I had my physical this morning and am under the impression I passed.  I was waiting for the email for confirmation and still haven’t heard anything.  When did others hear back about the results?

Well I tried to email her just as a follow up and receive a response that says she is out of the office till next Thursday.  So I’m wondering if that’s the delay.

What did they say at the place after your exam

The physical guy told me I passed.  The visual lady spoke to me as if I was moving on.  She never said I passed but we got into talking about jobs and she gave me the impression that all was good cause she mentioned how this was a great opportunity.  Once I finished I was told I can go and nothing else was said.

She got back to me the next afternoon after taking my medical. I also made sure that I heard "you passed" on both the physical and visual portions of the medical. You're fine brother, if there was an issue they most likely would have let you know.  Did you have to keep doing any of the visual portions continuously?  If not then don't be worried.

Yeah, except the book.  When we got to the two pages with no numbers, which was in the middle of the book I think, and we stopped.  But I feel good you heard the next afternoon.  That means I have time still.

Getting nervous and edging towards freaking out is about right.  It is exactly as they say it, all the signals, 20 indications including all 6 from Amtrak (Zone A), and 20 definitions.  If you have been studying everything and have it down packed then you should be fine.

From my own experience don’t overdue it.  Like don’t go crazy overstudying the night before.  Get enough rest and eat a little something the morning of.  Being nervous is good cause it means you care and want it bad.

Exactly what he said. Relax Friday, let the brain relax. If you don’t know it by tomorrow. It’s too late. After your test Saturday. Grab a drink.

Also don't let the pace of others dictate your pace. It may be tempting to see others finish their exams really quickly. You have three hours, look over your work multiple times with a fine tooth comb. I used all of my 3 hours and I'm happy I did...

Any advice on my situation @drenyce311?  Should I be freaking out? 🙈

No. They’ll call you. Just be patient. They can’t get to everyone at once.

I was the second one done. One of the testers I studied with text me after he was done. He said they grabbed my paper and graded it and the instructor said “he’s golden and making it all the way”. Lol. I wanted to finish first. My classmate beat me to it. Haha. I was prepared.

Another tip guys. After your done. Give yourself 5 minutes to unwind, then go through your exam with a fine tooth comb.

Hey guys. Since we are on the topic of the medical and eye exam, are glasses allowed. I know we need 20/40 vision but that can be with glasses correct?
