    Default San Diego Exam

    How many of you are/were in San Diego taking the recruit exam?

    Without getting specific about whats on the test, because I think they are still testing this afternoon; How do you think you did if you already took it?

    Good luck to all!

    Default Test

    I felt like I did alright. I know I missed a couple on the study material portion of the test because I straight up didn't remember the answer, other than that I felt pretty strong. You?

    Same for me. Feel pretty confident overall but there were a couple on the study section I had to take a guess at...

    I have no idea how I feel about that test? I was surprised that they didn't ask more questions about the study material, but that's a good thing that they didn't. Does anyone out there have any idea how many people tested, and how many they are looking to hire off this test? Good luck to everyone!

    Thumbs up

    Same here. Missed two on the study material portion and possibly two on the initial portion of the exam. I'm sure the top recruits will have a score of 100% so I'm a little disappointed for second guessing myself, but so it goes. Either way, I'm glad I was able to take advantage of the opportunity and also put my test taking skills up against what looks like a solid bunch of recruits.

    Good luck to all you guys and gals!

    I just received my test results today in the mail. I did better than I thought, but still much room for improvement. How did everyone else do?

    Congrats! I got the notice yesterday. I am in category 1 as well. Looks like its you, me, and 100 others in this group.

    I also called and got my actual test score. I got a 95.

    Good luck!

    The letter only states what category you are in, how many are in your category, how many categories are above you, and how long the eligibility list is for.

    I'll keep everyone posted if I hear anything about interviews, hiring, etc. Please do the same!

    Unless things have changed since previous SD tests, your letter means there are 100 others in that group on that test day and time. That doesn't include category 1 for the other testing days/times.

    Just wondering--does City of SD still require graduation from the local fire school? I'm an eastcoaster now, but worked over on that side of the country for a while, and was never able to test for them because of that. Also, do they require medic now?
    Thanks...

    ...according to personnel, Category 1 is based on all tests collectively.

    I believe last year there were only 43 in category 1 and all those hired were from that group of 43.

    I havent gotten my resluts yet, but my buddy who took the test with me got into Cat 2, but the thing thats weird is that it says there are only 49 people in a higher category. Good luck to you and I guess 48 other people.

    When I spoke with personnel they said that there were 102 in category 1 TOTAL. Not just for my day and time. Hope that's true!
