YQM FEAST assessment late Oct/Early Nov

Post by rob9999 » Mon Nov 26, 2018 5:28 pm

Hey all, just wondering if anyone did the FEAST assessment that ran from late Oct thru early Nov? If so, did anyone hear back anything yet? They said mid to late November, so still well within the timeframe, mostly just curious if anyone had gotten contacted yet.

I actually enjoyed it more. I made it to the final interview stage 2 years ago so I've done both systems. The regular assessment was pretty much all generic aptitude testing. FEAST had a component that was aptitude testing, but I'd say about 60% was directly related to ATC skillsets. It's nothing you can prep or study for. Either got it or you don't I guess.

Because of that, though, they've changed their policy. You only get one shot. If you don't pass the FEAST assessment, you don't get another shot (although we were told that poicy could change)

Oh that is great to hear.
I did some research on what the test entails, Wikipedia has some good info!
Im stuck at the DART part :(

I believe NAV decided to let applicants re-take FEAST after 18 months from the first failed attempt. At least that is what the new website states :)
Have you heard back? How do you think you did?

Not necessairily. Joanne was pretty clear that they're going to let us know the results, whether it's good news or not. I also emailed last week and they said they were still tabilulating results and hope to have results by this week

Congrats. Was it in the form of an email? And when did you get the callback?

My FEAST was carried out 17 October and I received an email 21 November advising of moving on to the next step.
