Placement Test

  1. Ok, I'm gonna take the placement test in August...and I was gonna ask, how many of you scored a descent score on the placement test because I know that if you dont get a college level score then you will have to take more English and Math classes.(which is not what i want to do!)I'm not too worried about English but I am worried about Math..And also another question, did you do both tests in one day?

    At my CC, you took both at the same time. If you failed any portion then you would only retake the portion that you failed.

    :heartbeatDo not worry about pass or fail on your placements. These tests are given to gage where you are. Remember, it is about building a solid foundation. You do not want to jump into the ocean if you do not know how to swim. I did well on the English exam but, chose not to take the Math. I took the Math Review class instead just to make sure that my foundation was strong and now I will move on to Algebra 1 this next semester. Good Luck to you.

    I graduated a 1 1/2 years early from high school (california proficiency exam) and took the placement tests and tested into college english and college trig... meaning the only math class I have left to take is stats. I got up to algebra 2 in high school (with a little bit of pre-calc, but that was after i took the placement test).

    If your a good student, and depending on what classes you took in high school, dont worry about it. Most nursing schools only require stats if you test into college math.

    I did great on the English but my math was horrible. I had to start at the very beginning in Math and Science, but it was a good thing because it helped in my other pre-reqs. Dont worry, it goes fast. I cant believe I start the nursing program in the fall already. Good luck...
