View Full Version : I PASSED!
Well...looks like the second time around did the trick. To all those who failed the first time...DO NOT give up! I am living proof that if you want it bad enough and if you work hard enough you will pass. All this is to say that i passed the PATI and the WCT and i just wanted to encourage all of you who might need a little encouragement :) I got my results today and i wanted to share my good news with all of you. I don't think i would have been able to pass without Policeprep. It really prepares you for the real thing, trust me. I've read alot of posts that say that they've found the actual PATI harder than the tests on Policeprep, and i would have to say that in my personal experience i will have to disagree. I found the PATI much easier. I completed countless practice tests on this site and averaged between 75-90 %....so if you are in this range you should do well hopefully! The WCT is way harder than the practice exercises on this site so don't forget to put your work in on that. Off to the BPAD next....wish me luck!

Congrats - and now onto the BPAD + Visual and Hearing.
Hey bverspeeten or anyone else with any input....do you have any tips for the BPAD? I've read a few posts that say as long as i don't swear or get angry or stay silent too long...that the BPAD is relatively a common sense exercise and all i need to do is be myself. I'm hoping that it will be as simple as that. Anyhoo...any advice would be greatly appreciated...thanks in advance! I'm testing June 21st in Ottawa.

The only advise that I can give you on the BPad is look at the TV; Speak Clearly; Use Common sense; and you are right don't swear or anything like that. ATS tells you not to worry about using all the time - and they are correct.
hey guest...the above is all good advice but I will offer you another tip...remember that the camera is ON at ALL TIMES...and stays on until the ATS member returns to shut it off ( so uyou could be sitting there for a bit with nothing to do and the camera running) so make sure after each answer you dont start shakin your head, laughing, talkin to yourself or start pickin your nose..when i did mine initial testin about a year ago the ATS staff was tellin us that those are the types of things that cause ppl to fail!!!
Im not goin to lie there was a couple of times where I was fightin back the laughter after giving my answer just b/c the situation was funny and I still passed!!
Good luck be yourself and everything will turn out for the better!!
Keep us posted

thanks for the tips, i will follow them religiously :) ...how long was the time from when you started doing the scenarios till the end? They told me in the letter that the entire process takes about an hour...just wondering if that is accurate. How long did your answers last? I heard you have 45 sec per scenario , but that seems like an awfully long time to be talking....do they take marks off for not talking long enough or are they simply looking for a satisfactory answer regardless of how long you may be talking?

1 hour is pretty accurate.
My answers on each scenario lasted a max of about 15 seconds. So you may find yourself waiting a little bit between scenarios.
Nothing to sweat about really.
Just sit down, follow on screen instructions, and relax.
I was unsure if I did well... however I passed.
