Just Wanted to start up a new discussion to share thoughts/expierances scores and rankings for those who have taken NYPD Exam 8132 given October 17, 2009.


I thought for the most part it was straight foward, with not as many questions designed to trick you up like Westchester County.


 


Good Luck to everyone

I also took this exam (8123) and thought it was really strait forward.  It seemed as if there were a lot of similar questions asked over and over.  The hardest question on the exam was the one that had a picture of a key.  I dont know about your booklet, but mine was blurry and it was near impossible to make out any distinguishing marks.  Other than that, unless I completely blacked out for some questions, I thought it was rather easy. 


 


Also... when I was about to mark my second question, I realized that I went directly below #1, which would have been number #6.  When others around me finished, I saw their answer sheets (no i was not cheating in any way at all) and some filled out their forms in the way I almost did.. 1, 6, 11, etcs.... Were some of the answer sheets set up that way or were they all the same (going 1,2,3,4, from left to right).. If they all went left to right, I feel sorry for those who filled theirs out wrong.

The key thing, I completely agree, it was almost indistinguishable. Now that you mention the left to right and up and down thing, I think that its designed that way so you can't cheat of the guy sitting next to you, so every other person would be different (best guess, because my answer key went top to bottom.)

I thought that test was WAYYYYYYY too easy. That means I either did really excellent or really bad. Does anyone know when the test results will be available for this exam?


 


Thanks in advance

If you copied down your answers on the Protest form, you will be able to look up how you did online starting november 9th


http://www.nyc.gov/html/employment/examkeys.shtml


the offical scores, probably won't be done (I am guessing here) before the first week of December, gives them enough time to get all the protests compiled and finish the rankings.


 


Good Luck!!

I also took this exam and I found it to be really easy. I figured it would be hard but it was pretty straight foward and I have to agree the part with the key had me a bit lost also, It was kinda hard to distinguish the difference. The only problem that I have is that I didn't copy my answers on the answer sheet, that was really smart of me!!! does anyone know of another way I can get my results for this exam, if so please notify me I have been anxiously waiting for some type of an answer from anywhere in regards to this exam.

I believe you will have to wait for the official scores to come out for you to find out how well you did.

 Yea, I thought the test was straightfoward also.  I do not remember the question with the key though.  What was it asking?

It was asking you to identify the key that best resembles the key above.  Problem is, every key was dark and blurry.

The results for the test are at DCAS online (the direct tlink isn't working right now)


http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcas/html/home/home.shtml


Click on "Exams and Jobs" on the left


and then under Civil service Exams click on  "get  answer keys for exams I've taken" then Click on October, and then finally click on P.O 8132(just make sure to scroll down the pdf till you find which day you took the test and what session)


 


Looks like I got a 97% (with veterans credit added on), as for next step its the waiting game. There still has to be the protest period as well as time for them to come for rankings, sooner rather than later hopefully.

How did you guys calculate the percentages? How many incorrect answers gives you that percentage?

Divide the number of problems you got right by the total number of problems on the test. In my case, I got 81 correct out of 85 (4 wrong). Divide 81 by 85 = 0.95 or 95%.

does anyone know how the extra 5 point residency credit gets averaged into your score? 


also, about mikey's question about the 92 score being good enough, does anyone know how many candidates they are accepting and what percentage score is required to get accepted?

The 5 points residency/veterans credit is added on to your final score. ie if you score a 92 they will add 5 to that and you will end up with a 97.


As far as whats good enough, too early to tell these scores are going to be ranked on a list, the higher up you are on the list the better chance for you to get hired.

Well the protest period won't end until December 12th, so we probably won't see a list until at the earliest end of December or second week of January, that would be my best guess

I got 82 out of 85 = 96.47 + 5 for living within the five boros. 101.47%


Hopefully that puts near the top of the list.  The question is:  When are they going to call this list?

I got 83 out of 85, so a score of 97.65 plus 5 pts for residency for a total of 102.65...it's going to be a looooong wait regardless.

Wow, a perfect score! That's great. As far as a 1600 July 2010 Academy, I don't think any of us have a chance (don't want to rain on anyone's parade). Think about it, from the previous exams, there are nearly 3,500 candidates who are all on the ready to hire list, meaning they have completed all medical, psychological, background investigation, etc... The academy will call these individuals first. Also, I don't think any of us can get all the exams and background investigation done by July... then again, I have heard about "accelerated" processes to who knows. Like I said though, January 2011 would be the earliest call for any of us.

Do you think those 3,500 candidates may be going into the January 2010 class?

After reading about what people on other NYPD forums are writing from hear-say and "rumors", the January 2010 , which was initially canceled, will now be about 100 recruits or so, mainly to have them ready for transit duty. First of all, even if the January 2010 took about 1500, they would have to be from the 3,500 i mentioned earlier, which leaves the remaining ready to hire for July 2010... which gives us absolutely no shot! There is one thing though: Some of thos on the ready to hire list will have their exams expire in the next 6 months or so, which means that if they are not called up for January, that's it for them. Again, I don't want to be negative about any of this but the facts are facts! But hey, I have heard cases where people from 8000 series have been called for July 09 classes... whether true or not, I don't know. Let's just say that there is a 99% chance we won't see any response from the NYPD for a July 2010 call.... but if you do end up being that 1%, more power to you.
