Well it was too late (and short notice) for him to take it on Tuesday so Wed. at lunchtime he will ride with the recruiter to SA to take the test. He should know the same day how he did on it. He was aiming for a 50 or above to go into the EMS field but he has taken it twice so far and made a 35 the first time & a 32 the second time. Some time has passed & his mind has had time to rest so I'm hoping that he will really concentrate & get the score he needs. And the higher the score the more the sign on bonus you get. He said either way he is signing up & if he does make a low score he will still be in it but go through the local EMS to take classes. But it will be so much easier for him through the guard. Anyway, I will let you know as soon as I can.

Wishing him well, Misti!

I think it's pretty awesome that he's got a focus and direction and he's willing to pursue it either which way. A lot of people spend their whole lives looking for that.

I'm sorry I didn't post earlier, but no, he didn't pass. No He has taken it several times and his score has gone down each time. If he would have gone with his original score, he could have joined but his last score is below the score needed to join. He made a good score on his math but the math section that is the word type problems, he has problems with. So he will be eligible to take it again in October and I'm thinking a month or so before he takes it I'm going to try to find a tutor for him to help work on it. scratchead

I'm sorry to hear he didn't pass, Misti. It's too bad they couldn't test him a different way because many people don't do well on certain types of test questions, although they understand the work, because they have a hard time comprehending the way some tests are done. For example, one of Devin's friends didn't do well on written tests, so they allowed him to take a test verbally.

I think a tutor is a great idea because they would be able to help him prepare for it and can maybe go over examples of the kinds of problems he was struggling with.

Thanks for updating, Misti. I was wondering too.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear he didn't pass Misti. I know you were counting on that!! I like the tutor idea before the fall test---could do wonders! Thumbsup

So SO true Pam. It really is a shame that there aren't other ways of testing. I know my friend has said the same thing about her son---he is so very bright, but just doesn't 'test' well. We're all 'built' differently, and our strong suits aren't always the same as what the next guy's are, you know? Heck, I remember those math story problems clearly---I was terrible with those! Huh?

I just feel so badly for Damis....taking and re-taking a test over and over can really take its toll on a person's self-confidence. No
