    It was pretty long. I can't believe how much math I had forgotten.

    You'll get your personal percentage score from the test. I don't recall if they would be letting you know if you'll be part of the chunk of people moving on to the next step or not. Hopefully they will.

    I recall the same, the instructor pulled a few of us to the side and said we have a passing score of over 75% and we should recieve an email with the actual score in abour 2 weeks, along with further instructions on the hiring process. Also the highest scores will be chosen for interviews. Hope everyone did well

    ATTENTION FELLOW BROTHERS I HAVE AN IMPORTANT UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Firefighter/Rescuer Recruit I - Montgomery County, MD
    Please share with your potential candidates.

    At this time no test results have come back from the testing company, who administers our written entrance exam.

    Candidates will most likely receive an email from us, which will have their final score along with pertinent information about the next steps in our process.


    Feel free to pass this email on to anyone who had taken the test.

    We are interested in providing quality customer service, so please assist me in getting this message out.

    Lastly, I will be providing an update on the status of recruitment efforts in a follow up email within the next two weeks. I will share the results of each interview we conducted with the candidates.

    Roughly 1600 candidates attended the test. 500 of the applicants had stated they were directly recruited by our personnel. I will be sending you all the data on the remaining 1100 candidates in the next email.

    We are continually evolving and working towards in improving our recruitment efforts, so feel free to pass on any suggestions or ideas towards future efforts.

    Keep in mind, this past enrollment period was only open for less than a month.

    The only reason I took the exam was because they said they dont send it out to the testing company for grading, cause if they did then i would be wasting my time with that bulls**t 12 month rule

    What is this 12 month rule exactly? They told us at the exam that if you took the text and failed you could not apply again for 6 months. So I'm not sure where this 12 month rule is coming from or even means? I passed, but do not know my score. If I didnt score high enough I can take the test again for another 6 to 12 months? I took the test in Montgomery county, can I take the test else where within the 6/12 month period?
