    I don't know what that meant...
    But it seem to me you passed everything....
    Are you waiting to be interviewed....
    Anyhow, good luck to whatever you do in the future.

    Hi, Elaine!

    What it means is that you scored a 93 in Math, a 96 in Reading, an 84 in Science, and a 91 in English. Every school interprets these scores the way they feel meets their own purposes. So, it is totally up to the LPN program that you applied to as to what they do with them. They will determine whether or not your scores are within a certain range that they have decided is the best predictor of success in their program. If your scores meet their requirements, then I'm sure you'll be hearing from them.

    when I took my test they told me I had to score in the 80th percentile on 3 out of 4 sections. It sounds like you did fine . You will get a score sheet from the school you took your test from and they will write Pass on the top if you did well enough. Hope this helps!

    i already know that I passed but I am just wondering if my scores are going to be good enough to get in it is a very competive program

    In my program the scores did not matter it was strictly Pass/Fail on this test. At my CC they add this score to other factors, including overall GPA and grades in Sciences and Math Prereqs. They look at the whole student, do you skip class, have you completed more of the prereqs than the required 12 hour minimum, that kind of thing. Some of it is just fate or luck or God, because I wasn't sure I would get in but I did. Hope this helps!

    well I just found out that I am number 49 on the list and they only take 40 I still have to wait because there are some more people that have not taken the teas so I may be an alternate but we all know that is not good so I am really down now it is not official that is what the counselor told me but the letters have not gone out yet
