HESI Entrance Exam Scoring - Chamberlain

  1. Hi. I have a question. I have a friend who recently took the HESI entrance exam for Chamberlain in Atlanta. The receptionist calculated her score, and I want to confirm that she did it correctly (my friend got a 74.3%).

    In short, the receptionist calculated a composite score for the whole exam except the math, added it to the math, and divided by 2 (so she weighted the math section as 50% of the exam and all qualitative portions as 50% of exam).

    As might be expected, my friend was upset. Is that scoring methodology correct? The math section is not weighted equally on the full exam (which includes Sciences), so why do they weight it like that? Seems sloppy to me. If I count the sections inividually (excluding the Sciences), she got an 84%.

    Any help is appreciated.
