    Took my test this past weekend, does anyone know how long it takes for scores to post? Do they post on the NTN site?

    I think it took about a week for mine. They post scores on NTN site. How'd you do on the PAT?

    For anyone who was able to attend the orientation meeting a couple of weeks ago, could you fill me in on what I missed out on? Thanks. Have a great weekend!

    I believe an 80% is the average video test score, which is the test mainly being looked at. CSPD should be banding us in the next week, good luck to my fellow applicants.

    I have read on other posts that an average is around 76-78 percent, but I don't know the validity of those scores...pretty much a shot in the dark.

    I got a 76% on the video test... I have prior experience in a VERY high crime area. I think some of the answers I gave probably weren't the right ones they were looking for, but were definitely the ones I would have gone with given the scenario presented on the video (based on my training and experience). I also got a 91% on the written exam.

    I'm sitting in the same boat... Some how, I thought the other tests would weigh in a lot more. Not sure why they weigh the video test so heavily. Other places have made it a pass / fail test and then you prove yourself in an interview. Oh well...

    For those who were given offers, how long after the 2nd visit (after the poly, psych, etc) was it before you knew if you passed all the portions on the 2nd visit? In other words, do they tell you once you complete the psych if you passed, or after the poly?

    feedback at the poly/psych/medical stage is almost immediate.

    Psych: no results given, but meet with psychologist FTF and he lets you know that he will review them later, and if he has any concenrs after meeting with you.
    Poly: no result at test time, but when I asked my BI about results, he said "you wouldn't be talking to me if you hadn't passed"
    Medical: Doc goes over results with you as she evaluates you, and you get immediate feedback on the Eye/hearing and lung test.

    In any recruitment process you can't say how much time would be spent. So take enough time to go for a interview.

    Not sure if anyone else got the update, but I got an email saying band 4 is being sent to basic backgrounds. Guess I am back in the running.

    Thank you, JoeEng. I was curious, how long after your email did you find out about the background investigation? The email told me something like in the next few weeks, wondering if you received news earlier?

    Can really remember...but when I was banded, I was told that I would be under a preliminary background and if I passed there I would go to full background...I have completed the entire process...polygraph, physical, psych, board, and background interview...just waiting on word on who they are going to hire.
