Thanks and much appreciated Metricalpound. Just scared that my scores are not good enough to get into schools. Thanks again.
Oh just one more question, which percentiles do schools look at?
Your scores should be good enough to get into schools - I had similar scores and got into a pretty good nursing program with a 100% pass rate in the NCLEX...let's just hope that I can get through it lol. It all depends on the scores of the people that also apply with you and their grades in the classes or whatever else the school has you do. Usually these scores are just a subset of what they are expecting from you to see if you are a good candidate for their school.
Usually schools look at the 4 composite scores and they usually have a lowest grade they would accept in each subject and a lowest grade for the composite.. So, for instance, a person may get a 99 in science, a 99 in math but a 73 in verbal and not be accepted because they didn't "pass" the verbal portion of the test. I also know many people that "passed" each subject but couldn't get in because they had too low of an overall composite score.
Also remember that each point higher you have in the composite score is harder to get - they are not equal. So there is less of a difference between a 76 and a 77 than a 92 and a 93. Each point up is harder to get than the one that came before it. I got almost every science and verbal question right and I couldn't crack past 98 for both of them. For math, I got about half of the questions correct and I got a 78 - I barely "passed" math. My composite was a 138.
That's why you have such solid scores - you cracked 90 in all three subjects, you got better than a 120 on your overall composite grade. You should be able to get into any nursing school if you have decent grades in your pre-reqs or whatever else they judge by.
