About the 473 Postal Exam
Due to the limited experience requirements for postal service hirees, the USPS administers an online exam to screen potential applicants. This exam, the 473E, tests the postal service applicant on the skill set required to be a postal employee. You must take the exam within 7 days of applying for a position with the postal service, and this score will be used to evaluate your candidacy for any Postal position. A minimum score of 70 out of 100 is required to be considered. You cannot retake the postal exam to improve your score for at least 30 days after the first administration of the exam.
