    I did the fitness test first, then medical. Doc didn't know that and wondered why my EKG read the way it did. After being informed she thought everything was normal. Otherwise everything was smooth sailing. Went over the max on all parts of the PFT1, except the step test obviously, which is a cadence step. 5 minutes seemed like a long time.

      A GS-07/09 would promote to what a GS -07/11 (if such a step existed ) would make, so figure the difference between what a GS-07/10 makes vs what a GS-07/09 makes. Double that difference.

      Look for the figure on the GS-09 chart that matches or most closely matches by exceeding that figure.

      In your example, that would be a 09/04.

          • Regarding this extra medical paperwork to verify my past issues won't keep me from doing the job required, I just called the nurse and apparently my vision will disqualify me because I can't have LASIK and complete the 3 month exam by the due date... Jan 2nd. LASIK is a big decision, one than I plan to make in a few months, but I can't have it done in the next few weeks. Is there anything I can do to stay on the application process or am I out of luck?

            If I have to step out for this reason, how does reapplying work? Can I reapply when I have the LASIK done in a few months? If so, what transfers? Will I have to retake the entrance exam I took in October (I think), etc?

            Any insight would be greatly appreciated. I was under the impression I could continue the process and just have LASIK done by a certain date (ie. Before being sent to the SU, or prior to reporting to duty station.)

            Thoughts?

            • What is the dress code for medical exam ?

              • Also, what about Border Patrol. I haven't hit the medical step yet. Will that transfer from CBP or might I have a shot if the timing works out that my medical isn't for a few months and I might make the cut in time.

                  What did your eyes test at? They can grant extensions, I was given two extensions for my follow-ups. I'm not so sure about something like LASIK though I think they are only expecting a regular eye exam for the follow-up.

                  Unless you can find a way to pass the eye exam requirements, you most likely have to reapply after waiting 3 months after you get the surgery.

                  • Hey guys a quick question. I had my polygraph on Tuesday. Today I got an email from someone in regards to my application. The person is from the credibility assessment division. All the email said was to give a call at my earliest convince.
                    I called but it was too late, so I left a message. Any ideas on what this means ? Thanks

                        Being that I took this part of the process twice I think I can answer your question. Not sure if you took the entrance exam yet but if you haven't first of all I would advise you to start working out asap. You get a notification for your PFT1 quick. When I took the PFT1 the first time I wasn't working out. I started working out 2 1/2 to 3 weeks before I took it. Which wasn't good I past the first part but failed the second part which is the step up 5 minute cadence. I would recommend you hit the gym and do alot of stairs. Also when you do the step up test make sure you switch legs when stepping up I failed to do so and used my right leg to step up for 4 minutes and therefore I lost strength and cramped up. The second time around I switched leg at the 2 minute mark, then at the 4 minute mark again and made it to 5. Also make sure you stay on cadence with the recording audio that's playing.

                        First time I took the PFT1 I got
                        23 push ups
                        26 sit ups
                        10 side steps
                        49sec on 8 lower lifts
                        4 minutes on step up cadence

                        Re-take PFT1 and passed
                        30 push ups
                        31 sit ups
                        11 side steps
                        ?sec on lower lifts wasn't told my time
                        5 minute step up cadence

                        Edit: One more thing make sure you do 8 lower lifts in less than a minute the faster you do them the more points you get.

                          Thanks. Do you happen to know how long the entrance exam is good for? Or if I'll have to redo it no matter what.

                              Just to piggyback on this a little. I took my first entrance exam in September 2014 and reapplied for 16-1 in September 2015 and it carried over, I did not have to take the test again.
