    Oral? Resume? Certs? These things have nothing to do with the FDNY testing procedure.

    Written
    Physical Agility
    Psych
    Medical
    Background Investigation

    Those are the steps.

    Sam, What would a perfect score be? Or is the score unlimited based on better physical scores?

    Perfect score on the written is 100
    Perfect score on the physical is 100
    Those two are averaged, your extra credits (residency 5 pts, military 5pts, legacy 10pts) are added, then some weird normalizing formula is applied.

    In theory, the highest score would be 120. But they normalize the scores so it depends on how everybody else did.

    If you get 100 and 100, but have no credits, you'll be like #2000 on the list. I believe the #1 on list 2043 had like 120.5 or something. Hope this answers your question.

    Thanks, I hope that there would be VERY few guys to get 120 then, 110 though shows dedication and loyalty to city and country! 120 shows that plus saddness.
