What kind of Postal exam score do I need to get a USPS job?

The short answer is that you need one of the top 3 scores. Here are facts that should indicate if you made it to the top 3.

We formerly had extensive details in this blog about what score was needed on exam 473/473E to really get a job. However, exam 473/473E was retired in April 2019 and replaced by four new tests – exams 474, 475, 476 & 477 – that are now used to fill over 90% of all entry level jobs.

These tests are so new that the Postal Service has not yet published stats on failure rates, average scores etc. So it is not yet possible to offer confirmed comments on what score is needed to get a job.

We can however offer a few facts.

  • The highest possible score on these new exams is 100, and 70 is passing.
  • To really get a job, you obviously need to achieve the highest possible score.
  • This means that you need to score as close to 100 as you can possibly manage.
  • As with all Postal exams, effective test preparation is the key to a score high enough to get a job.

That is where we come in. Our USPS Virtual Entry Assessment Test Prep Guide for exams 474, 475, 476 & 477 provides the up-to-date info and realistic practice essential for success.

As usual, we were the first to publish materials for the new Virtual Entry Assessment tests. Also as usual, we assure that you have access to the absolute latest info by constantly monitoring their hiring & testing processes and continuously updating our products.

We will update this blog with firmer info as it is published.
