compass?

So, should a compass test just like Spicejet be expected or something different?

Yes, Jetairways Compass test is same as Spicejet, only addition to it is 30 Atpl level questions. Also they have added a personality analysis round (this is not an elimination round) before interview in which jet will assess your personality and use it as basis for interview round.

I have been getting a few messages about the Jet exam. A lot info is given in this thread but I am guessing no one has time to sit and read.

Well this is how the written exam pattern has been for the past few exams since 2010 , 2011 , 2013 and 2014

You will have 5 papers on the day of the exam. All multiple choice OMR sheets.

Two Papers on Pilot Knowledge from the DGCA syllabus, Two papers on Non Verbal reasoning . One paper commonly called English test is actually a test of Critical Reasoning

* Paper 1 - Multiple Choice Test on the DGCA Technical General subject. If you want the oxford equivalent refer Principles of Flight , Power plant (both Piston and Jet Engines ), Airframes and Systems and Electrics ( yes Jet loves asking questions on Basic electricity like Ohms , Capacitors , Batteries etc )
Each correct answer will gain you one mark . Each answer you mark wrong you lose 1/4 or 0.25

* Paper 2 - The rest of the CPL Topics like Gen Nav , Radio Aids , Instrumentation , Flight Planning ,Mass and Balance, Air Regs , Meteorology etc. Just like Paper 1 each correct answer you will score 1 mark. Each wrong answer negative 0.25

*Paper 3 - Non Verbal Reasoning - This can be anything like Series , Paper Folding , Paper Cutting etc . You can practise this for free here
Non Verbal Reasoning Questions and Answers
Each correct answer 1 mark, each wrong answer negative 0.25

* Paper 4 - Non Verbal reasoning - SPATIAL ORIENTATION - This is test of your spatial reasoning . You can practise it here Cubes and Dice - Non Verbal Reasoning Questions and Answers
*** While this is a multiple choice paper, multiple answers can be right , all answers can be right and none can be right ***
So you have to choose very carefully.
This is also the only paper that where each wrong answer will score you negative 1 mark . Even partially right answers ( For Eg you mark 2/3 right answers ) will be counted as a negative mark
This is the paper you have to be most careful about

* Paper 5 - Critical Reasoning ( English Test ) - This paper you have to read a paragraph and answer questions . This is the only paper without NEGATIVE marking . So make sure you mark everything

As as with all pilot exams Time will be a constraint so answer what you know first and tackle the difficult ones later

Jet Airways does not allow flight computers or scientific calculators . So no difficult or long numerical problems. You can however expect basic numericals which you have to solve manually.



P.S - The above pattern is what Jet Airways has been following all these years . There is absolutely no guarantee whatsoever that they will continue to follow the same .Especially since they removed the GD and IPT rounds and introduced Psychometric tests as the next few stages. They are very short on pilots and can introduce something totally knew that allows them to expedite the process. Be prepared to expect the unexpected

*** Using the information given above will be at your own risk ***

Hi guys
That's a lot of information Cyrilboy,thanks for your effort and time.
I would like to share one info regarding Jet's future recruitments- there is yet another big change in the selection process according to a top official in the training Dept,Jet.The entire selection process is going to be a one day process and they will declare the results on the same day. So they have scrapped the previous selection methods obviously, so no GD, no IPT, no separate psychometry, No interview. In my guess it's going to be one comprehensive online test which probably includes everything.
All the best guys

@flyboy086

If you are type rated then bring that record as well

Since I have been getting a few messages regarding the COMPREHENSIVE TESTING here whats its going to consist of

For Jet airways you will face the following tests as part of the Comprehensive testing ( also known as COMPASS TEST which is used by SpiceJet as well )

1. Spatial Orientation
2. Mental Math
3. Multi Tasking
4. Short Term Memory
5. Pilot Knowledge test ( about 30 questions )

6. Advanced Flight Control Test

You can practice it here but you will need a to buy a one year subscription

@Quebec400

@pooja25 they have not specified anywhere that current ir is a must.
