      Did you take the ALT or the Spanish test? Passing is good enough man, they don't really care about the score only so long as you make it through the entire process.

      • ALT, had about 7 questions left at the five minute mark and guessed the best I could till the time limit, thought for sure I failed. It was only me and about five other guys till the very end.

              Some of the guys on my table just got up and left, they were so frustrated from the ALT portion I could tell. I just kept hammering on, matching what I could.

                I was flustered when the proctor asked, "who is done?", and half the room rose their hands. I thought to myself I am screwed cause Im no where near finished. This is half way into the ALT portion. I then realized afterwards most of these guys came into the test and were just winging it. Or maybe their just the smarter half?!?

Amen.

                  Keep in mind that a lot of people don't pass the test. Finishing it fast isn't necessarily a good thing.

                      Yeah, the guy next to me just f'd it off, he was flipping through page after page, getting all huffy puffy, then just bubbled like crazy and turned it in. He didn't even take 15 minutes. I don't think he even went through his study booklet.

                            The T.O. outlines the rest of the process for you. You'll either get your medical or interview invite in short order. They're scheduled independently of each other.

                            • Wow the BP really needs bodies, on their website they are stating they need 1000 new agents due to the latest bill that was passed and a additional 1200 positions due to attrition. Wow ,2200 new agents, that would explain why the TO's are going out so quickly.
