking photos for mobile phone detection and im slightly conscious in case it mistakes a calculator for a phone - have others used calculators?

Just did the skyborne tests. I'd say the maths was probably the least difficult part! Very similar to the TUI assesments if anyone did those... or was it Aer Lingus? I forget! Good luck everyone!

Glad I'm not the only one, ran out of time. I have a analytical degree with a high proportion of maths too, so was surprised when I only got so far through! The other maths one I found fine time-wise though, which is the one they ironically tell you most people won't finish haha!

It was a mix of tests really. Not heard anything back yet though, I imagine next week people will hear back with results.
