I’m vying for a spot on a local nursing program, didn’t study but scored well enough. I will likely retake the exam because, why not? 

My composite score was 81.3%

reading 78.7

math 87.5

science 85.1

English and Lang 70.8

I apply this fall for a spring start to a BSN program. The minimum TEAS score to be eligible to apply is 58.7%. Looks like the program mean is 70, my percentile rank is 82. There is a rubric that gives points for “proficient “, “advanced”, and “excellent” also points for scoring above 71 in reading and above 67 in math. I have the reading, math and “advanced” points. 

I’ll  probably re-sit the exam. But, wanted to hear where other scored and if it was good enough to get in. I emailed an advisor asking if 87 (assumption that I score better)advanced matters over an 81 advanced, but have yet to get a reply. 

What do you think?

What campus are you applying for?  What were your scores on the pre reqs?  For Ivy Tech they take your Teas and add that to the points you get from the pre reqs.  So for me, since I got all A's in the pre reqs gave me 60 points.  And i scored 77.3 on Teas for a total of 137.3.  For the ivy tech nursing programs it seems like anybody with a 140 or better is pretty much guaranteed to get accepted.  An 81.3 on Teas is really good!

@clintonjohnson13 Thanks for the reply. 


I am applying to East Central University in Ada ok. Also TWU in Denton, but I doubt I have much of a chance as I just discovered that I need all of the prerequisite classes to apply, before applying. I did schedule a meeting to see if I can get a waiver.


ECU has a rubric that totals 106 points, I have 85. My program GPA is 3.68 and my retention GPA is 3.40 ( yes, I poo pooed some classes). 


I have scheduled to retake the teas. I’ll feel better that I gave it my best try and didn’t just “hope” I make it with the 81, even though it will not afford me any more points. 

I appreciate your vote that the 81 is fair! Thanks!


eta I lack microbiology to apply to TWU. I also don’t get the points on the ECU rubric for not having had it. But, that’s fair since other students will probably also be finishing up a class or two, I hope.
