Average TEAS V Score? Your score? - page 6

Took the TEAS V. I got a 78. I thought oh, no. That's awful. I hadn't studied a lick, so it's better than I'd expected...for not knowing what to expect. When I told the admissions office I... Read More

    My school doesn't test science so we are not given an overall score. I've been out of school for 3 years so not exactly fresh. I did absolutely no studying whatsoever, got 85.7 reading, 90 math, 90 language. It really is not a difficult exam in any manner.

    When you guys say that you got an 80 or 66 etc. Is that 80 out of 150? or is that 80%? I am preparing to take the test, but am discouraged from my practice test results. I took it just to see where I am at and will study and then take a second practice test.

    I just took the exam yesterday. I got an overall 75.8%. I know I am above the average for the school I applied to, but they only take 50 out of the 250 applicants. I don't want to be number 51. Should I retake it? Opinions??

    There has to be a way of finding out the average of what other applicants have? The program I am applying for only takes 45, and seems like there are going to be hundreds of applicants. I took the TEAS last week and got 87%, and I am completely panicking. I will be retaking it in the Spring.

    Why would you retake it with a 87?? People hardly get that score. Good job btw!

    I don't know the scores of others applying, I REALLY don't want to miss out on a spot. My worst section was English language, so I'm going to use the next few months to brush up on that.

    Most schools want at least an 80%. That score is well above that. What was your English score?

    My English score was 75%! Haha. My spelling and grammar are pretty good, but I wouldn't recognize a verb if it jumped out at me. My other scores were (approximately) 94% reading, 92% math and 83% science.

    The program I am applying for gives bonus points if you are currently working in a health related field, which I am not. I think that is worrying me the most. I'm going to read an English Language for Dummies book, see if it makes a difference when I retest! I'll have also completed all of A&P 1 and about half of A&P 2 by March. I swear, most of my science section was glands, hormones and enzymes.

    I studied some, not too much and made an 80.0%. I really think it is super important to look over the teas study guide to get a good idea of how the questions are worded, and to know what to expect.The program I applied to requires a 63% on the teas so I am feeling confident but I wont know till after April if I got in.
