I'm looking for information regarding scores on the Nursing entrance exam called the RNEE test(published by the Psychological Corporation.
I did above the average which was 55 % on the reading, biology anatomy, physical science I was 1 point short of a 55.
The math I did horrable!!! I did so bad I'm totally embaressed I recieved a 15 , which is extremly low. I froze when I came to the math section.
My verbal was a 77%, reading was a 68% my life science was a 68 % my physical science was a 54% and the math Ugh a 15%.
I need no less then a 40% in each of the above subjects to get into one nursing school and another nursing school requires a 55% in each subject. My composite score was a 67%, a 55% composite was required at one Nursing school another required a 40% composite score. My composite score are fine. My math Ugh!!!
I can do the math and get the correct answers to math problems on the RNEE test its just that when it comes to doing math on a time limit I freeze because I know I'm very slow and I'm afraid I won't have enough time to do the whole test. I just get scared and confused and then circled anything to finish.
I actulally can not think of what I need to do or even what I'm looking for in the math problemwhen I freeze up during math test.
I have good grades I averaged a GPA of 4.0. I even passed statistics with a finale grade of a C/ 75, low but passed.
I will of course have to retake the Nursing Entrance exam the RNEE test, but after I do pass my concern is how will a School of Nursing view my records of the Nursing Entrance exam when they see the how low I scored in math the first time I took the Enrtance test?
My math score was a 15 % compared to a passing grade, that being no less the 55%.
I would very much appreciate feedback. I'm so very worried about my scores especialy math . I do not usually go around comparing notes on grades because I think its a personal matter to a large degree , but at this point I would really apprecieate feedback.

Thank you for response and I certainly will take your advice and purchase a baic math book/text. However I'em unfamiliar with the acronym IMHO. Would you be so kind as to clarify that for me.
