Fair Test?


I'm hearing you guys got a fair test today... No 2015 Lt Exam nonsense to repeat itself.

Very fair for those who studied hard. I gave away a few easier ones I'm afraid this list will be big and a mid 70's might not cut it over four years.

completely unsubstantiated rumor i heard was 2400 people signed up for this test...my guess, 2200 took it, assuming a generous 40% pass rate, that would be 880 names on the list...definitely would push it, my guess, 700 name long list, everyone gets made

Yeah, if the list actually ends up being more than 700 names, dying would be a legit concern.

The last Lt test was 4/18/15 NOT in 2016. There were 2739 people that filed for that test.

Not easy at all. A few arbitrary questions, not many. But by no means easy. And to the people saying "it's going to be a huge list, ppl are going to die on it" you have no clue what you're talking about.

Definitely a fair and valid exam, but it did have it's tough/tricky moments. The penal law questions were a bit tough as was the Ops Order question.

This was definitely the test to take from everyone I've spoken to.  Even people that barely studied think they may crack a 70.  Looks like this will be a repeat of 2006.  The only saving grace may be that some people just didn't take this test after being jaded from the 2015 test.

How many were on the 2006 list?

 

If 2500 people took this test i cant even see 1 in 4 passing...

Ok the 2006 list had about 1200 names on it. You needed about a 78 to get made. One thing to keep in mind is yanosik and the key and such were allowed to protest back then. We will see how this list goes...

Agreed... the list will be in the 1000s and unfortunately people will die on the list. However, the good thing is the job/dcas got it right with this one. People who gave 6 months of their life to this exam should not get screwed over like the 2015 or even 2011 exam. But caution...it wasn't as easy as some say...just wait until the protest session. God speed fellow sgts

Fair....yes. They went to the procedures expected. However, it was not a ground ball as they say. There were more than a few tricks including OO, Admin guide etc. Excluding the in basket, if you studied I'd say 50-60 percent of the technical knowledge JUMPED OFF THE PAGE AT YOU. The rest was not easily worded. Overall if you studied and failed you have no one to blame but yourself. That's how I feel.

 Mr. Bacon is accurate with the above statement.  I think about 450 or so died on that list.  I'm not saying that is going to happen.  Get on the list first.... then worry about that stuff after.

We will see everyone change their tune come protest day... Down the middle straight forward will turn into "I got a 69 but I didn't study"

 A 69 is the most popular score on these tests. Everyone knows someone who got a 69.

I would say it was the most practical, real-life accurate, and ground ball in-basket I've seen. Other than that, straight forward, kind of difficult, and a bit tricky at times. I think they put together a good test and if I failed, it's my fault.

 100% agree.  I think if you didn't study you would be oblivious to the word play and trickery.  It appeared to be easy on the surface but if you studied hard you'd see the tricks and stay questioning your answers.

 

50 of the questions did jumped out.  30 were very tricky and the other 20 were fast balls down the middle.
