    Hi guys, had my initial acceptance on the 2nd of March but no aptitude test letter yet. Did anyone else get accepted around the same time and if so have you heard anything yet?

    Many thanks and good luck to you all

    My percentages 96% 86% 46% 99% 99%, I got let down in mechanical reasoning 46 ****Ing percent
    I got my percentages back - 92% 99% 76% 96% 96%. It appears the mechanical reasoning/comprehension is the one to slip up on (the pass grade for that on is 54%). Ironically i thought i had done worst on the calculator paper but i got 99%? I guess you'll never really know until you get your results.

    Did you phone up to see what you got or did you get another letter telling you? I'm still waiting to get my results through. Sat my tests on the 12th of March.

    Also how can results come back at 99% when there was at most 36 questions? even if you got 35 out of 36 then that would be 97.2% haha.

    maybe we actually got 100% but they just don't want to give us the satisfaction of knowing we got 100%. Mmm hmm

    I had to phone him (Kevin i think his name is) but he's difficult to get straight through to so i left him a voicemail to leave me a voicemail with the percentages.

    And yes i thought 99% was abit dubious but the last thing im going to do is question it and find out it was actually 9% ha!

    I wanted to know my scores/ percentages because i never found out last year and it was always in the back of my mind that it was the test that let me down not the interview but who knows.

    Got my percentages back today. 93%,79%,96%,88% and 98%. Also asked about interviews and was told that they could start towards the end of this month! I assumed that they would wait until all the tests had been done before starting the interviews.

    hmmm this is a weird one..

    got my acceptance letter last week saying that I'd made it through the application stage, and that they'd send out details of aptitude times in the near future..


    Today i got another letter through the post, saying once again I'd made it through - BUT my application has been passed onto ECITB

    i'm guessing its because my first choice is Instrument & control maintenance but god knows

    Is there any difference between the ECITB & Opito courses?

    Also is the ECITB course still funded in the same way that the Opito is, eg. Get accomodation, food etc paid for (to an extent)?

    Any help is appreciated, I've also emailed Opito in hope of a reply
