The rcmp website states it is out of 500, but i spoke to a recruiter and she said its not but she doesn't know exactly what the number is as it is still a new process. I was wondering if anyone knew of a really high score so i can compare for reference. I also asked about the SFPQ score, she said it's not out of a hundred and that an average score was between 55-59. I'm a bit confused as a percentage score implies out of 100.
any clarification would be appreciated.
Greetings from K-Division:
There's no real emphasis on the RPAB score, from what I've learned. RPAT is the key number. I too wondered about the total score and the recruiter said not to sweat it, we're all being evaluated primarily on the RPAT exam at first stage. I have no idea on how that scale is even interpreted...tried some google searches and pokin around and haven't found much.
As a comparison, I got a higher RPAT than you, but lower SFPQ/overall RPAB score, and promptly received the selection package.
I would imagine 3.91 is solid enough to receive a kit but I read that the benchmark can vary from region to region and according to current recruiting needs. The RCMP site has the selection forms, and thus suggest familiarizing yourself with the info requirements and do some prelim gathering as it is quite a bit to plow through.
For me, got the 'package clarification call' about a week after kit submission, now awaiting final clearance to proceed to PARE and RMSI.
Good luck with your app! Fun times.
