    Great job, good luck to you. I scored a 93, its my first time taking the test I hope that's not to low.
    Is anyone an EMT that gave their certifications at the exam? It still says I don't have any certifications and I was just wondering if anyone else has theirs posted on soaris yet?

    The actual score for a veteran doesn't change, but veterans go ahead of non-vets. IOW, if you score a 100 as a non-veteran, the veteran with a 70 goes ahead of you.

    I hope you have residency.

    Would a non-resident vet be ranked higher on a town/cities list than a non-vet resident? Assuming both selected said town/city for the test

    Got a 98...would putting down MBTA be a good idea?

    If you are a vet, yes. Otherwise don't even bother.

    If the polce test is done the same as the fire test a non vet resident will be higher than a non resident vet in their hometown

    So it's different for the police list? The fire list puts all residents above non residents regardless of vet status. Also I don't see my results on SOARIS, do I need to make a separate account for the police CS test from the account I made for the fire list? I'd think not...

    Guess it's time for me to call Civil Service on this one

    WTF, went down a point! The questions themselves aren't exactly rocket science...Im guessing I took a hit in the BS "work experience/Psych" sections. Someone told me AFTER I took the test, to make sure to never fill out anything in the middle, stick to the extremes of "strongly agree" or "strongly disagree" and to never mark anything "unsure". Not sure how accurate that advice is, but its gonna cost me another $100 and 7 months to find out. This state is a joke, too bad its at the expense of all of us.

    No need to call....you need to click on the "2. Scores & Public Safety Promotional & Non-Public Safety Applicant Exam Information" too see your score. They haven't established a new list yet.

    Pretty sure that's where I lost points the last time too... The first section is a JOKE, basic math and reading comprehension. Asking me if I've ever been late to work... Or had a verbal confrontation with a co-worker? Whaaaa...?? Pretty sure that's why cowboy is on the outside looking in.

    That's alright... About 2 years before I'm financially able to self sponsor full time without putting myself in the poor house. Eff CS.

    How it was done last time, the order was:

    Disabled Vet Resident
    Vet Resident
    Resident
    Disabled Vet Out of Town
    Vet Out of Town
    Out of Town

    I dont think it has changed.

    How big is your town? The first time i took the test I was tied for number 1 with 1 other person in my town and that was with a 95... and in the 2 years they didnt hire anyone haha.

    Add in son/daughter of officer killed in the line of duty at the top and that's the correct order

    I was in the top 10 of my own town and in the top 25 in another...they both hired laterally.

    Children of police officers AND firefighters who died in the line of duty get absolute preference for both tests, as they should. One of my co-worker's father was a firefighter who dropped dead of a heart attack at a fire scene, and he got absolute preference for the police exam, and the reverse would be true.....a child of a police officer who died LOD would get absolute preference on the fire exam.

    I guess reading comprehension is not one of your best traits.
