    • Didn’t get an email for the proctored exam. Anyone else? I wonder if more emails are going out this week. Never got a failure notification as well.

        Well I’m keeping fingers crossed but doesn’t look good for those who didn’t get email for the proctored exam

    • I’m a preferred who passed everything last DH. I didn’t receive any emails about the proctored exam or having already completed it.

        What exactly is a "preferred" candidate?

        I'm in the same boat except I received emails saying I don't need to take any unproctored assessments. However, I technically never received anything last DH telling me I passed the proctored assessment, I figured out I passed because some offices reached out to me gauging interest.

    • Anyone still processing through the first 2019 DH? I am down to just the PFT, everything else is confirmed cleared. All has been quiet for a while and not many new updates. Is there a hold for the time being?

        How long has your process been from start to this point?

    • Anyone else get the ineligible email even though they didn't take assessments this go round and passed everything from the April DH? I have a feeling something is messed up on their end with people who didn't take assessments for some reason.

      • There is a study guide on Amazon. The cover sure looks like the free study guide on the HSI website. Anyone get sucked into buying it only to find out it's free? Or is it legit?

        • I got an email saying my score was too low from this years announcement. Thing is, they never emailed me to take a proctored test this year. Anyone know what the deal is?

            Well a friend of mine is 38 and has 10yrs of fed LE time. He was disqualified when he answered he was over 37, but with qualified time. He checked afterward and his answer was correct. Tried emailing and calling but crickets.....

          • So I take the proctored test this week. Do you get a pass/fail right after you take it?

              RJflyer did you study for it? Or was it like most others you've taken?

              boconnor I looked over the study guide on the HSI website. Its pretty comprehensive and I didn't feel like there were any surprises on the actual test. If you're comfortable with the types of questions on the study guide, then the exam shouldn't be difficult

              Is there an incentive to taking the test early? I scheduled mine for the end of the month for some time to go over the material.

              jdpopo yes there is a benefit to testing early. I wouldn’t be with my current agency had I waited and not finished things faster. They closed hiring before I would have taken the medical. As a direct hire announcement the Office will start contacting people as soon as apps come in, meaning they could hire sooner than later...

          • No incentive for taking it early, study while you can. The incentive comes from passing it.

              Copy. The sample tests seem easy enough. Though having been in LE for 16yrs, it's been ages since I've taken such a test. Refresher time.

          • Just took the test this morning. Took other entry exams like this before and passed them, have not gotten word on this one yet. Thought this was more difficult then others. Definitely freshen up on the material and good luck to all!

            • Took the Special Agent Battery this morning. It’s the hardest entrance exam I’ve seen to date. I suggest looking at the study guide provided by ICE and googling similar type word problems as a refresher. Don’t ask or PM me about what’s on the test because they make you agree not to disclose it. The study guide is beneficial...

                The FBI SA entrance exam wasn't that hard. Surprisingly, Customs was more of a challenge for me. Now the FBI Intelligence Analyst exam is extremely difficult.

              I took the FBI exam in 2018. HSI was harder in my opinion, but obviously that's subjective.
