    Default Prince William County Fire Department January 2014

    Hey everyone, I just recently took took the Prince William County fire exam in inches beginning of January 2014 and my results came back as 79.79%..i thought that was my score on the exam. But turns out that wasn't the case. When I emailed them to find out if there were numbers compared to everyone else they told me that 79.79% wasn't my score.. That's how many scored BELOW ME. Meaning 20.21% above me. Anyone else take the exam?! And how do do you feel that score is compared to 600+ people I believe applied?

    Yeah, I emailed them as we'll and they said it was not your actual score but the percent in which you are in. Like Bhemdy said, if you got a 92%, 92% scored below you and 8% scored above you

    I took the test and there are 1300 applicants (that's what they told us on my test day). Good luck.

    Anybody know how long after the polygraph to be informed of results, and if you're moving along in the process? How quickly does the process move for each step?

    Im not sure how fast the process will move, but the tentative date for the academy is late July.

    Are you a medic? Did you take the Polygraph already?

    I'm hoping to get a call for the polygraph soon.

    Haha nice, "you'll hear something in June". I took the poly two weeks ago. When I was leaving the guy said maybe a few weeks, but really had no idea, as the county had just scheduled a bunch more polys with him. Hurry up and wait I guess.

    I just took my psych and am waiting to see if I get to go for my medical. They contacted me a few days after my poly to schedule the psych.

    I'm in the same boat, took my psych a week ago and waiting to hear if I'm moving onto the medical. I was contacted to schedule the psych about two weeks after the poly.
