  1. Based on the rate they've moved through the list, the MTA apparently calls in about 100 people a month. So for people further down the list, such as yourself and me (I'm in the 9500 range), the list would have to be extended four years past when it's scheduled to expire, just like the previous list was. I spoke to some conductors and train operators and they told me that they knew of people (or themselves) who were way down in the 8,000 and even 12,000 range that got called up after 8094 was extended. Not sure what will happen this time around. Extending the list another four years saves the MTA the trouble of scheduling tests, grading, etc. I hope they extend it, but I don't know if they're extending lists for other open positions.
  2. I've spoken to other conductors and some told me people got hired as low as 8xxx and even 12xxx. Of course, that was when the list was extended. Is it a certainty that this list expires February 2022? If so, how far down the list could they be realistically expected to get by that time?
  3. All of us? Including someone with a list number of 95XX ? Will they go through the list fast enough to reach that far down before it expires?
  4. That's the thing, the previous exam 8094 was extended for 8 years over the usual 4. I'm just concerned if they could get around to reaching that far down the list in 4 years.
  5. How long did it take them to reach that number?
  6. So if you're 95XX on the list, do you have any realistic shot of being called?
  7. Now let me get this straight - am I to understand that they will get deep into the 9000's calling people from the list this soon? Or is this a question of list numbers being randomly selected by the MTA out of order?
  8. So a score like 95xx would be the equivalent of what? And how long could someone expect to wait if they're in that range?
  9. If you landed in the 9,500 range on this list, do you have any chance of getting called?
  10. When do you reckon they'll start calling people with scores in the range of 92, 91, in how many years do you figure?
  11. So 2,250 OPA letters were sent out so far? How many more do they plan to send out before they fill their quota?
  12. Those of you who got called in for OPA, are you from the promotional list or those who came in off tne street for the exam? If someone got 6 wrong off tne street, are they likely to get called for OPA?
  13. What range would one need to be in to qualify as "high scoring"?
  14. I got 92.5. Hopefully the protest session will bump it up a little higher. How do you figure your wait will take four to five years?
  15. If you got a 92.5, when can you expect to be called up (if at all)?
  16. Is there a procedure whereby the qualifications can be set to extend past the filing date upon an applicant's request? Meaning, you had your qualification requirements satisfied after the filing period expired but they give you an application to ask for waiving the deadline until the date you actually are called in? If there is such a mechanism, I wanna know about it...
  17. If I have a Learner's Permit, is that gonna count if I got my license AFTER Dec 27?
  18. So does anyone know if the process of adjusting the scores based on feedback from the protest sessions has concluded?
  19. Well the most important thing as far as I am concerned is how the protest sessions will impact the compilation of the final list. Hopefully they'll throw several questions out. I was told not long ago by a lady train operator that the MTA has a "severe need" for conductors. Maybe they'll run really deep into this new list, 6601.
  20. Regarding how the protest session works: How is this done behind the scenes, does anyone know? How is a protest evaluated? Meaning, what criteria are used to decide whether an answer should be counted as correct pursuant to a protest?
  21. Ok, I pm'd you, sorry about that thing.
  22. The answer to that question depends on how many questions which were protested are tossed out. I am still wondering how that works. What happened in 8094? Can anyone explain how the protest session works? What determines a revision of the questions and answers? There were 80 questions in 6601. So for example, in my case, I got 74/80 If I protest three wrong answers, and they are tossed, does it become 74/77 or 77/80? (In the first scenario, I get 96.1039, in the second 96.25. That is a BIG difference). Also, is there individual discretion involved in this? Meaning, if one applicant protests and his answer is granted or the question is struck, is that extended to all test takers or just that protestor? I would like to know how these protests are evaluated.
  23. Thanks for the info. Can you tell me who sets the qualifications for the position of T/O? Is that at the Exams Unit at 180 Livingston? or elsewhere? What I would like to do is ask if they could perhaps adjust the requirement so that they defer the 5 years experience requirement. Like making the cutoff date as the day of appointment to schoolcar instead of the date of applying for the exam.
