    Only if you don't have veteran points or anything else that awards additional points. If you score 100 and you are eligible for additional points, those points will be added. Basically your additional points can result in a score above 100.

      I second this. I think I'm definitely going to call the listed phone number on Tuesday in order to review my exam. If I legitimately got what I got (above 80 but below 90), okay. I didn't meet the standard. But, something seems off. I've never struggled with a civil service exam before and with veteran points, I barely pass now? That doesn't make any logical sense.

        86 and ranked 530s. Better rank than last time with a score of 100 initially. Bumped to 472 last time after the revision.

          Thanks. Very informative. I'm ranked above 1900, but below 1950 with a score of 82.

          There's always next time, I suppose. I'm just very shocked by this result.

          A sincere good luck to everyone that scored within typical range to be called.

          • I don’t get how they score these tests. I got an 86 and am in the 1700s but someone on here was in the 500s with an 86?

              Are you a philly resident? If not philly residents get preference over people who live outside of the city.

              • Well at least most are on the same accord the scoring process has me totally confused as stated by many civil service exams are not usually any issue like that! As for the last comment something really is not right with that one as u are stating KPW9393 no way there could be that much disparity between where u are and where the other person states they are rank wise compared to score...
                Somebody did something real shaky here with these exams I can’t think anything else at the moment

                • Also the only bump a philly resident gets over another with exact same score is called first to interview it doesn’t move u in a total different area on the list.

                  • HR played me on my Vet points which would have put me into a whole different category. I am still active and understand the rule but come on though after doing all this time I can’t get a proxy preference until I actually have my discharge???? As seen those points matter when u are trying to get in the door... Anyone else have this problem. Please hit me up!! Thanks

                    • 86 - rank 1232. I’m waiting long aren’t I ?

                      • 86 - Ranked in the mid 900's. It's not over folks. Keep your head in the game.

                        • How many people are on this list? And how many people do they usually get through?

                          Comment


                          • As of right now the 121 cadets in class 196 that graduate next Tuesday are not getting assigned anywhere at this time, they are reporting back to the academy after graduation until it’s figured out. Nowhere to put people, best of luck to the people who passed this last test.

                            • Good morning all the shock hits me again this morning about these test results! I spoke to multiple current FF’s last night that I know related to me and just got to know over time preparing for this exam that all hit me up to see if I was going to be joining the team. Told them the outcome and that there is a lot of outcry going on already about this exam and results...I must say heard some things about historical issues with the FD and this leaves me to wonder was this info spot on...I have a different name as some of those I took the exam with that are educated folks so again civil service exam not difficult! See a lot of folks speaking on personality questions. I will say that some in the know spoke on how they do these questions and trained to how to deal with them so that base was covered as well by myself and some others so again I say I see MANY issues that will come up about this exam and those that did well and those that didn’t! Will be very interesting to see what it is seeing as there are no questions about Firefighting knowledge period on the test!
                              Standby see class actions suits on the horizon LOL!

                              • I recieved a 110 on the list with a rank in the top 25, 10 points were for veterans status. Does anyone have any idea when the first class or two could be called up for the academy if all goes well?
