Sgt test 2013


Not sure how truthful but I am hearing they may do away with the 70 requirement for this test to make it seem fair. honestly I did study but was rushed and missed some easy questions because I was rushing has anyone heard this dropping of the 70? The extra 30 are legal so not sure what is going to happen.

I'm pretty certain the NOE states that a 70 is required to be eligible. That is not going to change.

No inside info, but my feeling is that is just crazy talk. Nothing will happen with this test. It won't get thrown out, or curved, or held up a "long time" by any lawsuits. People need to let it go.

Just out of curiosity, where did you hear this?

If anyone wants a history lesson, here's the link to the court papers for the 2011 LT exam lawsuit. Check it out and see how "successful" that was. iapps.courts.state.ny.us/iscroll/SQLData.jsp# enter the letters in the captcha screen and it will take you to the papers. The excuses in the court filing are very similar to what the crybabies here are saying on these forums. As you'll see in the judge's decision(dismissal), she didn't give two fcks. I'm not worried in the least.

I can't see them taking away the 70 passing grade. At this point, I've heard so many rumors about this test that I don't know what to believe anymore.

So then what is passing? I got a 74 so should I worry? If so then I will have a lawsuit because the NOE said 70 was passing. Hope the SBA will back me on that one. So far the facts are DCAS screwed up and the SBA is suing.

So far the facts are the SBA is looking into the possibility of legal action. That's a looong way from suing big guy. Whether DCAS screwed up or not is a matter of opinion NOT fact. And the great thing about opinions is that everyone has one. As far as a 74, yes, you passed the exam and are going to make the list. Congrats.

2. GO TO NYCPBA.ORG AND EMAIL** EVERYONE **THE PRESIDENTS, VICE PRESIDENT, THE SECRETARY AND SO FORTH, AND THE TRUSTEES AND THE FIANCIAL SECRETARIES



AT THE VERY WORSE EVERYTHING STAYS THE SAME BUT IF WE ACT MAYBE THEY CAN THROW OUT QUESTIONS OR CURVE ?! WE DONT KNOW UNLESS WE ARE PROACTIVE!!

______________________________________________________________________________________________________



So....wait.....you think emailing the PBA will get questions thrown out and the test curved? Really??...Really?? What exactly does the PBA have to do with the administration of exams and the grading and review process? You know what...this is so retarded I don't know why I'm even entertaining it. Holy Crap.

They won't throw this test out. The only possibility is counting the 30 extra and either curving it, or just allowing for a ridiculously large list (1 correct answer=1 point). Neither of those is likely either.

This isn't some college English Comp class that all the business majors take just to get the Liberal Arts credits out of the way.
