    Wow, I was just about to say something like "The scores aren't even out yet". But then I checked and they are. Apparently I got a ???? No idea what that means. Hopefully 9 is the highest civilian score while 10+ are the vets etc.? Any ideas?

    Doubt on the 10+ being vets etc. as one of my friends just checked, normal citizen with no added points, and he got a 10. Let the posts come.

    I got a 9.

    I am hoping that there are score bands from 1-10, with 10 being vets, dvets etc. and 9 being the first band of civilians???

    No worries at all, it is what it is. If we could just figure out how the scores work, I think that would go a long way.....

    From what I hear from those that took the Fire exam the explanation of the bands comes in the mail with your score.

    guys,its pretty much the same as the firefighter test scoring system.for example,if you scored98-100 you would be in band 10, 95-98 you would be in band 9 and so on..not sure the exact numbers but hopefully that helped

    Yeah I got a 10 as well, non-vet, good to know, I am sure the actual mailed score will include guidelines for the banding and whatnot.

    I got an 8 which per the CS email means a score from 90 to 93 which kind of bums me out a bit, thought I did better.

    Quoted from the Email:
    "Your final score is a banded score. The scoring system for this exam consists of 10 score bands; they are listed in descending order on your exam score notification. For instance, if your notification indicates that you are at a score band of 8, it means you scored in the range of 90-93."

    Anyone know if people with a score of an 8 (90-93) have any chance of getting considered? Are there alot of 9 and 10s or is the 8 about average or below?

    I'd say you always have a shot, it depends on the city/town, numbers hired from the list, etc.

    I too am an 8 but I'm also a Vet so that will put me in the first group considered, so as I understand it I'd be competing with a smaller pool than you would if you're a non vet.

    Depends on how many people above you are in 9 or 10. there could be a small group or a shit load.

    Re: CS Marks Posted

    I think that the 9's were 96-100 for the last firefighter test. Which begs the question: What are the 10's? Superscores?

    That would make sense, probably a 10 is a 100 (or close to it) plus extra points for employment experience.
