I am taking the entrance exam next month and it sucks because the entrance exam is no longer the HESI test for reading, math and vocab. It is a kaplan test for reading, writing and math now and there is no study guide like the... Read More

    Anyone else have results on the Kaplan for Carrington Reno. The test was alot more difficult than I anticipated. I heard today that so far only 50% of the those who have tested thus far have "passed". The Hesi was much easier to gage how you did, knowing mid to high 90's gave you a pretty solid chance at acceptance. From what I can find the national avg is 60.8%. I'm not feeling very confident. Just curious what other people scored. My avg was 79% which I was shocked to find was "passing" score. Any feedback is helpful. Thanks and good luck to everyone!

    From what I've heard the Kaplan is quite a bit more difficult than the Hesi. I know other schools usually have averages around a 73%. Another person said anything above 60 is considered a good score and that anything in the 80s is rare.

    Do you mind me asking who you heard the 50% from? It's so exhausting to sit around and wait for any little bit of information, that statistic made me feel a little better about my score! Haha

    The advisor at Carrington told me 50% thus far have failed. I got the national average from google! LOL I've been obsessing over it because I feel like I know nothing. The whole admissions process is frustrating. I have a B.S. in Health and a Master's in Healthcare Administration which means nothing to my admittance. I've never been a very good test taker, I did my best and hopfully it was enough. Happy waiting everyone, and best of luck!
