Results?

Posted

How long after completing the exam do you receive the results? The application deadline for my school's nursing program (laguardia community college) is October 20th (my birthday :p). I need to show the nursing department at my school my test results before October 20th. I was thinking of taking it early October between 10th-20th.

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

Did you have to pay extra to get test results immediately? And in what way did you get it back? Meaning, was it a visual result where you can see it but weren't able to bring a physical copy of the results? Or did they give you a piece of paper saying you received this and that?

I took my test on the computer so the results came right after I was done with the test. No I didn't pay extra.

Hypothetically speaking (or maybe something like this happened to you), let us say your school required from you, to show them your test results either the same day, or within 1-3 days after taking the test... would you have been able to do that?

So for example, you took the test on March 9th, and your school's deadline to show test results is March 10th, would you have been able to achieve that in the fashion that you received your scores (on a computer).

I also received my results immediately. Then printed them out so I could submit to my program. I can't imagine all testing sites don't work like this for TEAS.

Yes I would've been able to but it doesn't sound like a good idea. I would take the test at least a month before the deadline because what if your score isn't as high as you want it to be? You want time to study again & retest.

I got my results instantly as well (if only the NCLEX were as rapid in providing your score).

I had to take the TEAS as a paper and pencil test last year. It took two business days to get my results. Then I emailed them to the schools I was applying to. I think most places do computer tests now but just be aware there are a few sites that still do a paper test. I would call and find out which your test sites does if you are going to be cutting it close.
