I know someone that used that website before and passed the inital so should be helpful and useful.

The maths test on the COMPASS was 24 questions in a 20 minute limit. Not sure about the new one.
20 questions in 16 Mins.
There are four area of the maths part which are percentage, rule of three, unit conversion and space and area

Dear Swonder,

Would you share the type of tests used by Cut-e.
Many thanks

There is an app called Skytest which can help you but it is paid. Actually, there are few free apps that provide similar training

CX has changed its computer base test for the first interview (Stage One A) and those tests can be found on LatestPilot.

For the Reaction Speed Test, does anyone know which level is the closest one to the one in the real test? I found the hard level one on LatestPilot is insanely fast.

Submitted mine in mid-April and no news as yet.

hey cfdchan, I too have applied in mid April with no news. It wasn't like this when I applied last year as it was quick before. I've been gathering info about the process from different people. PM me to share contacts.

Didn't make it to the next stage. Now, thinking about reapplying for CX but realized that they use the same cut-e test, which is kinda surprising to me. I thought about not telling CX about the test but I fear they may find out later, assuming they use the same system. So I guess I am just trying to figure out how important the consent form is to them and whether or not they will still run a background check on you. Otherwise I'll be stuck in here.
I don't think there is a consent form before taking the test but what I hear from different people is that you cannot take another cut-e test again , whether it was from cathay or dragon, after a year you've taken it. Like you said, they are ultimately the same company and would bound to share the same info. . Sucks that it has to be this way because back then if you fail one of them, you could still try the other.

You may take a look of LatestPilotJobs, they offer some tests, they charge though.

I have googled it but couldn't find anything similar except for the complex control and applied numeracy.

As only computer-based assessment is involved in 1A assessment, should candidates dress in business attire?

Indeed. Looks weird but everyone does so you must to.

Are the unit conversion questions asking strictly going from metric-metric / imperial to imperial or are they mixed like metric to imperial?

For those who took 1A today, have you got email reply already?

By the way, the test is more tough than expected.
