NLN test composite formula?

  1. Does anyone know how the NLN test is weighted? I just took my first practice test and got raw scores of 46 in verbal, 38 in math and 52 in science for a total raw score of 136. I'm estimating this to possibly be in the mid-150s for composite but would like to be able to calculate it more accurately. Does anyone know the weighting factors for each category? Or perhaps your raw scores were similar?

    Not positive on my actual score, but I have my percents (my sheet is packed away because I am moving this weekend - I'll see if I can find it tonight).

    I got a 61% on my Verbal, 94% on Math and 97% on Science and got a 92% composite percent for AD which was a composite score of 133.

    Check the NLN result sticky at the top of this forum. A lot of people list their total results so you can gauge an idea of what your percentile would be.

    Mine was

    57/60 Verbal, 36/40 Math, 41/60 Science

    Composite was 148, Percentile AD was 98th.

    If you compare, you can get a good idea on what certain scores = number of correctly answered questions.
