Tn tech LPN program
- 0Dec 6, '10 by pcarter2324Has anyone on here taking the compass test and failed one part of it and still been accepted into the program. I have taken the test twice I passed the math part with flying colors the first time. So on the second time I only had to retake the reading portion. You must make an 80 to even to even qualify for the program and both times I made 74 its just basic reading and answering questions. So im not sure why this is so difficult for me I do plan to retake in january. I am tryin very hard not to get discouraged and give up because becoming a nurse is all that I have ever wanted. So any advice,help, comments would be helpful. Thanks

My lowest scores have always been in reading comprehension. I am starting nursing school in January and dread the hours of reading required-it's like I have to read the pages over and over again to understand because I get distracted easily or lose interest-not because I can't understand the material. I think it is anxiety before an exam-if you can get that under control you will do fine. Because you are passionate you will succeed.
- 0Dec 28, '10 by pcarter2324Thanks for the encouraging words. The funny thing is I have always did very well in reading, math was my worse subject but I passed the math the first time with flying colors. I think i get bored after reading the long passages because im not failing with by much the minimum you must make is an 80, the first time i made a 74 and the second time a 79. I think I just need to take my time read every passage more than once if I have to and answer the questions. This is the only thing holding me back and I want it so bad.
