Hello,

Has anyone here applied for the FSO position and taken the test this month (Oct. 2011)?

I took the test back in June. It was hard and I did not score well. Becoming a FSO is very hard and intensive process. Only like 5% of the applicants make the final cut.

I took the test in October for the first time and passed. Now I have to play the waiting game to see if I get invited to the Oral Examination...

I think I'm going to register for the FSOT. I recently graduated with a Poli Sci degree, and I'm not too bad when it comes to international affairs. I remember taking a practice test awhile back and I did alright. I'll look over the basics when it comes how the government functions, the amendments, Declaration of Independence, and Bill of Rights, but that's about it.
