    HighlyDoubtful, but you never know. They are moving quick tho, too many factors to take into consideration. I wouldn’t bank on this job with that list number. List expires February 2022 

    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?

    Be patient you guys. All of you will get hired. Just a matter of time. Stay busy and enjoy the holidays with your family. 

    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?

    Don't know. Probably the entire life of the exam. How long is it good for? 4 years?

    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.

    I may need to start checking my mail if this is the case. I’m list # 99xx and hopefully I don’t have to come in this weekend. Hopefully, before years end I get in and take OPA test. 

    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?

    So if your number is 10,000  I would consider it like 6,500. Even if you are number 900, consider it 500.  This is just a number.

    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?

    Took my OPA yesterday 10/17 and I was told by one of the supervisors that only the top 2,250 people from the exam received OPA letters with more batches to be going out soon.

    So 2,250 OPA letters were sent out so far? How many more do they plan to send out before they fill their quota?

  7. Thanks for letting me know. Good luck to all. Mta alway hiring process is like traffic.

    Most likely all of you who score over 95 will be hired in late 2018 and early 2019,

    Good luck to all.


    Take other exam to have a few back up plans.

    Why the conductor point at something st every station.?

    If you got a 92.5, when can you expect to be called up (if at all)?

  8. No it won't. Like Seven said, they do, and will, check up on this stuff...

    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...

  9. 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.

  10. ren i would like to tell you this bro don't become another lisa cause you will get banned you just took the test so relax i took my exam in almost 8 years ago and just now started my process final medical is tomorrow and second don't ever just call somebody first without asking bro not a good look at all.

    Ok, I pm'd you, sorry about that thing.

  11. I'm wondering what position I'm in with 4 wrong.I'm not obsessed with the exam at all.I am curious though.

    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




    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.

  12. 4.5 is not 5, so no.


    2 years of work study must be paid. If wages were not earned that were taxable to you at the end of the year, it doesn't count. If doing work study was a condition of attending college but was never compensated, it doesn't count.


    If it was compensated, you will receive part time credit based on a full work week. So if you worked 20 hours a week, 2 months of work study at 20 hours a week = 1 month of full time work.


    Those must be added together to get 5 years, not 4.5, not 4.99.


    If you don't have that by the cutoff date, you will be disqualified.

    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.

  13. I have another question about qualifications for T/O:


    The education and experience requirement asks for 5 years of paid full-time work, with part-time work being pro-rated, and with up to 4 years of college being able to substitute for the work requirement (30 credits for each year of work to be substituted).


    So suppose I have 76 credits. Could that count as 2.5 years?


    And if so, let's also suppose that I have about 2 years of work-study in college, which is part-time. There were about maybe 2-3 months in those 2 years when I wasn't working.


    In total, I would have about maybe 4.5 years or so of combined work/education. Would that be sufficient to satisfy the 5 year requirement?

    Or put it another way, do they allow rounding off years and months? Say, 4.5 into 5? And would they "pro-rate" the part-time work experience?
