Seriously, anyone has anything better to say other than asking people to join a study group? Would it better if there is a separated thread that is opened specifically for study group mates? Would it be better? Just a thought.

Agree. It will be good if the conversation contains more "nutrition" like any change on the interview and the questions ask this year.

I have my 1A on the 15th.

furqanstriker has given me a lot of info on the new testing method (cut-e).

Apparently just Maths basic + Reaction + Hand eye + Personality test.
The maths section on the practice tests online link they send you seems to be more of a business math thing and 20 question in 16 minutes for the CX test. And no joystick in hand eye test, just a keyboard.

Maybe I'll just use SkyTest for this.

Anyone got more to add to that?

Nah, that practice test is just a sample for some of the products they offer. Not particularly what Cathay will test for.

Use this for what cathay will ask for -
https://goo.gl/Y2rQa9 - Assessments for Airline Pilots, Copilots, and Flight Engineers
or
https://goo.gl/tr7aNo - Assessments for Commercial Pilots

Ohh thank you!! Ive looked through those websites too! But just wasnt sure if its gonna be in the assessment, coz they "recommend" to practice those, which was quite misleading tbh....

Hi Pandaman,
Ive been told that they won't consider applicants that have failed the Flight Grading. Are you allowed to reapply? My friend has failed last year and received an email from HR stating that he will not be reconsidered again. It would be great news if there are instances where failed flight graders can reapply!

Best of luck to you too! hopefully we can all be successful.
Cheers

So it looks like you have received the invitation to the interview already? Mind if I ask when did you receive that? I submitted mine in the beginning of April, and still nothing from Cathay

Well if you see the link above. Some of the items they test us on are the same as the compass test. Maybe it just like the COMPASS test but rebranded by this cut-e company.

For the JKI test, they don't even give out the booklet and more and the booklet was quite out dated. They just tell you to download the PHAK. I know the multi choice test is on the 2nd day. It also looks like it might just be like a FAA private pilot test.

Initial A - You will be given two hours to complete the initial computer based assessments.

Successful candidates will proceed to Initial B assessment at Cathay City which will consists of:

- A 45 minute interview - personal and technical questions
- A multiple choice technical questionnaire (60 mins)

I am using SkyTest for the preperation, anyone knows which task would be similar Cut-e as CX is using for the new selection process.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the useful info you and furqanstriker has given to us so far.

Seems a bit unusual if CX scaled down the COMPASS test but hey I'm not complaining. You mentioned that they sent you a link to something about the maths. Just to clarify are you saying that along with the PHAK they send you a link where you can practice the maths that they will test you on? And with the PHAK what sections would they want you to study? Cause I've got the book and been studying on it and dont think CX would send the book to candidates who have no experience and expect them to learn the whole book in a month or less.
