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

Under the Postal Service’s newly instituted Fast Track hiring process, to get a job, you must have the absolute highest score among all applicants for that particular job. The highest scoring applicant automatically receives a job offer conditional upon meeting the appropriate employment requirements.

If the highest scoring applicant is not hired (does not meet the employment requirements, declines the job offer for any reason, or does not reply to the offer), a job offer is sent to the applicant with the second highest score. If the second highest scoring applicant is not hired, a job offer is sent to the applicant with the third highest score. If necessary, offers will continue to be sent out until the job is filled. Applicants occasionally fail to meet Postal employment requirements, but it is rare for an applicant to decline the job offer.

So, what does all this mean in terms of the score you need to get a job? Postal exams 474, 475, 476 & 477 are used to fill over 95% of all entry level jobs. The highest possible score on these exams is 100, and 70 is passing. Putting this altogether, you need a score as close to 100 as you can possibly manage to get a job.

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.
