I'm not sure how much I can say without violating the NDA. I'll just say that the instructions were specific enough to address your concerns.



Thank you, that's what I was wondering.


Just be sure to write down the format instructions. They're only on the computer and you don't want to be checking back and forth (TBH I don't think they were even accessible during the actual test.)

Are you looking at the PAN portal or FBIjobs.gov portal? The PAN portal is likely to have much more information on when, where, and how to take the next steps.



How do you get to the PAN portal?

I may be using the wrong terminology. It’s the scheduling site at secure.vitapowered.com/FBI/

Do they give status or just scheduling?

Did you receive a reply from them, caterp? I'm still waiting for a response from the official IASP email about the facility issues that I had. If I don't hear back by COB tomorrow, I think I'm going to call HQ and hope that I'm able to connect with someone who can actually help.

@LS96, I concur with wskv - the instructions are clear about what is expected from you.

For those who took the test in mid-December, any news yet?

Is anyone reapplying after passing P2?

I had a P3 invite but turned it down for a different position.

I reapplied in September, but my account still says "under review"

Just seeing if this is normal or if it means I am not considered this time around.

Normally if you reapply, you pick up where you left off. Depending on what region you're in it may take time, as they are starting from the east coast to the west coast.

So far the only notifications (that we have seen on this board) have been nagative for P2; do you think they respond to all of the 'no' applications first and then sort through the 'yes' pile?

I would have guessed that they would work through them chronologically by region; maybe there is a triage method to the madness.....

I would think they would grade by date. I would like to think if one person rates it a no, a backup person looks at it to confirm or overrule. which is why it may take a while. From the other forums, it's been yes' & no's.

From what I've noticed with the couple of no's in this 2018 thread, they've arrived at around the 3 week mark. That consistency combined with the online testing at proctor sites (versus paper-and-pencil at a FO) makes me think (and hope) that it's chronological.

Is anyone nearing or beyond the 3 week mark without hearing anything about their p2?

I took mine on the 18th; same boat.

Not really stressing, but I am a bit anxious about the results.

Has anyone who didn’t finish the exam ever actually pass? I just took my phase 2 but I didn’t finish. I did put something for each section but it wasnt complete sentences. Some were notes I was going to explain more later. I doubt those will even get read. I was one sentence from finishing the 2nd part. Should I consider this the end?

We're in the same boat, mst2018. I was a couple of sentences away from finalizing it, but ran out of time for reasons I've explained earlier in this thread.

I did try to include elements of that part throughout the test, so I hope that will count in my favor.

At the end of day, there are only two possible outcomes: I either passed or I failed. While I'm nervous about the result, I try not to worry too much about it because the outcome is completely out of my hands at this point and it will be one of those two options. If I passed - great - onward to Phase 3; but if I didn't, then I will simply re-apply and be better equipped to handle the test the next time around.

I finished with 1:38 to go. Well, I should really say I thought "I don't know what else I could add or change in the time left." It wasn't my very best work but I included everything relevant and concluded it. If you fail P2 do you get to retake it next year starting with P2?

I think everyone felt that their efforts were around the C+ range....I had about 2:30 left and was frantically checking spelling and grammar - I hit the wall as far as content went.
