    Hey Erica, I'm thinking of applying for the bridge program too, but the Plymouth campus. I have to take the accuplacer too, I haven't applied yet or even started thinking of the accuplacer yet because I'm finishing up micro at my local CC, hopefully in a few weeks I'll start to study for that. I had to take the TEAS for my school so I don't know if the accuplacer is similar or not. Good luck!!

    Hi Ericad85- If you have the iPhone you can find the official Accuplacer preparation app. Others have said that it's around $2 and well worth it. I don't have iPhone but there are a few sample practice/guides out there. Here are some that I found pretty useful:

    If you go to the link below you'll see where it says "upcoming changes to the admissions policies for selected programs"Quincy College

    I think they're switching to the TEAS V & they're also looking at your pre-req grades & I think there's an essay too. Also, they're taking into account work experience & if you've taken classes at QC. It seems to be more comprehensive than the way they do it now. The only drawback would be that you have to study for the TEAS, but I'd rather have to study than take the accuplacer that seems to have limited 'studying' materials available.

    Thanks aj207. I wouldn't have found that information myself. The point system makes a lot of sense though but definite requires a lot more work to apply.

    Keep in mind that these admissions changes would go into effect for the cohort applying for the Full time Fall 2013 program. So anyone applying for the part time program starting in January 2013 is still only going to have to take the Accuplacer.

    Oh, nice to see all the activity on this thread. I'm applying to Bunker Hill and Quincy for a Jan 2013 start. I am taking A&P and Chemistry right now, busy busy! And I will try to knock out a couple more courses in the fall. I think Bunker Hill is my 1st choice because it's closer to me and also although I could do either, I'd prefer to do a daytime program. The only drawback with Bunker Hill is that darned TEAS - ugh - not looking forward to that! Has anyone here taken it yet and how did you do?

    Good luck with Bunker Hill. Quincy is my first choice because of the part-time program and proximity to my house. I have only taken the Reading portion of TEAS once for massasoit and got an 85.7% adjusted score. I don't think TEAS is that bad depending on your strengths. It is time consuming because there are 4 subjects to study for, and it's annoying if you're already busy with work or classes.

    Have you taken the accuplacer yet and how did you do? I submitted my application last week so I'm just waiting and really hoping to get in.
