There's even a checklist on the back of the PPL application form so that anyone who can read English can check that they've included the various documents that they need to include.
That's fine for those aspects where it is a straightforward ab-initio licence or well-bounded Rating application which does have a simple checklist.
It's not the case for other applications, such as licence conversions and simultaneous Rating applications. I have seen two occasions where the school cast the student adrift there and it did not end well for the student. The school should have caught the errors made by the student - and they were errors, not mistakes. The student had no advice and knew no better; the published instructions are unclear for this and the one-size-fits-all application form further muddied the waters. The individuals concerned felt let down by the school, and I can see why.
