    Got the skinny. First, I wasn’t trying to **** on anybody’s parade. Just was baffled about the results. So here’s the deal.
    If you passed the reading comprehension part, that’s that. That part of the exam has no bearing on your ranking/score.
    The ranking/score is based 100% off the personality section and they give point values to blocks of correct answers and it broke down like this:
    34 or less = Fail
    35-39 correct answers = score of 70
    40-44 = 71
    45-49 = 72
    50-54 = 86
    55-60 = 100

    I’m guessing based on a distribution (normal or otherwise). And in my case I got 49 friggin questions right. So 1 more question correct my score jumps 14 points. But that’s the deal. My answers were correct. Is what it is, I’m not upset and am really happy for those who crushed it. Do good things!
    Interesting. At least there’s some clarity now. Did they explain why they scored it this way? And, was the reading comprehension purely for research?

    • I'm sitting at 244 as of now, really hoping they'll do a couple more large classes to fill these re opening stations. Glad this forum is here so we won't stay in the dark about things. Goodluck to everyone, this might be a good 2 years to be on the list!

        • I heard that the union is investigating the test. Something isnt right with the test in my opinion

          • The union is not investigating the test for non-union members solely because you didn’t score where you think you should be. The city spent what imagine is a lot of money to contract with Fire & Police
            Selection, Inc. (FPSI) for this written test. Like it or not, the city won’t be invalidating this test because you’re upset.

            • Due to sheer numbers alone I agree they won’t invalidate this exam way to many people took it. However anyone here who feels they have a valid point keeping kicking at it. I am still going to do a test review I know it won’t get me where I need to be in the line for certain if there are any errors however I still need to see for myself. This test by many folks account was really weird.

              • The test was stupid easy however you shouldnt be graded on a personality exam... there not definitive answers pure opinionated. Either way I'm in the low 1500s, hopeful but doubtful seems like each test I rank lower but score doesnt really change... maybe one day I'll get the good raffle pick. Good luck everyone

                • Anyone have any success reviewing their test?

                  I’m pretty close to the top and waiting patiently for the next step.
