    I looked at my old answer sheet from 6019, and there were 45 questions on answer sheet #1. Questions 1-5 were worth 1 point, and questions 6-45 were worth 1/8 of a point. For answer sheet #2, questions 1-5 were worth 1 point. Questions 6-110 were worth 1/3 of a point, and questions 111-150 were worth 1 point. Hope that helps![/QUOTE]


    Very helpful, thanks! Obv this test is very different but it's interesting to see how many Q's on the last test were worth less than a point. Wonder how it's going to go this time around.

    Not sure. The PSI website will have the available dates. I'd get on it though. There weren't many choices last weekend when I signed up.

    Default Test Review

    Does anyone know, once the questions/answers are reviewed and some questions are deemed arguable if they are going to change everyone's score for that particular question or drop that question in general or is it going to be on an individual basis? Because if that's the case there are going to be lots of people on the lawsuit bandwagon and say that they were not treated fairly in the testing process, which may call for another test. You cant give one person credit and not give another person credit for answering the same question incorrectly.

    As has been stated on this thread already, what happens for one person happens for all when it comes to altering of protested answers. If more than one choice is allowed, they're allowed for all. If the question gets dropped completely, it's dropped for all.

    Now that said, the sketchy part with this test has to do with the various different versions of tests and the different questions some people had that others didn't, and their difficulty levels. This is the area I might see an issue IMO.

    after myself and some friends all took the exam and testing was complete we figured out that most of the video questions and reading comp/ math were almost the same. the personality questions where the ones that varried the most

    Default Merit Matters meeting

    So I went to the meeting last night and first thing is first, I was one of only three test takers, do not think that any of you are alone in the process; all who support merit are in this together. The reception from most of the guys/girls was positive and most importantly, we had two Exam 6019 people who were there, with one being a girl who has incredible organizing skills and some important insight.

    With that being said; the meeting went over some of the more important insights and said that these race cases generally are started and ended by the fact that one group feels that not enough is being to done to promote them but those then that go in with them are lumped together and generally raises questions then providing answers. It destroys the importance of being the best and instead promotes the idea of differences and subjectivity. Also, the word quota has been thrown out the window and is now being supplanted with words like 'goal', 'target', and 'hiring group'.

    Also I know dkjets was on you guys but we need to organize. If you would like to PM me your E-mails, we can set up a meeting night in June (phone numbers are good too by the way.) By organizing and setting up our message we can start moving ourselves along in the process. Also by the end of this week, I can set you all up with a newsletter going over key points!

    Keep in touch!

    Skav, we aren't going to discuss the test anymore than saying it was hard/fair or easy/fun. All of us do not know about the grading anymore than what we currently know!

    So, I took the test about a week and a half ago and the post test anxiety gets worse every day. Even though theres no way to know yet I feel like I did as well as I could have so at least theres no regrets about that aspect haha. Gonna sign up for the review session tonight but dont we have to have some sort of right/ wrong answer key mailed to us by then?

    I mean we cant just go in to review and contest when we dont know the answers we put right? I might be missing something, never did the 6019 review session.

    According to what PSI has told me, we will have no idea of how we did before we sit down to review/protest. Makes absolutely no sense, but that's what I was told when I called.

    The way I have it in my head, they're gonna show us the questions we got wrong when we sit down for the session. No numerical score, no list number. Just the questions we got wrong and their correct choice. Maybe they'll let us watch the vids again at our discretion for context and whatnot. I imagine the reading comp passages as well. Seems pretty simple to me.

    Who knows about the psych questions though. If I recall correctly, we were indeed allowed to protest those on the last test.

    not knowing your score till you sit down is pretty nerve wracking. What if they tell you that you scored like an 79.
