The Postal Exam became an extremely difficult hurdle for USPS applicants when it was updated. Only 10-20% of applicants pass the exam’s passing grade of 70% and go on to receive a job offer.

Failing the Postal Exam isn’t just a matter of not getting that one job and being able to apply for other USPS positions. Your Postal Exam score is set in stone for two years and determines your eligibility for ANY role in the USPS.

Most candidates rush in to their first Postal Exam expecting that they can just try again or apply for another role if it doesn’t work out. This is the single biggest mistake you can make.

What Is a Good Score for the USPS Assessment Test?

In order to pass the USPS Exam, you’ll need to achieve a score of at least 70. This, however, doesn’t mean that you’re going to secure a job by simply scoring 70. The passing grade marks the bare minimum you need to achieve in order to be considered for the role.

Once you have achieved a score of 70, your USPS test score will be compared with those of other examines who have also scored above 70: priority in arranging interviews will be given to those with the highest scores, meaning that if you only scored 70 there may be no positions remaining by the time they reach you. You’re going to need to score quite significantly above the passing grade in order to secure any assurance of success.

In short: what is a good score for the USPS assessment test? As close as you can get to 100.
