    It's nothing official. Im pretty sure it's just some guys that have masscops.com accounts. I would go, but I'm meeting up with guys from a different online forum that day.

    My friends test at Attleboro only had 2 sections... Did they change something or was that the reason for different locations...

    Rogergoodwin MassCops Member

    No. Your friend can't read/count to 3.

    No bro... My friend is very capable of counting.. No need to be a Troll, it's a legit question.. His test was missing a section and the proctor said there were only 2 parts.

    My proctor told us there were 3 parts, and told us to count all the pages before the test to make sure we had everything. If he didn't get all of the pages, he should contact HRD

    I'm guessing your friend lumped the work styles questionnaire and the personality questionnaire together

    So everyone in his class would need to make it up.

    Respectfully, I call bs on the test AND proctor being wrong.
    ...I can hear the DI's screaming now... "attention to detail!"

    You don't know that. Shit has happened with the cs tests before. I don't know where your base of knowledge is coming from, but I've worked two of these details, and picked up tests at 1 ashburn for the last test. They are vacuumed sealed and put in boxes with tape. But people put them in those packages, anything can happen. The proctors are hired help. Usually teachers who read instructions and administer the test. That's it. They advertise for them in the paper. There's usually 1 or 2 people from CS in the building to receive the tests, but they are not in every room.

    I get that, with people involved anything could happen. But what's more likely
    - the proctor not knowing
    -the directions the proctor reads to the class incorrectly mentioning '2' sections
    -AND all the test booklets for one class being wrong.

    This guys "friend" didn't pay attention.

    Many moons ago took the Registry Police test. ( probably the last one they ever had )
    We were supposed to get a 10-minute heads up before the end of the test.

    Had about a dozen questions was going to save for last and just take a wild guess.
    Out of nowhere it was "pencils down ! "
    Looked at the guy like , really ?

    To me the instructors just look like teachers trying to earn a little extra money on a Saturday. Most of the time it's obvious they've never done it before.
    They never struck me as infallible.
    If there was a mistake file a complaint with civil service. Wish I had many years ago.

    Ya a lot of proctors kind of "phone it in". Most get a few tests a year and the $120 isn't going to make or break them. But a red flag must have been raised when they were told to count the # of pages and they were missing a bunch.
    Idk tho, it's cheap and easy to file an appeal. Might as well.

    HuskyH-2 G-Rap made me do it!

    Doubt it. You had to give you DOB when you signed up if you weren't 21 you got denied. Only people allowed to take it again have to be 19 or 20.

    That's great! I'm glad these kids get the advantage of knowing the questions beforehand. Sounds fair to me.

    Apparently there was a legislative issue with the minimum age for the civil service exam last month. MA Civil Service will be holding another examination for Police Officer on June 24, 2017. This exam will only include municipal agencies, State Police is not included in this exam. The deadline to sign up is May 23, 2017. I called the civil service office and was advised that anyone can sign up for the exam. I will post the link below.

    When did the change the testing requirement? Back in I think 2003 they changed the testing age to 21. Now 14 years later they want to challenge it?

    Before anyone freaks out about having to retake it...

    "if you were between the ages of 19 and 21 on March 25, 2017, you are now eligible to take the exam for Municipal Police and Transit Police (MBTA). "

    I actually called them and asked that question. They told me if you didn't take it already this year and you are not 19 or 20 you can still sign up and take it.
