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

Would you mind sharing those free apps?
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.

There is a surprising section called situational behaviour. The level is higher than "difficult" in a paid app for monitoring ability, applied numeracy and reaction speed.

Damn, how was that section like? Did they give you a scenario and ask you to rank what you would do?

What is the situational behaviour like? It is the one with a slider rating a statement?

Will anyone be willing and caring to shed light on the multiple choice questionnaire from the FAA book for cadets? Did people find it harder as they give you alot more to learn as compared to the old booklet they supplied?

And was the unit conversion just based on metric to metric or imperial to imperial or mixed?

Thanks very much for your info. May I confirm Skytest is still suitable after the change from COMPASS from Cut-E?

From my friend's experience last year, the questionnaire is like CPL standard.
