    Hi Geisy,

    You could still retake the TEAS after 30 days, which is allowed in a year... I'm still planning to retake it though...

    Good luck to you too. Is it only two times that you can take the teas, or 3 in one year. I's taken it twice already. first time got 69.3, last time 75%. I thought i had another chance

    I think you've already used up all your options for now...unless your first TEAS was taken a year ago...

    The TEAS can only be take once within 30 days and twice a year. I took mine last week to give me another chance to retake it before the September 1 deadline. I scored alright so I applied last week. Good luck.

    Hi everyone! I plan on applying by September 1st but was curious to know how one goes about calculating their overall score.

    From another post on here:

    "to calculate your score multiply your gpa by 10. then multiply your TEAS by .6. add them together and that total is out of 100. the top however many students with highest numebrs are gonna be who get in.
    ex. if you have a 3.0 and 90% on TEAS to have 30+54(the Teas 90x.6) which is a competitive score of 84. The point 6 comes from the test being worth 60% and the GPA being worth 40%."
