National Mean and National Percentile Average?

I just took the TEAS a few days ago. Confused by the national mean and national percentile average? How can I be sure that my school will accept these scores? I feel like the test went horribly and wondering if I should retake it before I apply to my ADN program. My scores are as follows:

Overall: 70%

Reading: 68.1%, National Mean: 72.4, PR: 39

Math: 81.3%, National Mean: 68.6%, PR: 75

Science: 61.7%, National Mean: 57.2%, PR: 66

English/Language: 75.0%, National Mean: 66.3%, PR: 79

Can someone explain this? Would you retake if you were in my position?

your reading score was lower than the national average, your math was higher (good job!), science was higher (excellent!!), and english/language was higher(!!) how competitive the program you're interested in and what their minimum scores are would decide if you should take it again.

Thanks for the reply and the info! This has been super helpful. My school has recently been accepting students with average teas scores around 70-75% so I'm hopeful I'll get in. However, it's pretty competitive being that about 150 apply and only 50 are accepted annually.

That's pretty much the same boat i am in. i made a 90 overall on my teas, 97 reading and 96 math, but i also have two dwis from 2017. completed rehab and all that jazz, but it's a rather competitive school too. and with my history i am stressed about getting in. if i do, then i have to worry about getting licensed and blah blah blah. im praying for the best. i'll be praying for your entrance too! 🙂
