The admissions test for the PN program is not easy, but I found that the Pre-Health program REALLY helped me. I attempted the test once in 2008 (before the Pre-Health program) and failed (the thing with me is that I only took the mandatory Gr. 9&10 sciences in HS, and nothing more, so I was totally unprepared...). So in the '09-'10 I took the Pre-Health program and in the middle of the second semester took the admissions test for PN. this was my only way to get into the PN program. The other way is through the GPA list (the top 20 GPA's get into the PN program without having to do the PN admissions test, that's 20 people out of the entire program, and that's like 4-5 classes making the lowest
of the 20 GPAs that cam possible get into the PN program a 3.5 - 3.8!!! I don't know the exact GPA, i varies every semester.) So the more sure way of getting into the PN program is through the admissions test. For me, it was necessary to take the Pre-Health Science program to succeed in the PN admission test. A lot of the Semester 1 Math, Bio, and a little Chem is on the test. There was also a lot of Anatomy from semester 2. Don't ask me for the exact questions, because I wouldn't give them to you, and I don't remember most of them, but even if I did I wouldn't give them, because it would compromise the integrity of the test, and wouldn't be fair! As for the GPA mine was good in the first semester, and in the second semester after I got into the PN I got lazy, and it wet down, technically after you get into the PN trough the admission test you don't have to complete the Pre-Health program, but I just wanted to so I dragged myself the rest of the program, passed all courses, but my GPA sucked.
As far as I remember the admission test consists of:
-An essay component.
-A listening component.
-A editing component, where you have to correct some sentences for grammar
If English is not your first language, or you're just having difficulty with it, work on your spelling, grammar and essay structure and composition skills. They use a special software for the essay where you won't have access to spell check
or the internet. A dictionary will be provided for the essay part.
-Mostly Pre-Algebra stuff. A basic windows calculator will be provided.
-Basic human biology, anatomy and a bit of physiology.
