George Brown College Admission Test

  1. 0
    Has anyone taken the George Brown College Admission Test for the Practical Nursing Program? I am writing the test on Saturday and just wondering what to expect. It is supposed to cover English, Math and Biology, I've been out of school for many years and have been studying like crazy, is it pretty basic stuff?

    For anyone still wondering here is the low down:

    Overall
    -
    Everything on computer
    - Leave as soon as your done
    - Not really crowded, like a regular computer lab
    - Dictionary available (I used it alot for my essay)

    Essay
    - All computerized, option to write essay on computer or handwritten (i prefer computer, correct mistakes, brainstorm type faster)
    - No spell check on essay, use custom writing software
    - 75 Minutes
    - Quality matters, they do not force word count
    - After 75 minutes, the software will submit the essay for you.
    - Option to brainstorm on paper/in mind before you click "start" to start the 75 minute timer to actually write the essay.

    Math
    - Untimed
    - Simple gr 12 questions around 17 or so.
    - Worded in application/real life style.
    - Can use windows calculator only, not yours

    Science (Human only)
    - Either you know the answers or you don't
    - Review physiology including glands, and the basics

    Easiest
    - ESL Listening test, and answer some MC questions.
    - Untimed

    Tricky
    -
    Mini essay editing, select any sentence, replace with new sentence if needed.
    - You can miss a few

    Were all the questions multiple choice (with the exception of the essay, of course)? How long did it take you to complete the whole test? Do you get to choose which test (math, english, science) you would like to take first. If you have any additional information, it would be greatly appreciated it. I have to write this test and they recommended to write it in the morning because it takes a long time to finish. Unfortunately, I already scheduled for the afternoon, so I only have 2.5 hours before the place closes down. Thanks.

    Hey Bluer,

    did you get in for the RPN program at George Brown? I'm doing my assessment test and I need some help on what to concentrate on especially the science part.
