Sorry ,,,, was just tryin to be a bit realistic......but your right ....who knows......They probably wont even use this test bc the judge wont get the results he wants.......unless blacks have their test scored differently than whites or there ar ejust quotas mandated.......i dont see how this is any different than 2007.....the test might be a bit different ,,,,but results will be similar
The definition of insanity is the doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.......I think Gaurafis should take a page from Mr Einstein and rethink his ideas on everything,,,because he will soon realize how he tarnished the lives of so many of us,,,,everyone,,,minorities,,, whites,,, he has cast a shadow over everything.
All I can say is, I hoPe I get to see the next phase of hiring Atleast. I've trained for many months and if I took the physical today as hungover as Iam, I guarantee I'll pass with the first practice run. Everyone keep a cool head when you review your test. If you see a lot of wrong answer don't get discouraged just take a good look at the guy next to you. Trust me he may have done worse than. Good luck everyone and happy mothers day to all your mothers. Keep training and keep trying, see you all june 5 and also may 20th at the ems conference at THE ROCK!!!
Just got back from the review and I gotta say I'm feeling pretty good right now. I got 2 of the information section questions wrong, both were reading comprehension questions. I protested one of them because I thought it was really poorly worded and I stated my case and I think I have a good case. The other one was tricky but I should have caught it so I didn't protest that one. As for the personality questions I got 6 partial credits and full credit for the rest. Out of the partial credit questions I protested one of them because I thought it was an incredibly unfair question. But I'm feeling pretty good right now
no one knows what is a decent amount wrong YET, it was kinda a bad comment, although I can tell you didn't mean it maliciously and actually the opposite.
IMO there a many more obstacles for the people who will get perfect written scored to pass.
For Instance, I have come across at least like 10 people who's mommy signed them up for the test after hearing about it on the news or in the chief. We will just have to see who turns up ready for the other reqs
But I will also be nervous if I was to get many wrong.
I have a feeling I will be protesting about 2 of the Reading comp questions at least. There was one or two times that I couldn't choose between two answers because they both didn't seem specific to the passage despite understanding the passage extremely well.
A question for you guys already at the review. If strongly agree is the right answer and I picked agree, is that partial credit or full credit?
Any ideas when they are going to post the list?
Everyone should be doing some sort of working out. The more intense the better. Do a lot of high intensity interval training and then on your off days just go jogging. If your a fatty, start to lose weight so you don't drop out of the runs
Does anyone know how they will hire off the promo list this time around? After reading through the 6019 thread I was under the impression that they hire a portion off the promo list and a portion off the open competitive list for each class. Last class was about 75 off the promo list and 225 off the open list, according to the 6019 thread. But I was reading the join FDNY Facebook page and saw that the guy answering questions on there said that they will exhaust the promo list before hiring off the open list. Does anyone know if this is true? Hopefully he just made a mistake.
And good point, yes they have to be civil service status for two years,Basically you must be off probie status to be promoted
Just got out of the test review today- Everything went well, but I am definitely glad to have this stage over with.
To the guys that haven't gone yet- best of luck to all of you, stay positive!
Is there a grade difference between strongly agree and agree?
Does anyone know if they are doing any test reviews outside the nyc ?
