    In the OASC, each candidate has to go through an aptitude test, which contains (I was told) 18 different tests. It takes about 5 hours to complete. Can someone please tell me what are they? Can some please describe to me what exactly I have to do in the test? How do they test a candidate? :confused:

    The tests are 6 hours long for Aircrew and 3 hours long for ground branches.

    Most people who go to OASC have at least one Aircrew branch choice, so sit the full 6 hours of tests.

    The tests comprise of hand-eye-foot co-ordination tests, mental arithmetic, spatial awareness, vigilance, and task prioritisation tests.
