    Mmmm.... Not sure wishing I would have had a little more study time only had 2 weeks once I got the notice and ordered my book wasn't super difficult but never is until you crack open the actual test. I tested in 09 felt pretty good when I left that and I think I was in the second group then before they froze everything. Fingers crossed definitely a lot less people this time I think it was 1500 or so last time? 500 this time I like the odds just have to wait and find out

    The test this time around pretty much follows the format for the last test, but there are extra questions at the end. I'm pretty sure I scored somewhere in the 90's.....we will be able to view our scores online in 7-10 days. Pending a high enough score we will then receive an email outlining the rest of the process. (CPAT, which group you're in, etc.) Good Luck to all of you!

    ok, so we've all taken the test, what are your impressions/feelings?

    I know for sure I missed five, with the possibility of seven total. Not too bad...that puts me in the 93-95% range (as long as I didn't miss any of the others).

    My big question revolves around the personality-based questions.... I understand they are used when ranking those with the same score, i.e....say seven people get a 94, then the other questions are used to "rank" those folks (?).

    Interested in your thoughts about this.

    Are those questions factored-in to our final scores? Do they count against us if we answered "wrong"? I've never had those types of questions, and feel that they are completely subjective, so are there really a "right" or "wrong" answers?

    Good luck to all who tested...we'll get our scores soon.

    So I have heard from not one but two people that they only tested between 230 and 288 applicants. In both situations it involved friends of friends who work for the department so don't quote me on this as this could just be hearsay. Good luck to all that tested. Am already getting anxious for my results. Haha.. I am with Thank You 4 Your Time on the personality questions. If anyone else could shed some light on how those are factored in that would be great. I know that there are some members on here who work for the department, maybe they can chime in.

    Those numbers sound great! I as well would like to know how those personality questions are graded. No one seems to have any info on it.

    94 for me. Anybody know anything about the interview? With the written being weighted 100%, is the interview process for "tie-breaking" purposes or what? Good luck everybody!

    Being that you have received the highest score so far on here, I am curious to know if yours also says "Eligible"?

    Has anyone received emails yet, concerning moving forward in the process? Or do you think it will be a couple days before they start sending them out? Thanks!

    Could be longer than that but idk. We weren't supposed to get scores for 7-10 business days, but I guess there was a small window to see them today. I would suggest checking govjobs frequently to see if there's any change. That's what I'm going to do and ill post if I see anything.

    Yea, I wasn't expecting them so soon, but I'm glad I know. I've been going back and forth between my email and govjobs looking for something. Ill just keep on doing that. I will say something as well if I get a notice. Thanks for the info and help.
