Agreed - tbh it should be easy for anybody with pass maths and any form of mechanical aptitude.

i dont think passing is the problem. more down to the fact that only top 5% will go into the next round.

I have never studied higher level math and never studied physics and i got to the interview last time, and i found it quite easy, as they are......
So there's hope for you who dont have the higher level math and physics

It seems so, but alot of people didnt turn up. At the session I was at the room was only half full, and it had been fully subscribed - not that I'am complaining, less people to compete with.

As for clothes - I wore jeans and a shirt - but saw the whole spectrum, from tracksuits to business suits!! Some people dont seem to understand smart casual!!

Figure was approx 4200, your one there gave an exact figure but can't remember it exactly, 4157 or something.

Wasn't too worried about attire, with that many people they won't remember who wore a tracksuit and who put in the effort with a suit!!

For anyone going for this also think about Eurocontrol, last I checked they're constantly recruiting. They cover accomodation and transport costs (even paid for my Aircoach ticket!!!). Pay is pretty good too.
