I just received my score from Civil Service, 97, not what I was expecting but I would like to know how other people scored to compare. The letter was postmarked August 2 from Chelsea, so most city residents will receive their notice today.

I got a 96... disappointed, I thought the test was a piece of cake, but hopefully it is enough. After what HRD told me yesterday, I was surprised as hell to find the letter in my mailbox, and I do not live in the city.

Park Ranger, check out the back of your letter - they give explanations for police experience credit rejections, etc.

96! Not my worst, but certainly not my best! I am very disappointed. :cry: But for what it's worth, this test was definately more difficult because of those mistakes on behalf of HRD.

Did they issue a credit for the "self-incrimination" question? I thought I saw somewhere on here before that they did... :?

I got a 96 also. It was more difficult than the past exams but I thought I did better. I really hope my town is low scoring.

91% for my 1st time. Oh well. I still got a few more years in school to raise that up and become ed-ju-ma-cated :)

I took a six point nose dive from last test to this. :evil: :evil: 98 in 2001 and a 93 this time. I don't remember if this was talked about before but can we obtain the test and our answers to see were we went wrong??

An me too saw nothing about experience points on my sheet.
Well I can't wait to find out what people got with no LE experience since all of us seemed to go down the crapper hopefully that will be the trend.
Not like it really matters

You can request a copy of your answer sheet and the HRD answer sheet, but you cannot get the questions. The instructions on how to do that are on the letter with your score.

Tim, I think there is some kind of appeal process. I know others have been denied but later got the points with documentation, etc.

Still waiting for my results, hopefu;;y I don't join the trend of lower test scores, but like they say see you in NH!

Ah........but Kirk, what did you score this time around???

I'm thinking HRD might have messed up on one or two questions that they haven't identified yet.

thimios315...I think the problem with the police experience problem is this..
That category is not for a broad definition of police. That category is designed for persons currently working under the job title that the exam is being given for. Full and Part-time municipal police officers get that credit because they have experience in that job title.
Believe me though, I see what your saying....I don't get it either and I've been sworn for 3 years+

Strat60, I got a 93 % this time around compared to my 100 % the last time around. But i figured i didn't do so well this time around anyway. This was my 4th time taking the exam and this one I feel was harder than the others. :G:

Considering the number of layoffs and all the budget cuts I think it will be a cold day in He$$ before any of us are taken from this list. California is looking good!
