Currently applying for pilot DEO, just got told that my medical was approved. Btw I was sent to Toronto late november. Haven’t been told i was on the competition list yet but they told me an offer would be coming my way as soon as a position open.

Wish me luck.

Came back from ACS on the 17th of January.

Failed for Pilot unfortunately by the smallest margin possible, on the symbolic reasoning category, specifically the Airborne Numerical Test. Was so incredibly close to passing it.

And that category I failed was the same for ACSO so I didn't get it. Only passed for AEC.

I was told to come back next year and redo it so I will definitely be doing that after I work on my weak points.

The test is incredibly demanding and my preparation for mental math is the only thing that helped, besides maybe some flight sims for the hand eye coordination.

Hope I can pass it in January 2020!

In response to the original poster (and you above @AliTheAce), I wanted to provide some info that helped me on the numerical tests, which I always found hard, especially the speed aspect of the tests.

I also used JobTestPrep for practice and it was useful. The problem was that it was fairly expensive and at the time I couldn't really afford additional expenses like this.

If you look around, there are a bunch of free tests online that you can use to practice and are as good as JTP. For me, the best one was PRT (PracticeReasoningTests). Their free numerical practice test is here: https://practicereasoningtests.com/practice-numerical-test.

Anyway good luck to anyone taking these tests. They're tough, but you can practice and improve, it's possible!
