That's why calculators should be allowed when taking that type of test, cause in reality, whether you're working or not, if you're not able to do a math problem in your head, you're just going to use a calculator. In today's world, most people always have a calculator with them. If you have a cellphone, then you probably have calculator.

            I made educated guesses for the most part...some selections were so off they could be eliminated.

              I would have to disagree with you on that. They are trying to know if the applicants are smart enough to be able to solve a simple math problems and are decent writers. So what if we all have calculators, does that mean that we should not use our brains at all?

                  • Hello everyone
                    I have a question to those who may have an answer. I took my polygraph on the 16th of September and passed it. I haven't heard back at all, not even for my BI. I know on my CASS it says my folder is in the security office. It said that even before I received an email for my polygraph. Is this a normal thing that it's been almost a month now? I only have my drug test, BI, and final PFT2 left. Obviously the job offer has to happen still. If someone may give me some insight I would appreciate it Also, if you pass the polygraph does it go to quality control? Or is that only of you fail it?

                    Thanks a bunch!
                    Melissa

                    • Hey Melissa85! I took my 2nd poly around the same time you took yours. You should be getting a call from someone next week. If you call MHC they will tell you whether or not you pass. It's hard to get a hold of someone but when you do, they will give you that info. What's your Geo? Good luck!

                      • Hi Melissa,

                        I wouldn't worry too much about it. It was a little over a month from when I took my poly till I got a call from my BI. Not every timeline is going to be the same and can depend on who they have available in your location to do your background.

                        • Hey guys Ty for the reply messages. My GEO is northwest/northern border. I was going to call today but decided not to and wait till another week. Perhaps I'll give a jingle on Monday. I've heard on here that some folks never got a message regarding when there BI started. Could it be possible that they had started looking into my back ground or is it only when they email you saying they are?

                          Thanks again!
                          Melissa

                            Hello lady,
                            It is normal for your CASS to say "Your case is in security office" from the day you submitted your sf86 until your case clears adjudication (that was the case with me). I am guessing that your BI timing came with the new FY and that's why it might delayed it a bit, good news is that you past the dreaded polygraph and it's down hill from there.
                            You also never know with BI, for some people starts right after poly before they know, and for some they get called. You are in good shape and things are starting to pick up for all of us who are in the process.

From the looks of several others time lines the drug test was immediately after their b.g was finished. Hoping this will happen soon for me and best of luck to all applicants in this long process!
                              I am part of that group 13-1. I still have not got a green light on my medical. I did it in April. But they did have me start my background check paperwork. I finished it last weekend. Good luck on everything

                                Thanks Jade Just trying to sit here patiently. I know you waited quiet a bit, so this is nothing lol I'm hoping to hear something soon. I have to pass another gate after these phases and that is a job offer. I hope they offer me a position. To go through all of this and not get anything. Dang lol
