    Where is this info? I want to send it to my relative who got a 98 like me. I would also like to ready it myself. thanks

    Obviously with a 98 you may be waiting a while, especially because you never know what could happen in 2 years, but I would not give up if I had that score.

    First, the irony of you calling something "the dumbest thing ever" and you cannot even spell "Dumbest".

    Second, as far as the point system, it serves a very good purpose on many levels.

    1. It allows Veterans to get extra credit. And they absolutely should get extra credit. Anybody who volunteered to serve this country deserves that bonus. And not to mention, they went through basic training and had military discipline. If they made it through that, the Academy and rank structure of the FD will not be as big of a challenge.

    2. It gives extra credit to children and siblings of Firefighters and Police who died in the line of the duty. This requires no explanation at all as to why it exists and why it's the right thing to do.

    3. It gives preference to residents of the city. People who have a vested interest in the safety of the city and likely are familiar with the city. They are also more likely to be able to show up on short notice if the need arises. All important things.

    Nothing discriminatory at all about the point system. And plenty of other departments have a similar point system in place. The reason you think it's "Dumb" is because you likely do not qualify for any of the extra points.

    I understand your frustration, it would frustrate me too. But, do you really think that Veterans and family members of people killed in the line of duty should not have an advantage? Those extra points help them, but it's not like you have people who bombed the written test and only have a low list number because of the bonus points. Their are vets who even with those bonus points are not even in the hundreds.

    Making sure I understand the score on the right of the sheet is the final (combined score if you have any extra credit) So if someone test score says 85 this also includes any residency or veteran ect correct?

    Im super frustrated, with alot of stuff. I work hard at my pos job, for pennys and the only reason why I stay there is because I have a house, a kid, and a wife. I was disqualified about a week before the NYPD academy because of BS pysch questions about not knowing how many times from 2003 - 2008 I "got drunk". Now im almost 30 years old , I get a really good score on a great position I really want and I can't in no way get on because I do not live in NYC, I do not come from a family of firefighters, I was never in the army, ect. No im just a normal guy that really wanted a position and I was about 2 questions off from getting it, but no I get 2 wrong on the test and then the "psych" questions did me in. I didnt lie on those questions, when it said how many times you called out of work in the last year, I said 3-4 because i just had a daughter and realistically I was out 3-4, and I get PC or even NC for that and stupid other questions.. its just very frustrating

    Consider taking the NYPD exam again. They give it every month. The age requirement, I believe, is that you can't be over 35 at the time you take the test. So you would be good if you take it now. Also, as an older guy, I can tell you, if you have a house, a wife and a baby you probably are long passed getting drunk. It may take a couple of years until you get called but during that time you will establish that you have matured since the last time you were called for the NYPD. Don't give up keep plugging away and you will be rewarded. If you feel like giving up, do it for your family. You are allowed to lick you wounds for a few days, then get back in the fight.

    Don't sweat it bro...293 people will probably amount to ehh..maybe 100. I HIGHLY doubt that these people who couldn't take a simple test serious have been working out training for a CPAT and sure as heck aren't out running miles doing sit ups and pull ups..

    I didn't take the past exams..6019 and the prior but from what I understand there wasn't a personality portion weighed heavily like exam 2000. So, if someone can't complete simple reading comprehension, math, and following instructions do you really think that they will be able to withstand the academic standards of the academy? How many of the 293 will be academy ready in the next 8 months or so?

    Be able to pass a physical?
    Be able to run the basic PT test?
    Be able to withstand the PT regimen?
    Be able to deal with the quasi-military environment, and having instructors bust your balls ALL the time?

    Don't sweat it men...those of us down the list will be fine..we might just get pushed to the next class..
    I don't care if I'm the last person to get into the last class off this test..as long as I get in there...at the end of the day..if I make it #1 or #whatever...we will still be FDNY firefighters..the cream will rise to the top..don't let this speed bump get to you..

    On a side note..How did they pick the 293? throw darts at a wall full of pictures or something?


    We got this..

    I would say maybe 30 of them will be able to pass all the steps like the physical and medical. Those exams were in 99 and 02. These are candidates that failed a ridiculously easy written exam. Honestly anyone that failed either of those 2 exams will never be able to academically pass the fire academy.

    Imagine a 29 year old that sat for the 1999 exam...14 years later at the age of 43 (when many FF can retire) trying to complete all these steps. Yes its possible but unlikely
