TEAS 6 EXAM

  1. I am so worried. I scored 88% on the TEAS exam on my first attempt and I have a 3.9 GPA. Should I retake the TEAS exam? Or is that competetive enough

    What isn't competitive about a 3.9 GPA and a 88% TEAS score?

    I think you should, if you try a little more then maybe you'll get to the level. Or dont they take the highest grade?

    Look at the average scores for those accepted in the program you plan to apply to, if they have that info available. 88% is going to be competitive for a lot of programs.

    I'm trying to apply to sac state and most people apply with around 90% TEAS score and most have 4.0 GPAS. I'm worried if I take it again I'll just get a lower score but I'm also torn with setting with an 88% when I apply.

    Does the school take your most recent score or your highest score? If it's the latter, then there's no reason not to retake if you need around a 90% to be safe. If it's the former, it might depend on if you missed the same type of question that you could figure out and be able to get right on the next attempt. The science is the only section I'd be a bit weary about just because your score on that will depend entirely on the portions of A&P they test on for that attempt, so your science score might change depending on your knowledge and the questions asked.

    They take the highest score you get. That's true the science section is so broad that they can ask almost anything about it in the TEAS. I'll schedule for a retake next month and hopefully I get a 90%. Thank you so much for your help!

    Looks like the school employs a point system and you should be able to calculate your points. If you look at the stats, your GPA & TEAS are still well within the range of accepted students. But they're changing the system soon, so you just won't know exactly how it'll play out. To be honest, there is really no difference between a 3.9 and 4.0, and likewise an 88% and 90%.

    I understand that this might not be feasible, but applying to more than one school will highly increase your chance of success.
