    I didnt think it was too bad, a bunch of tricky questions though. How do they grade? Top 10% or is there and actual pass/fail test score?

    Not really sure, I passed last time and I believe there was around 160ish go onto the physical and 105 that went onto the poly and chiefs interview. Good luck to everyone.

    160, thats probably a bit more than the top 10% but I would imagine thats how it is with that many people testing.. good luck as well.

    Last test, passing meant 68 or above...but the test had way more people so the curve probably won't be quite the same. I can't wait to see my score! I feel strongly that I'll be moving on to the FFST. Good luck everyone!

    It's all curved. No set number until they see the scores.

    Moving on! Can't wait for the FFST. I wish there was some way to know my score! I know several guys who didn't pass, and we're sure they did fine...so I'm interested to see how I did. Congrats brothers!

    My score is up, either I'm extremely consistent and got the same score or it's showing the same one from 2012 under 2014

    I heard 72 from a pretty good source. Also, I know a guy who got a 71 and an FW.

    Hey can anybody who's taking the FFST before on this thread give me a little update to how they run it? i read in the first couple of posts that the dummy search failed a good amount of people and how that went? Anything will be greatly appreciated

    Good luck to those who passed. If you didn't pass this time around, don't give up, it has taken many people multiple attempts to pass the entry exam and become a member of the OFD.

    The passing score was 72, from what I understand they took the top 126.

    Good luck on the FFST. Remember your scores will average, so if you do well on the practical, you can really bring your written score to the top.

    Orlando makes it fair by not factoring veteran preference until after testing.. vet/medic scored 71 =/ maybe next time guys.. wish you all good luck

    The words of encouragement are much appreciated. I'm hopeful, as I'm sure everyone is, to score high, but Ill be happy if I complete the course after reading how difficult it can be.

    Anyone take the FFST yet? Mine's tomorrow. Just surprised by how quiet this thread has been. Good luck to all of you!

    Not yet, mine's on the 10th. Anxiously waiting. Wish I'd have picked an earlier date now, anticipation killing me. Best of luck again to everyone.

    I hear ya, brother! But think of it this way, you'll have a much shorter wait between test and score...and IMO that's the excruciating one!
