I scored a 70% on the oral interview, it didn't tell me my ranking. Am I pretty much screw?

No you're not screwed,

Remember ...

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”
― Thomas A. Edison


Well what does that mean? It means you'll be fine,just work harder.

Welcome aboard...:)

Some quotes from a man in another era: Winston Churchill

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

"To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often."

“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”

“Character may be manifested in the great moments, but it is made in the small ones.”

"Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality that guarantees all the others."

“If you are going through hell, keep going.”

Yeah, you should be willing to work for way less.

Always a good plan for a strong financial future.:thumbsup:

They never told me my test score but im sure I aced the test.

Just found out Im 500 out of 750 people on the waiting list, no way im getting in..
What about your interview do you feel went wrong?

I was going to say try other avenues to get into the trade if your test was bad, but, seeing as how you are confident that you tested well maybe you just need to work on your interview skills.

What do they ask you at the oral interview?

Seems odd that he did well on the written, but not the oral.

Maybe hes a good electrician but not good around people.
