Me too! They start making calls this week. ??? What did you score on your Kaplan, if you don’t mind me asking?

My score was around 280. Not sure if my Kaplan score is good enough. This week has been a waiting game. Haven't received a call about getting in or not. Very overwhelmed. My friend got a 250 and got in a couple years ago. But, again that was years back. Will be waiting...

I think you’ll get in! I got a 282 and I got my acceptance call on Friday. Keep me updated! I bet you’ll get a call this week ??

Hi everyone,

I am thinking to apply for the RN program but I have so many questions.

How do you take the entrance exam (online or in-person )? If it is online does anyone know if it is a proctored exam?

Also, is the program focused on assignments or tests? Essays or multiple-choice questions?

Thank you

Im hoping to test in January for the May class 2021. I have been using the Kaplan study book and I hope that the time I have will pay off for a good score. Does anyone have any advise on the Wonderlic?

Hi!
They had a couple rounds of the Kaplan online because of COVID but I believe they are back in person now! It is a proctored exam. The Kaplan test is all multiple choice questions.

The program so far is mostly test based, except the gen ED online classes. They are more assignment based.

Hope that helps!

Hello!
I would actually recommend the GED books for the reading and math portions of the Kaplan, and SAT books for the writing portion.

If you search Wonderlic test on Google there are some websites that have sample tests. I took them repeatedly, but honestly it’s not hard. You have to get 15/50 I believe to pass.

Thank you so much. That helps a lot.

I passed my wonderlic and tomorrow I take my Kaplan exam. Any advises? I haven’t studied yet because I’m not sure what to study if it’s only English and math.
