RE: Survey: Input your score for size of List


Are most people adding their true score or what they think what they will end up with? ie longevity, military time, etc....

As of today Wednesday 11/1/2017, with 150 votes, if Spartan is right and the list is about 1050, here is what the % means in numbers and where that number would land you on the list: APPROXIMATELY.

       # people with score                    Spot on list

95-100@8%=84 people ====0-100s on list

90-94@14.7%=154 people ===under 200on list

85-89@18.7%=196 people ===2-400s on list

80-84@22%=231 people ====4-600s on list

75-79=20%=210 people =====6-800s on list

70-74=11.3%=118people =====8-900+ on list

 

 

Calculations:

 

%/100*total= number

 

8/100*1050=84

I concur with these stats sir ! 


 If 22% of test passers got a 90 or up then this list will have 3900 names on it. I could see that happening...


 Wait..... what? LoL

Thats a very good sample size. Sometimes, statisticians only take about 600 to 1000 samples for a population of millions of people.

 No it's not. Most people voting are people that passed and then within that group people who did well. A +90 on ANY LIST will never be #200.

 The 2006 list had 1285 people and a 90+ put you coincidentally in the top 90.

Half of the people who voted 95-100 probably failed.

So now that were hearig a list of 1287 people, according to this survey, if we were to apply the percentages, roughly 290 people scored 90 and above and around 500 scored between 80 and 90. Thats about 800 people 80 and above. Do we think this survey is a fair representation of whats to come?

I don't think so. People lower on the list or without the time in rank could care less when this test comes out. Thus, they're not on the board and aren't voting.

I do think there will be a lot of people above a 90, but not 300. 140 above a 90 is my guess.

I dont think the survey is that far off. Ive always felt from the beginning there were going to be a lot of high scores. I dont think there will be more than 250 people who scored 90 or better but definitely more than 150. Dont forget, people with a raw score in the mid to high 80s who pick up throwout/double answer, medal and/or seniority points will be pushed into the 90+ category. I think thats going to happen more than people think.

 True but the majority of people scored in the 70s guaranteed. I see people getting bumped into the 90s but dont believe as much as people believe. I think the 90s your hearing about sound like alot but its you only hearing from people really exited about doing well on the exam and that studied their asses off. Plus you dont see that many people getting lots of seniority points like a Sgts list where cops get promoted with 15 years on lol it does not happen at the same rate. Who knows though only my two senses
