TEAS Should I take it again?

Students General Students


Took it today and did well *I think* but dont really have any other scores to compare it to. My school is now going by your raw scores in math & science added together and the highest of these get a seat. This is the first time they are doing this so even the academic advisors had no advice to give me on if my scores were 'good enough' or I should try again. Im thinking I may give it another try and take the top score just for the heck of it. Anyway, I would like some feedback on my math & science scores, would you retake? Do you think I may have a chance? There are like 300 applicants every semester for 50 seats.

Math Adjusted Individual score: 82.2%

Science Adjusted Individual score: 83.3%

The English and Reading sections you only are required to pass, which I believe is a 60%, and I did, but anything over that isnt really considered for getting in.

There will also be 3 points added to this because I got the A in A&P I.

My application is due Oct 1st so Im pretty sure I will retake, just looking for some feedback here. Thanks!

If you have the opportunity to retake the test and the school is willing to take the higher grade of either attempt, I would say definately go for it! I took the TEAS this past spring and passed with a 89% composite score. This was the average for last semster as was my gpa. I knew I was taking a bit of a risk by not at least trying to raise my TEAS score, but I decided to just go with what I had. Thankfully, I was accepted for this coming fall, but my friend who had the same gpa as me but a TEAS score of 87% was listed as an alternate. Thankfully, she was able to get a spot as well, but man I must have been cutting it close! I would be really kicking myself in the you-know-what had I not been accepted, knowing fully well I had the opportunity to take the test again and get a higher score.

Good luck in whatever you decide!!
