/m1727 87.3 is a very good score in the current version of the 473. It largely depends on location. When I took the 473 to be eligible for consideration as a PSE, I scored a 78.6. I think I got dinged for being honest in the psychological "interview" portion of it because I didn't say I'd run head-first into a brick wall to appease an unreasonable customer, and I'm pretty sure I aced the other part of the test. Anyway, I'm in a rural area with low unemployment so that was enough to get me hired back in (was a PMR before that, and was converted to career 3 months later). In a competitive market (and if the hiring manager wasn't already my boss who liked my work) a 78.6 likely wouldn't have cut it.

I took the test on Jan 6th and rec a 83.90 and got an interview this past Tues for RCA. If you are taking the test time yourself before taking it. Memory section will be a lil harder try abrev add because you will only have five mins to remember abt 8 diff addresses. Timing yourself is important

My test score was 83.3 - I am of the understanding 85 or 90 is the absolute best score that can be achieved. This leaves room for 10 Vet. points. With an 83 I was awarded a "group interview" for a clerks position but no one on one interview. I applied for a RCA position that no one else really wanted and I was hired. I could of held out and interviewed for other offices and believe I would of been hired eventually as an RCA but took the first available job. Took about three months to be hired (lots of previous driving experience) Also this was a long and interesting trip to this point 8 mo's in. I've worked for 0 hours to 50 hours a week and average 4 hours a week overall - better have a way to support yourself if your thinking of taking a RCA position or CCA. I felt like I've paid in to the P.O. in order to have the pleasure (cough) of working there. I do see opportunity and movement available (as a RCA you cannot change position for 1 Year!) So plan on working little to part-time for the first year as you slowly broaden your routes and availability to other offices.

I go and take the test on next Tuesday. I do the practice test online and get very good scores. I'm good in all the areas it's the memory that is giving me trouble. I think I take it online. What are some good techniques for memory?

I took the postal exam 473 today and scored 84.50... I looked at my results and it's saying my expiration date is also today. Does that mean my test is only valid or good for today? Or that I can just look at the results for today? I know, probably a stupid question lol
