UTMB Fall 2013 - page 3

hello! I searched the site and seen no one made a topic about the people trying to enter in Fall 2013 so here is it :up: I am applying to UTMB for Fall 2013. I've written my personal statement and... Read More

    I submitted my app to NursingCas as soon as the semester was over, and I'm pretty sure they've received my transcripts, just haven't processed them yet...ugh. Stupid form. Tessthebest, I just took the TEAS V a few days ago...the math and reading are sections are easy: simple math, as for the reading, pay attention to what they are asking, it seems pretty tricky. You're going to be mad when I say this, but there is no way to study for the science section. All the questions are completely random, and it's up in the air. Had a question that asked me what serum is made of--I have never learned that, that I can recall. So just go over what you can. For the English section, know simple grammar rules. I hope this helped.

    CCtech, what did you make on your science section. and would you say it was mainly chemistry, or anatomy, or biology or etc? i really don't know how to prepare myself for this test. I brought the Mcgraw hill 5 practice test and i brought the ATI study guide but will that be enough to make well over a 70%

    jshanice11,

    My science score was awful compared to my other scores. Embarrassed to say it but I got like, a 52% on the science section. As far as what is mostly on there, I would say there's more bio questions; there's a handful of chem, a handful of A&P, maybe two physics question, and one geology. For the books, they are both wonderful. The Mcgraw-Hill Practice test book is really good. Do those practice tests! I would say the reading is slightly more difficult than the book, but the science is on point as far as the randomness goes. Math is the same, and grammar is the same. Just focus on the science more than anything. The ATI book is great for studying, it goes in-depth into the sections. If you do well on at least three of the sections, you should be fine with over 70%. If you have anymore questions let me know!

    Tessthebest, you are not allowed to use a calculator on the math section. I strongly advise looking back over multiplying decimals and fraction rules and whatnot.

    I just submitted my application today. I have a sinking feeling that this is too late. Has anyone else left it this late?

    i submitted mine about a week and a half ago but they just received all my transcripts that i sent off about 2 weeks ago and processed my gpa calculation, so i think you have time. as long as you submitted before the 15th.

    cctech thank you so much i was really worried about the science section but all i can do is my best. i heard the reading section was a little challenging also would you agree?

    Hi,
    Would my transcript still be received even though I haven't submitted my NursingCAS application yet? (I am still waiting on references to put on it that a nursing school is requiring and their deadline is feb 1, however). I gave the nursingCAS transcript request to my school a few weeks ago, and my application still shows that no transcripts have been received yet.

    The math is so simple you don't even need a calculator, and that's coming from me--I suck at math! Yes, it is time-consuming, which is the point of a calculator, but I guess they want to make sure they don't take on complete idiots, you know? Luckily on the HESI A2 you can use a calculator, and I'll be taking that mid-January.

    jshanice11, yes, the reading was a little difficult, and I consider myself to be well-rounded in reading and English subjects. You have to pay attention to the most minute of details, I even had to write some stuff down to make sure it was the right answer. Read the question twice, just to make absolutely sure of what they're asking.

    I submitted my app mid-December and they've only received one of my three transcripts, and I know I sent them off in an orderly fashion, and I know they've been sent because all my other schools that I've applied to got them. I tried calling, but they're not really any help, they can't even tell you if they've been received, so I'm getting kind of nervous, too; I hope they receive them this week.

    jh408 you don't have to pay in order for them to receive your transcripts, just when they do, submit your payment so they can send it off, you want them to get this done as quickly as possible.

    I got an 88% on the reading section, I was so sure I was going to get 100%, so stay focused on the passages, they do get kind of boring. Don't let your mind wander! When do you take it?

    they should still receive it since the quick status menu is available even before you submit your application. its the holidays so it might take a little longer. but it should show up soon

    cctech if you take your time on the reading, will you run of out time or is it unlikely?

    jshanice,

    It is very possible. I had like three minutes left by the time I got to my last question of the reading section, I was freaking out; but I'm a fast reader and I'm able to recall certain things when I read, others may not be. So I would do as much as you possibly can. If you don't know something mark what you think is the answer (just in case you DO run out of time so you can have a chance to get it right) and come back to it; don't just sit there and waste three minutes on one question. Process of elimination. Try not to focus on the time so much, just pretend it's like the most interesting passage you've ever read and you'll do fine. I recall one passage talking about the city water system, and another talking about snow blowers, and explaining what kind of engines were in them, blah, blah, blah. They put that stuff in there so you will lose focus, but don't allow that to happen!

    Submitted my completed application a few days ago. The only thing that I am concerned about is the TEAS testing. My score was a 79%, which to me doesn't seem good, but someone was telling me the thing to look at is the placement. Basic, Advanced, Exemplary. My score was in the "Advanced" category. Has anyone else heard of this?

    I'm taking my test Friday and ill be so happy if I make a 79% the passing rate is 58% and I think the national average is about 63% I'm sure if your gpa and your supplemental essay is good you will be accepted, try not to stress about it, what's going to happen will happen! Good luck I just hope I can do okay on this teas test I really should have studied harder!
