Okay so i have applied for the 2014 september lpn program. I took the placement to test and passed the pre algebra with 66 and algebra part with 38 bairly a passing score but she said it didnt matter much just passing the pre algebra did. In the reading i got 87. My question is should i consider retaking it to get a higher score? They only accept the top percent ( 20-25 students) and i am not sure if thats considered a decent score to be in the top percent. If you attended this school what did you score so i can compare and decide if i need to study more and retake it. Also any advice for me if i do get in? Any personal thoughts about this school? Thanks for all the help

As you say, they accept the highest scores, so you need to determine if your scores would be in that range in the past few groups.
Call the admissions counselor and ask. I'm in the Hartsville program and the AC couldn't be a nicer guy. If your AC won't give you a hint as to whether your numbers are competitive, call another TCAT and ask. You don't have to identify yourself, and you're not asking for privileged information.
If you don't want to call around, then my advice is to retake the test. You'll do better just from the lessened anxiety - you know what it's like now. And take your time! You've got virtually all day to take it, so do the math twice! Re-reread all your reading! Plan on spending four hours there, and when you finish in three, you'll feel good.
Are you talking about COMPASS (I assume not because there's just "Math" and "Reading" sections on that as far as I know) so I can't tell you about actual number scores. Did you take HESI?

i also took the test at covington but still missed the reading sections the ladies in the office told me i need to make at least a 90 on reading to even get accepted so goodluck if you do get accepted i retest in 2weeks hopefully i make exactly a 90
. also if you feel comfortable with memphis locations try and transfer your scores if you really pushing for the lpn program. keep us updated
