Apparently, they have removed the English part and added Aptitude and Personality test to the initial test. Also, there will be a calculator provided for the numerical part. What a change! Anyone got any idea as to how the new math test different from the old one? I was booked in for May 6th, and I absolutely have no idea what to expect. Sweating right now, literally!

I don't understand. It used to be NO CALCULATOR ALLOWED. Now, CALCULATOR WILL BE PROVIDED? What's going on?


Upon arrival at Cathay Dragon House, please register at the front desk.

You are required to complete the following selection tests:
Numeric test
Aptitude test
Personality test

Please bring along a recent passport size photo, attached self-declaration form, duly completed. Stationery and calculator will be provided. Business attire is not necessary.

New style of test

I am booked on 6 May also. Received an email today by surprise, which was also furthered by the way they test us. Are we the first batch of candidates who are tested under the new system or, possibly, pilot test?
Cannot wait to see how it works and you guy. I would very much appreciate if you can share your idea with me. Whatsapp chat is available on 56640314. Let's have this chance treasured and wish our aviation dream can fly us.

So everyone receiving invitations to write the initial test are all locals and live in Hong Kong? correct me if I'm mistaken as I hold a HKID but reside in Canada and was wondering what the situation for international applicants looks like.

Hi everyone, I will have my KA initial test on 13th May (1 month since I submitted my application online). I had a trial of KA cadet program 4 years ago and I did have my aptitude test on a separate day, but now they merged into the same day of initial test. Does anyone know if the content of aptitude test is still the same ?

BTW, good luck for those who will go through the KA selection process !

Seems like the whole apt and numeric test is different. Heard from someone who did it last week, you can use a calc and the apt test is different to how it once was. Not sure on details though, anyone can shed some light?

Could anyone who did the initial test on 29th April share some details with us? I did and passed the initial interview on Jan 2016 and was invited to do the initial test again on 6th May. I am now worried as it seems different from the previous one? But curious like how the differences are? Thanks a lot to anyone who replies my comment!
