Exactly! And i have a feeling that many of the passers are some of the scammers from the 2015 Lt exam who barely passed their sgt exams. I really hope those whose cheated their way to the top get cut on this 300plus capt list

The list will not get cut and the list will not be as big as some of you think. Remember in the past there have been many " fair " exams where people also got 90's. Don't let the noise of the people who pass fool you. Many have failed. 


Agreed. Going by your friends who studied their asses off, or people who take the time to post on a messageboard dedicated to promotional exams isn't a barometer of the population at large. Plenty of people failed, just not a lot of people we know.

If you didn't take the Captains test today you should not be here. You must be on the bottom of your Lt list since you are here praying for a huge list so big that it will be cut. You are over there talking the same stuff over and over again.

 I did pretty well on the Lt test and i hope this is a small list. I dont want to wait 4 years to take the captains exam!

 

And everyone who passed will get made. Relax.

I studied hard, got a 85. I m just thankful all the hard work paid off because this seriously was gonna be my last exam. The exam was not easy. Anyone that put in the work would have saw the tricks and picked up on it. The format was different in regards to typical exam questions and im assuming thats because it was on a computer. At first I was nervous taking it on the computer but after a while you get the hang of it. Definitely recommend guys who will be taking next one to practice taking questions on computer/iPad as opposed to paper because it is more difficult since you cant annotate and find yourself re-reading. I do like the fact you get your score right on the spot. Well thats it for me....no more and or questions from rising, or listening to Mike scream guys look up for a second lol. Thank all the promotional classes for the help they gave. Now where do I pickup my category 1 car?! . Congrats to all the passers. For you haters that want to come on here and talk about list getting cut, take a second and look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself maybe if I didnt spend so much time hating and bad mouthing I would have time to study and be able to pass an exam just saying.

the computerized exam was annoying getting your score was good though

Everyone will get made...the job has over promoted lists in the past, most recently the current Sgt list to get them in for the 2017 Lt test. They did this once on the 03 Lt test as well. If they over promote, they just delay the next exam coming out. Hence why the 2006 Lt list wasn't activated until 2008.


 Couldnt have said it better buddy. People need to relax and stop freaking out...geezzz.

As many people passed this capt test in my command as the lt test. Wowzers. I actually like that the job has turned to fair tests.

Some of the older exams you can blame dcas and the job for writing messed up exams.

 

With a fair test you can only blame yourself.

I think this list could have 300+ on it. I dont think everyone gets made. I think it could be the biggest captains list ever.

I think around 500 or so signed up.  Now I know not everyone showed up but most probably did.   Id say more than half the people that took it passed.

I think that is a very generous estimate. I don't think there ever ever was a 50% passing rate. I think the average is usually around 30%.  Unfortunately I know more than a few who failed and they are smart peoele who I know studied hard.  The test was Fair but not Easy by any means.

And you can usually find some failures by asking around yet nobody seems to have found many failures.  I hope youre right but I think we may be in unprecedented territory.

The 2014 exam was an extremely fair exam also. I'm confident enough to say the list will be well below 300.

Absolutely correct. There is no way this list goes to 300 or above. 200-250, tops

I know someone who got a 40. Miraculously this same person was at the top of their sergeant and lieutenant list which they took upon return from military deployment but wasn't able to pull the same scam off here. So not everyone did pass.

Maybe it's the company I keep and I just know a lot of dumb people, but I don't think so. I'm finding a lot of people who failed. This list is not gonna be as big as everyone thinks.

I know 4 that failed l, 2 actually studied. But I also know 5 that passed studied like maniacs. So basically the hard studiers passed the way I see it. I'm more surprised to see how many people were actually trying to pass this test.

 The bosses are getting younger on this job. Especially with the new tier that a promotion is the only way to increase your pension as ot doesnt apply.

Of the four passers in my command none are eligible for promotion for at least a year and a half. I think this trend will continue seeing a lot of 10 year capts etc.

Actually, no. With regards to the new tier, the Pension is based on your salary, which includes overtime earned. Says it right in the nycpd pension website. Stop spreading false info like 80% of this job.

I'm thinking February earliest / March the latest and then with that you're almost going a year without captain promotions depending on the first class after that so it could be a big group or maybe back to back promotions. Just speculation.

I estimated April. Im hearing many who scored in the 90s are newly promoted and dont have enough time in rank. Therefore, if this list does come out in April, there will probably be a lot of passovers

I think under 300. Everyone will be fine. Over that is a tough sell. The fact one has never been cut and what eze said earlier on this thread is encouraging
