Subject of Examination
There will be no written test. The test will consist of an evaluation of your education and experience. When you apply, you must provide complete information to show that you meet the minimum qualifications. Do NOT send resumes. If you apply using the NYS-APP form and you need more space, attach additional 8 1/2" x 11" sheets following the same format used on the application form.
If you meet the Minimum Qualifications you will be sent a supplemental questionnaire to complete and return. The questionnaire will be used to evaluate the appropriateness and breadth of your education and experience against the general background/critical activities of the position. This questionnaire will be the only basis for rating your education and experience.
Your final score must be 70 or higher in order to pass. Rank on the eligible list will be determined after adding any wartime veterans' and Civil Service Law Section 85-a credits to your final passing score.
