Post or pre-protest.....and Curve and/or throwouts


Hello all first I want to say congrats to all of our colleagues who have passed this test your hard work truly paid off and I'm very happy for you and I know you will make great bosses. However they are some of us like myself that are still hanging on by literally a thread. I know a few people that got in the '60s both low and high. I got a 61 I am bummed about it but I did a lot better in this test than I did on the 2017 which is pretty interesting considering how bad this test was. I would like to have this thread for both pre and post protest.We can share possible information (please no rumors) on what Dcas will do with this test as well as our thoughts on what we think will be thrown out in addition to that we can also share thoughts on whether or not decas will propose a curve especially because of the fact that they messed this test up and how much they're going to curve the test by. I know a lot of you that are in my shoes are upset at themselves just as much as I am but know this you did your best you tried your hardest and you put in the work we are still in this just hold tight and pray. I know we will all make it.

 

P.s. those who have the protest early please share info on this thread..

I wouldnt post questions and answers on this site if i was you. There are about 1,000 makeup exam scammers itching to get their hands on as many questions as possible. Lol DCAS tries to say the makeup exam is different but i say bullshit lol

This is a good question , anyone who took 2017, they can shed light ?
I keep hearing it wasnt a curve, they just thru out a ton of questions.
My sgt had a raw score of 72 and ended up with a 81

 I took the 2017...it WAS a curve plus a few throwouts I can confirm that...

Everyone got a 10 point curve  around there

There were 5 throwout/double answers and a curve.

The amount of curve was dependent on how low your score was, guys at the top barely got a point...not 10 lol

Key vs Elite if you did the key would you do it again? If you did elite would you do it again?
Did any do both?

 If I did it again I would do the same exact thing. Key Packets and videos, no live classes, rising star questions, read the raw patrol guide cover to cover + CCRG + LBB, and read elite packets for the bigger sections if I had free time. So I would only spend money on KEY/Rising Star

We shall see,.In the meantime, protest the shit out of this exam! leave no question behind. Fight till the end!!!

Hey guys, I initially got a 67 on the 2016 sgt exam. Once the list came out it had jumped to a 79.
13 points out of nowhere. But I also know guys who scored in the 60s who ultimately ended up failing. Go figure.

Anyway, to put it in perspective, I waited almost 5 years to get promoted from the day I took that test. Start putting in for units now, preferably an investigative track, before they release a list. It is definitely not worth coming on here everyday agonizing over bmoc dates and numbers.

Dont forget where you came from, and dont let it go to your head.

Sores are out, you know (or have an idea of what you may got wrong) so fight to the end my friends,.stay positive !

 this is true...not everyone got a 10 point jump, it varied greatly.  but on average, each question wrong on that test was worth less than a point...so technically, you couldve "passed" that test even while getting more that 30 questions wrong.
