    Today was my exam. I got there early and things were going great through section 1. All of a sudden the server went down. I was the only one testing the room and I told my proctor. She called the support line and they made me turn off my test in the middle and told me they would contact me when I could take the test again. I am infuriated. I was so ready for today. I've been studying for so long, prepping myself for the chance to prove myself to not only everyone I know but to myself. And I couldn't do that today. I know it gives me time to study more and all that, but I feel let down. I know it was outside of my control, but damn. I hope everything works itself out soon. Vent over. Thanks for listening. You guys are great.
    Man that would infuriate anybody. It's like running out of the tunnel for the Super Bowl and after the first play them saying "Eh you know what, guys? Let's just do this next month or something."
    You hype yourself up for it then have to do it all over again.

      I had my exam today, too, and I have to admit there were about 5 times that the system froze up on me and I thought for sure I was going to find myself in a similar situation. That truly sucks and I feel for you. As someone who works in I.T. supporting massive companies and the problems that they deal with on broad scales, I often forget how much glitches in systems affect individuals and can impact us all. I hope you are given a shot to retest soon and that next time the servers cooperate. Good luck!

          Hey man, that sucks. I know how I was on test day, NERVOUS AS HELL. Keep in the books. I recently moved and found my old study guide with my math problems on notebook paper. I remember what it felt like to rack my brain doing math problems, sitting at my kitchen table like I was back in third grade.

          Anyway, STAY POSITIVE and STAY FOCUSED. This is the best damn job going, and don't let the hiccup be a reflection of the agency. Pass the written, and move through the process. If you get the call, it'll be an awesome story to share with classmates when you're at FLETC.

          • After several long months with no activity, the process is once again moving for me. Polygraph two weeks ago and background is almost completed. Oct. '14.

              So I shouldn't feel bad that I'm an April applicant and have not heard a peep since my interview? 3 months seems LONG....

              Congrats on the movement. I'm guessing that your New Year's Resolution came true.

                  Things are starting to move for us Oct 14 applicants. Thats a great sign. Does anyone know if the ATF May class changed to 48? I know March is 48 but wasn't sure about May.

                    Try waiting 8 months post poly. Oct 14 here as well. I've called down and confirmed that I'm still an active candidate with them but that's all they tell me.
