I took the Teas V and passed. I ran out of time on two sections which drastically brought down my score to a 66.7%. I lost track of time on the very first section (Reading) and never regained my momentum or composure. I am so disappointed and discouraged. I am so nervous about whether I will get accepted. I have a 3.84 GPA and 3 out of 4 first attempt A's (A&P I/II, Microbiology). I was told by my nursing advisor that I needed to get an overall score of "80" to be guaranteed acceptance. Has anyone been accepted to TWU's nursing school
with a test score of 66.7%? Unfortunately, I can only take the Teas once per application period. I will be devastated to not get accepted because I have worked so hard to get good grades and prepare for the Teas. Also, I have some friends that I took all my pre-req's with and we developed a study group. We were all hoping that we would go through nursing school together and maintain our study group.

If you have a hardcopy of the results and stats (or it may be on the ATI site or wherever you purchased the TEAS test), there should be a national average column. You might just have beat the national average, which is good in itself.
I don't know how TWU scores the overall admissions candidate, but there are probably more criteria that should level out with your TEAS V grade (Your GPA is good, and you've done well in the core science classes, which is a big plus).
Did you apply to other nursing schools
as well? Some require only 1 section of the TEAS V, others require the HESI, etc.
