One grade will comprise of the video, reading comp, and math sections. And the other will compromise of the personality section. And this grade will weight more than the information section. So say you score a 95 on the information section but high on the personality section, you're going to get a higher list number than someone that scored 100 on the information section but poorly on the personality section. And in order to separate those that scored well on the personality based section, than they will go to score on the information based sections. So say we scored the same on the personality based section, but I got a 99 on the information, that would separate us and give me the higher list number.

    That's just my guess, but when I read that link about how employers use those personality test it got me thinking.
    Is that how they graded exam 6019?

    I have no idea, this is just my guess after what I read about how other companies use these personality test to hire. And the Vulcans stressed at their prep class how they think the personality based section is going to weigh heavily on the grading. I could be completely wrong though, this is just my guess. For all I know maybe they already know they're doing a lottery and the exam is just a formality

    All I know is there are going to be a lot of broken hearts after this exam. This is f#cking bs many are going to protest seriously. Now my other question is how are tiebreakers conducted exactly?

    BTW, who ever is taking the test at the 210 Joralemon location in downtown Brooklyn, I would suggest not driving since it is almost impossible to find parking there. The 4,5 2,3 a,c trains stop within a 1-2 block radius Borough Hall st station. Hope this helps.

    I'm still confused. When does the time start? If you were to watch he video only one or twice would you have more time for the questions?

    For those that have taken the test, how much scrap paper do they give you ? Just from practice I take a lot of notes for videos. And the math I make careless mistakes so I will need quite a bit to double and triple check my answers.

    I'm pretty sure you will have the same amount of time to answer the Q's whether you watch the video once, or three times. I haven't take the test yet but my guess would be they're not going to penalize you for watching the video multiple times.

    Regarding the note taking: Do what works best for you is my suggestion.
    Remember, the method suggested at both tutorials is geared towards someone who has quite possibly never taken an exam before.

    I got this post from someone on the FDNY rant.


    There were no typos or grammatical errors that I can recall. There were a few questions that I thought were poorly worded but they didn't seem erroneous. People are probably reporting different #s of questions because it's split into many parts and you aren't allowed to bring/take anything with you so did portion 1 have 6 questions or 9? With nowhere to take notes about the exam it's more likely that people are miscounting the specific # of questions per section, or throwing in some of the practice questions or survey questions.

    The first 4 portions were a nonissue, however the personality test is anyone's guess.

    Took the test today in Brooklyn. My opinion, it's gonna come down to the personality section. Kinda throws ya for a loop. Again, just my opinion. Just show up, follow directions, do your best and see what happens. Good luck.

    I have already taken the test and you can watch the video up to 3 times. your time limit for the video sections depend on the length of each video and they add a minute or so to the total length of 3 views.

    If I'm not mistaken the Q is, if you have 5 minutes to answer the video Q's, and 9 minutes to watch for example a 3 minute video 3x, and you only watch the video once, do you get 6 minutes added on to your time to answer the Q's?
