      So tonight wasn’t really related to the most recent exam it’s for the next one they put on, which they want to do in 18 months but not sure if that will actually happen.

      It could happen in 18 months but it depends on budget, someone asked if they would dip into band 2 for the current exam and the answer was maybe, if they don’t have the money for another exam they will exhaust V Band and Band 1 the move to band 2 but don’t count on it.

      Banding for most recent exam.
      V Band: 101-110%
      Band 1: 90-100%
      Band 2: 80-89%

      No idea how many will be in each band or when our scores will be sent to us, the capitan tonight said he’s asked the exam unit and they haven’t given him an answer.

      Once everyone is in a band everyone is EQUAL, so a 90 is the same as a 100 in a band 1. It’s random selection for medical and background. After completing them it’s on to the selection interview

      The interview is strictly a selection interview, it isn’t scored, you are banded based on your written. After the selection interview you are placed on a wait list for an academy, invited to family day, 48 per academy class with 10-15 alternates. Both Pomona and Del Valle for academy classes.

      They are voting on the 48/96 and are expected to do a trial.

      Also LA city is planning on testing again early next year.

      That’s all I got.

              Band V is veterans. Vets get extra points.

                  Nothing. Last couple of tests from previous years people were saying they received their scores around the 4.5-5 week point so hopefully this week they start getting sent out. Good luck everyone
