I haven't heard back either. It's hard not to worry but nothing can be done now, it's just a waiting game! I'm sure you all did fine

Does anyone know if there were candidates for FTE who sat the cut-e tests but didnít get invited to the interview, or did everyone get an interview and the two will be judged together?

Hi All,

Forgive me as there are many more things I bet you guys are concerned with at the moment. After some time licking my wounds, I was wondering if anyone who got past the video assessment could give me some pointers? (I know that must feel an age ago for you guys!)

What format did you go for with your CV? Was it stylised, fancy and laid out, or to the point and plain?
With the essay question, what types of things did you write? I'm especially interested in those that have limited to no flying experience.
The questions that followed the video interview felt quite rushed after having read the text, did you find the same? Did you spend very long describing your answers?

No worries if you're too busy or would rather not answer, but it'd be really helpful for my next attempt. Either way, never thought it could be a possibility but to even get to that stage on my first try I'm quite please.

Sorry again to go a little off piste and good luck to those still in the race!

So, it's through to the BA in person interview? Or you're literally now on the scheme? Congrats either way

No one has heard back from FTE regarding their in person BA email yet. We've all had our online interviews however. Don't lose hope!! Try to stay positive unless you actually hear otherwise

It's the final stage - BA assessment centre - for the Skyborne people now. Next week and the week after.

Hello,

I have now received the generic thank you but no thank you email. In this email it states that no feedback will be given, however at Waterside they told us we would indeed receive feedback.

Has anyone else been rejected at this stage and received feedback?

Secondly, I was near the upper age limit. I've heard that the age limit being 55 is a tick box exercise and anyone over 45 is going to be disadvantaged.

Now I'm not saying this is why I was unsuccessful, as I totally let myself down in the interview, but I would be interested to know how many mature applicants (around the 50 mark) made it through.

Best of luck and congratulations to those that are moving to the next stage and for those of us who aren't, never give up the dream!

Hi adelta,

Sorry to hear youíve received this news. Definitely press for feedback since they did indeed promise it to those who made it to Waterside.

Were you streamed into FTE or Skyborne for the selection process?

Iím not sure of the ages of people who got through, but honestly I donít think people would be disadvantaged based on age, they were quite clear that there were no barriers to entry. If you made it to the first waterside stage then realistically it wouldíve been just based on the interview letting you down sadly.

I think when they said those who get through to waterside they were referring to the final stage, given that FTE individuals didnít go to waterside for their interviews.

FTE did mention when we went to Waterside that anything after the video interview (so the parts they run) such as the written exam, aptitude testing and personal interviews would be provided with feedback if we were not successful.

Ah fair enough! I guess theyíre still doing a lot of work processing applications and some feedback for people may come out at a later date when they have a bit more capacity.

I guess so, they are certainly taking their time with updates! Surely have to be released this week though.

I Sat the FTE Cut-e, I thought I did well but apparently not as I found myself with a rejection letter last week. Obviously It's not fantastic but I will keep trying. However, what confused me was that the letter initially reads "Thank you for attending your interview". Is this the generic rejection letter from BA as they don't know exactly where I failed with FTE or have I genuinely missed an interview?
