Quick question. What are the chances to pass the Cute if you have to complete the reaction test two times because you made more than two mistakes at the first time? Which score will they take? The first or second score? Anyone knows?

My understanding is when you made mistake more than twice all the result in first attempted will be invalid and will count the result for second attempt

However it will be recorded for multi attempt, its up to the recruitment to decide the final result

Hi guys,

I applied for the Cadet Program on the 21st of March and haven't heard back from Cathay, I was wondering if this is normal or it's a sign to move onto the next step. Has anyone on this platform or knows someone that has waited longer than I have? I am really worried right now.

Thanks,

I believe it varies between people. Iíve seen some that get their email 4 days later and some 8 months later. I applied in Nov and got mine last Friday.

Hi All, this is Vic.

Nice to meet you all. I am a HK Uni student and my plan is to apply CPP in the coming May-June.

I heard that there is an update for stage 1a which will include cut-e aptitude test, Technical MC question (which is used to be 1b) as well as personality test (which is used to be stage 2). Any recent interviewee can verify this updated interview process ? Is it applicable to local or international applicants or even both ? Also how long does it take to hear from the recruitment team regarding the 1a results ? One day or up to 2 weeks ?

Your helps are much appreciated! Thanks !

Thereís no personality test at 1a or b, itís gone, however, youíre required to complete a work related behavior assessment which has been included in the Cut-e. The selection process for both local and overseas candidates are pretty much the same, however, if youíre residing overseas, they will tend to put you on 1b a day after, only if you pass 1a tho. Generally, they will let you know the result within two weeks, but, if you donít make it to the next stage, they will let you know within one day or two.

Hope it helps.

Hi Divergent,

Thank you for your reply!

Just to Summarize and confirm all the stages in the recent CX Cadet recruitment stages:

Stage 1a will include Cut-E aptitude test (similar to latestpilotjob format), Work related behaviour assessment (I believe the key is being honest? are there any practice? ), Technical MC Questions (Study FAA and BAK)

Stage 1b will be Interview with HR. Are there any assessment in this stage ?

Stage 2 will be abstract reasoning (IQ) Test - (Raven Test), personality / psychometric test and group exercise

Please correct me if I am wrong and Much Appreciated!

Regards,
Vic

Does anyone know if Cathay Dragon and Cathay Pacific run the same test? If so is it all the way through? Partially similar?

Love to hear from someone that has recently done it. Looking at Latestpilotjobs, they don't really have anything for Dragon so I am wondering if it runs very similar?

What you see on Latestpilotjobs is pretty much what you will see on the real test, except, there is no work related behavior assessment on LPJ. I used LPJ to prep for 1a and I passed it with flying colors. You can go ahead and give it a go.

Cheers
Hi there, may I know how did you get through the monitoring test? I found it quite hard to count as it moves instantly, any tricks?
Many Thanks

The only tips I can give you though is to practice, practice more on the easy level, because on the easy level there are less objects to count, and you get more time to count them. Once you feel good about it then you can more onto the next level. That's what I would do. Sorry if I couldn't be more of a help.
Thanks for the advice, is the speed of the real test similar to HARD level? cuz if it is 11+ balls, they just keep on moving.
