    It depends on the school I suppose and their requirements.

    Most programs have a minimum requirement for the TEAS. It would probably be good to check on the minimums from the program you are interested in applying to. Good luck!

    I may be wrong, but I don't think that is a competitive score for most programs.
    I would take it again, but before you do make sure you have reviewed sufficiently to raise your score.

    The national mean when I took it (end of May) was 64.3. The people who are accepted into most college programs score above average, which makes sense, since there are generally more applicants than class slots.

    If you're thinking about applying to a program that uses the TEAS V as a criterion, I strongly suggest you focus on the parts of the test that gave you trouble, and do some solid weeks of studying before attempting the test again.

    There are threads on this site that discuss strategies for studying for the TEAS. Search for them.

    You also have to realize not everyone takes the same test. I took it with another girl in the room so to prevent cheating, we took completely different tests. So the average on one test may be different than another. If you are concerned though, I would take it again. :]

    Yeah everyone gets a different version of the exam, but your score is adjusted based on the difficulty of your particular exam. There's some sort of formula that ATI uses, you can find it on one of the pages of your test score
