Hi everyone!! I applied to Southern Westchester Boces and I am scheduled to take my entrance exam next Thursday. I am looking for anyone who has attended or has recently been accepted to the school. Or even anyone who knows anything about the test and scores needed in order to get accepted. I'm getting very nervous about the exam and any advice would be appreciated. I am curious to know how students are accepted - what scores are they looking for? Thank you!

I was SO nervous, too.. Trust me! I had no other choice but to go into the test feeling confident telling myself that I'll pass! The night before, I stayed up until it was time to leave to take the test; I was studying the entire night. One only issue that I experienced with the test was the time for the math portion. Its 50 questions and they give you an hour. If you find yourself stuck on a problem, don't spend time trying to figure out. Skip it and do the easy questions first and then go back to the ones you skipped.
They said they will mail us our test scores and we will receive them in two weeks. They also said that if they happen to call us in for an interview BEFORE we receive our test scores in the mail, that means they received the scores first.. and that we scored above the 50th percentile. Scoring above the 50th percentile means that you did better than 50 percent of the national norms group. The national norms group consists of 3,408 students that were in an LPN program and were given the C-Net test to see how they scored. Our scores will be compared to their scores. If we do better than 50 percent of those students, then we will get called in for an interview. This is something you will hear on test day from whoever is proctoring your test.
Are you planning on doing the day program or evening program? Do you live around the area? Again, good luck! I'm so happy that I finally found someone else who applied!
