    Scored a 91. Physical and FOAM August 25th. Same score as the last time I took FDNY's exam...atleast this time there shouldn't be 13,000 people ahead of me.

    When you get your email with your results it will have your date on it.

    This process will establish a list for 2012 and 2013, I believe. Not sure when in '12 or '13. I imagine it'll probably be at least next summer before the first recruit class from this process starts.

    I was disappointed when I didn't see a letter in the mail today from the civil service commission, but then I checked my e-mail and there it was. 93%. I'm happy with that.

    Congrats to all that have passes so far. See you down the road hopefully.

    I think the number of those that tested is being over estimated, on the day i tested i did a count of number per row and total number of rows, don't recall the exact total at this time, however when i did the math for maximum over the entire test days i believe i came up with approx 3600. After reading some tested with only 50 to 75 the overall total is probably much closer to 3000.

    Welcomed sight getting test results today 94, i'd love to see the 6 i missed. now i better get myself ready to get through the PCT.

    19 test days, 4 sessions per day.... must have been alot that scored over 71. Which doesn't matter much, the first event of the PCT will sack 50 percent or better.

    Yes sir, that and the people who just don't show up. I'm only worried about looking like a jackass on the FOAM. My first one, so hopefully with enough practice I get it right.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Managed to pull off a 97% without military credit, that should put me in a nice spot pending the PCT and FOAM go well! Good luck to everyone!

    so how does this whole test thing work??..Iv made it to the next step(physical and FOAM)...is this where they decide where we get hired or do they take our test score into consideration also?..What I am asking is...does someone who has a 95 vs someone who has a 75 already have the edge going into the next 2 steps or are we all equal again??

    @FF247-365 Written test as well as the PCT are supposed to be pass/fail only, a 72 and a 99 are viewed the same. FOAM is where we're put into 90,80,or 70 bands.

    with that said, it's entirely possible that at some point in some way our actual test scores could be considered to put us ahead or behind another applicant.

    My only thought on this would be if they didn't intend for the written exam to have any weight in the process other than pass/fail, why would they send you a score AND add veterans credit? Seems to me if it was the earlier option they would just send and email saying "congrats you passed, see you in August". Just my two cents

    I share your thoughts StrangerDanger, they keep score for a reason and in the past they've also kept track of your times during the PCT the first event is for certain pass/fail however the remaining 3 are scored. For example hose drag, if the pass/fail time is maximum 25 seconds and you get it done in 18 seconds, they write down 18 seconds on your sheet. And no we don't get a copy of the scores.

    @galice, i think you're right about the Veterans points, they are added to your FOAM score not the written and for you guys that have the veterans points you benefit better this way.

    Scoring in the 90 band is key, it will be very unlikely that anyone from mid 80 band down will advance from this pool of applicants.

    Banding is based purely on your oral assessment performance. Veterans preference points will be added to this score. PCT and written are strictly pass or fail.
