    the selection criteria for wizzair cadet pilot are very subjective! my son took the exam and failed! math writing physics writing psychology English over 70%! Compass 80%, mental math arithmetical mental break! example 34 times 24 answers in 10 seconds! 234 times 23 answers in ten seconds! it's a joke! mother and father of geniuses in mathematics can not do such a thing! not all pilots in the world can do such a thing! recruiting is a joke! either you work in their system as a steward or else you have a chance! there is no display of results you can't appeal at least in writing! I say this because it is not an employment, although even in an employment competition the results are displayed at least in the eyes of the world and, now, even at the driving school, an appeal can be made! I think the recruitment policy should be very objective! you still can't put a plane in the hands of a fool! so dear aspirants I wish you success but I think it's like the lottery!
