Shows on the Portal that the release is on the 22nd but really haven't been hearing much else. Anybody heard anything about percentages and average cutoffs? I probbaly scored in the mid 70's on both tests but I don't know if that is going to be enough.

I feel ya. I test out of cycle on the 22nd. I'm pretty confident I can improve on my scores from last year which were 76 PFE and 82 SKT. I'm just afraid that their going to move the goal posts AGAIN and even if I score 90s it won't be enough.

I suppose if you celebrate passover this year you could potentially come out on top from the introduction of boards next year. Good luck with this year tho!

Best of luck to you all. With boards next year, the ante will go way up, me thinks.

Considering the force reduction measures 17.96 isn't bad! 13E7 was 18.7. I was expecting MUCH lower.

It sounded like they were promoting 2, and I don't mean 2%.

So you're saying there's a chance!

This is actually good. They shouldn't jack up the cutoffs too much.

To all the E-7's, E-8's and especially E-9's who absolutely refuse to get out until you hit HYT, thank you very much for creating what I like to call "rank constipation." I personally know several who are just plain scared of retirement and having to deal with the real world. You are the guys who make it nearly impossibly for the rest of us to move up. I have two years left till I retire as an E-6 but next year I will definitely decline testing. It just isn't worth the headache of constant studying only to get hosed on an EPR and told "NO" yet again.

Maybe you should write a letter to Air Force times on this. I'd LOVE to see the responses.

No thanks, I'll take my abuse right here. Besides, at this point, I'm in a nice quiet office job marking time till retirement. What I do matters but it's not difficult or terribly stressful so I've just learned to be satisfied with retiring E-6. I only wanted E-7 for the money anyway.

Couldn't agree more. Not worth the stress, IMO. The difference in the post-tax retired pay between a 20 year E6 and a 20 year E7 is negligible. There's a little more difference at E7 if you stay until HYT, but who wants to do that?

Promotions are on the individual. Your EPRs have very little effect on the end results. If you need to score 70, 80 or 90 it is up to you. What does a person staying for 20 + years have to do with your ability to get promoted?

Found out from my commander that I made it. After taking about a Bazillion times to make tech. I'm glad I made this rank on the first time.

I got my notice...the Cop cutoff was 352.16...I was five points short. It was my second time testing and last year I was 3.25 points off but the cutoff jumped up 11 points. I scored almost the exact same as last year. I need to make some changes in how I study the PDG.

FY13
PDG 56
SKT 76.76

FY14
PDG 57
SKT 76

The PDG is where I am deficient and I don't like it. I did score 60% higher than my peers on PDG and 83.5% higher (SKT)than my peers.

I hope you do better on next cycle... for some real good study tips see: http://forums.militarytimes.com/showthread.php/8607-WAPS-Test-Study-Techniques?p=341762#post341762 (Start at first post.)

Is there a definitive answer as to when those testing out of cycle find out results/score notices? I tested on the 22nd of May. When can I expect to find out?

I heard that a supplemental promotion list will be released tomorrow. If I tested on the 22nd of May, will I find out tomorrow?

PFE-77

Score 350.XX
