Well, on the bright side for all of you that failed or got a shitty score, 2022 Civil Service Exam is coming up soon in a few months.

Towns and Cities only.

I tried the Hanrahan prep test for the state/muni but that didn’t help me. Anyone know of any other pre-courses that helped them? Also is state buckled in for 4 years before they test again?

They usually are, but I could see them going back on the exam in 2023 potentially just because of the weak turnout in 2021.

How did you get a decimal score? Most people I’ve talked to got a hard score. Like 95 96 etc.
Cities and Towns are round numbers, the MSP uses a decimal system. So a State score for example could be a 97.9 and the Muni score would be 98. I believe it rounds up.

And in 2018, the year CageKicker last took a test it was only Muni because the state wasn’t on the 2018 exam. So his score would have been a round number.

So if you retake in 2022 and your score is different, do they hold the highest, lower, or most recent score? Seems like a lot of complexity to deal with instead of just starting fresh.

My guess would be your best score would stay, the state would make more money that way as people wouldn’t be afraid to take it again and get a lower score
