    Who else submitted the application and is going to the testing on January 7th? I searched for a thread already started but didn't see one.

    I am also going to be at the 1600 test on January 7th. Best of luck to everyone! Has anyone found any helpful links for practice tests? I know the FIRE TEAM tests are very confidential but maybe any similar examples.

    Anyone heard anything on the amount they are looking to hire vs. number that are signed up for the test?

    How'd everyone feel like they did? How did you like the video test format?

    This was my third time taking this type of test, and I felt pretty good about it. My two previous scores were quite different though, so who knows.

    Personally, I like to take more time on certain questions, so I'm not a big fan of the video based format.

    I think it went well, but time will tell! I heard that it's a pass/fail but hoping to hear results soon. Anyone heard much more about the Physical Ability test? Last I heard the practice was Feb 5-11 but I am not sure if that is going to be a date scheduled per candidate, or if those will just be days open for people to show up...

    Anyone get their letter saying whether or not they moved on to the physical agility test?

    I received mine last week. No score, so I am assuming it was pass/fail?

    I received my letter stating that I passed, also enclosed was the date and time for my PAT. I went ahead and scheduled my practice PAT also, just so I know what to expect. Anyone else have their results?

    Definitely not pass/fail. You have been scored, they just don't tell you your score. Your written/PT/oral scores get added together to see if you make the hiring list. Highly recommended you take the practice PAT, technique is half of the test which you will only figure out by doing it.
