Where am I ranked on the eligible list?
All candidates on the list are ranked in score order, based on the number of eligible candidates. If there is a tie score, the candidates receive the same ranking. For example, if two people have a score of 86.44 and are ranked at #8 then both are ranked 8. If the next candidate’s score on the list is an 87, that candidate would be ranked 7 due to their higher score.
Promotional candidates are ranked at the top of the list followed by open competitive candidates to complete the list. Departments receive an even number of candidates from the Promotional and Open Competitive groups based on how many they wish to interview. For example: If a department requests 6 names to interview, they will receive the top three Promotional candidate’s names and the top three Open Competitive candidate’s names.
