Ok. Got my results. Out of 80 how many are you allowed to get wrong, or what do you guys think would be a good number to still be in the running, I got 7 total incorrect .? Is that a good score out of 80?

You're allowed to get 24 questions wrong max. So with 7 incorrect, your score is 91.25% (73 divided by 80). This might go up, depending on the final answer key.

Obviously the name of the game is to get all 80 questions correct, however we'll see what happens as time progresses...

So I went to the protest session today. Out of the 20 questions I got wrong, I was able to submit a protest for 12 of them. Some of them were obvious, and for the ones I was not able to submit a protest for, it was human error.

We'll see what happens....

Which questions were you able to protest? I got 24, 36, 39, and 80 wrong. I put B for 24, A for 36, A for 39, and B for 80

I noted which ones I thought were protestable/ didn't know the answer to and oddly enough the ones I marked as unsure of at the time I got correct. They were 1, 10, 19, 20, 22, and 42

I protested questions 1, 10, 13, 21, 22, 23, 29, 35, 55, 57, 59 & 78. I'm not going into any further details, especially since we have a lot of anonymous guests on the site, and some of these guests know me in person (trust me)...

I got 74 right...I hope my score goes up a little after the final answer key. I need a better list number than the ones I got for MTA Bus and OA!

How do I protest an answer? Is it too late for me to try ?

Technically, you have 30 days from December 15th to mail in any protests...if you want to protest an answer in person, then it's too late...sorry...

I'm surprised... According to the proposed answers I got 11 wrong. It's too bad I don't have the actual questions to go over them, but those last three certainly did not fool me...

When do they post the real answers and is it on the same site? I got an 80 just wondering if it could be a little higher and how long does it usually take for them tp reach out to you ?

As far as where, it will be on this webpage. As far as when, give them anywhere from a year to 18 months. Once the final answer key is produced, then that's when we'll get our results in the mail.

Ok. so how do I protest via email or postage?

Refer to the back of your "Candidate's Record of Answers" for all of the information. If you lost your copy, you're out of luck...sorry...

Click here for the routes. Should be self-explanatory.

As far as the exams (tests) are concerned, for MaBSOTA (7105) and MTA Bus Company (7300), you will receive a random list #. This random list # will become your list #, providing you pass the BOSS (Bus Operator Selection Survey). Long story short: It's a personality test, that's all.

 

For NYC Transit (7612), since this is civil service, you will take two [2] exams - a civil service exam, which will determine your list #, followed by the BOSS exam.This is the best out of all of them, since you not only will receive a pension from NYCERS, but you'll also be able to take a promotion to Train Operator, compared to MaBSTOA and MTA Bus Company you're not eligible.

 

However, if you're able to get into MaBSOTA and/or MTA Bus Company first, what's good is that you don't have to repeat the intense 10-day training program again. Therefore, all you have to do at that point is wait for your list number to come up depending on how well you did on the civil service exam, in which you need a score of 70% or higher to pass.

 

 

lol this just solved my problem lol.  Thanks young. You always got the answers.

 

So exam 7105 is just the boss exam. But you can't transfer to the other mta groups?

You can, however for you to switch from MTA Bus Company to NYC Transit, you have to take the civil service exam, pass the BOSS exam and wait for your list number to be called. The only advantage is that you're already an MTA Bus Operator so you don't have to go through the 10-day training period again.

did anyone take the boss exam for this exam yet ?

I didn't hear back about the boss, yet. Are they calling people down for that? I'm not sure of the procedures, but don't they have to score everyone first before they call us to take it? Maybe, I'm wrong...

No no, im sorry.  The  exam 7612 most of us took the exam, and its finished. Now we are just waiting for the BOSS exam for 7612. I took it in October. After the exam comes the boss exam.  Some applications for 7612 and 7105 have different criteria. Like 7105 you don't take an exam, just the BOSS survey.  I got confused.  Thats because the mta bus operations has different operations or different departments that work.  They are the same, but not the same. Different departments.  So some tests require a CIVIL exam, and the other just the BOSS.

  Thanks young for the clarification. For about an hour I was totally confused. CIVIL EXAM and BOSS for nyc transit. Got it. Now wonder why the boss for 7105 came so fast, different structured groups.
