TEAS test scores

  1. Can someone give me a possible range of scores that Nursing schools are looking for when they give this as an admissions test. What is considered a good and bad score

    Thanks

    I took the TEAS last winter. Every school will have different minimum standards, but at the school I applied to it was 50% right on the math section, and 50% (or was it percentile?) overall. I had no problem surpassing both of these minimum requirements on the first time. The only thing about the TEAS is, at the school I applied to as well as others, you are not allowed to use a calculator for the math section. I was, however, provided with scratch paper. The English, Science, and reading sections were fairly straightforward.

    Ok, that helps alot...I bought an online assessment, and the first time I took it, it was only 67% (I didn't read most of the questions clearly) and the second time I tookk another one, I got an 87%.

    The Life Science section is what kind of got me...there were questions on there that I probably learned in high school science, and I haven't covered that material in forever.

    So they only look at certain sections?

    Actually, I made a mistake..I see what you mean, it was broken down into sections. I got a 100% on the reading, 92% on the math, 87% on the English/Grammar, and 66% on the science (the questions were very specific, either you know it or you don't). But on the science I got 100% on the reasoning.

    I had no idea of how they used these scores.
