Wink OMG!! at last, an email from Dragonair Cockpit arrived. but what should i do?

I just received an email like this.
"With reference to your application for the Dragonair Cadet Pilot Programme, we would like to invite you to attend the initial test(Eng & Math) on 18 April. "

OMG!! at last, an email from Dragonair Cockpit arrived. but what should i do?because I am currently studying abroad, in International Christian University, Tokyo, Jpn, and expected to graduate this 29th June.
should i ask them to postpone to after 29th June? if i do tt will i lost my opportunity to be recruited?
............................................................ .............................
and then 2hrs later, another email like this.
it seems like i won't be able to attend any of them from the first stage to the last stage of screening process. 點算呀? 就告訴他我會在6月29號畢業,那天之後才去可以嗎?Would they let me postpone to after 29 June?

If I explain the reason, would Dragonair do me a favour and postpone the Initial Test date for me? That won't reduce my chance of being accepted, will it?

Exactly what I was thinking when I read the post

dave_hello_2001,

I don't think they will have a problem postponing it. You should probably call them directly to clarify. Looks like your recruitment schedule is for MPL2, so if you are doing your Initial Interviews after June 29th, I believe you will have to wait for the CPL or next MPL batch.

Hi guys, dragonair takes in international abinitio cadets? I cant seem to find it on their website, one of their requirements for the CPL/MPL is a HKID.

As, the requirements state, you must hold a HKID to apply - they have gone overseas for interviews because there are HKID holders outside of Hong Kong.

Can't, Mum won't let him go.

It is a school night after all.

Listen kids, if you don't have the balls to make a phone call and reorganise an interview then I would suggest taking a few more years to f%$king grow up before you decide to leave home.

ASL and ASH,

If you want the position attend the testing and interview.
All about priorities.
Get a friend to make notes at your Uni lectures.

Its all about priorities, and nothing's more important than your education.

dave_hello_2001, don't listen to them.

As long as you're willing to work for less and live in a box then you'll do just fine here at Cathay Pacific.

Out interviewers will pass you, our STCs will endorse you and our shareholders will adore you.

welcome.
