    Vebb...no fear...keep it at excitement! We can do this!!! Rae, no worries...wait ur 60 days and retake it. Simple as that. I didn't pass my first time around either. But use ur first test for the experience. Now u know what to expect and brush up on for ur second go 'round. (Or 3rd or 4th or 5th...whatever it takes!). Keep working. It'll happen. ;o)

    Hey!! Passed the psb at Shadyside woohoo. My scores were relatively good (mid 70's and 80's....88 in math) but science was at the 52nd percentile they all needed to be above 50 so I got the letter stating for me to apply but I'm worried my scores are not high enough. I have a bachelor of science degree in computer science also. I might apply and sign up to take the psb exam again while I wait? I would lose 50$ but it is worth it when considering I can become an RN!!!! Any suggestions? I know for a fact I can achieve a higher score in the science section...take in to account that I did not take A&P or bio....taking 3 courses at CCAC this summer....thanks!!!

    I honestly don't think they look at the scores just as long as you pass everything I had a low score in reading 52 I think and I still got in.

    Anyone know how concerned they are with transcripts when you apply? I took some classes back in 2011 but I stopped going to class and failed them all. I'm back in school this semester re taking all I those classes. Should I wait for this semester to be over to send in my application?
