    I have a question for those of you who are second degrees. When you log into your portal account, does it show all your grades even from your first undergrad degree or does it just show your post-bac grades? Mine only shows my post-bac grades. It does make me a little nervous, however, that I can't see all of my nurisng pre-reqs (the ones I took for my first degree).
    I don't think any grades show for 2nd degree students who have completed their degree elsewhere (aka. not TWU). Is that right?

    It surprises me that you were told they would be too busy to meet with you. Did you try Dallas or Denton? I went to Denton and didnt have any trouble getting in to see someone. I would definitely try Denton if you haven't already.

    Rha Hea, yes I'm a second degree student. I have not only a B.A. in Economics/Finance, but also a M.B.A. focussed in Marketing and International Management. But I'm done with corporate, so here I am hopefully at nursing school. Oh, and I met with Allyson, she was great and quick.

    ali523, the only thing not included on the Hesi for TWU is the Physics section. But if you are taking it for another school also then you might have the physics section on it.

    Is the critical thinking section calculated into composite score?

    i was reading about the hesi on a different discussion board and some people said they weren't allowed to use scratch paper during the test, yet others said they were. i am taking my hesi at a&m, does anyone know if you can use scratch paper?

    I took mine in Dallas, and they gave us a dry erase board and a marker. No calculators were allowed. Hope that helps!

    Yep, took mine in Dallas too and was given the dry erase board and markers. Lots of long hand division fun.

    You'll be taking yours at the general services complex right? i took mine there also....you'll receive two dry erase boards, a couple dry erase markers, and an eraser. You won't have pencil or paper...you're not allowed to bring anything inside the testing center besides your ID. Hopefully that helped you!

    the critical thinking section isn't required by TWU so it's not factored into the composite score. The sections that are required by twu are: math, reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, chemistry, biology, anatomy and physiology, personality profile, and learning style

    The critical thinking section is required by TWU. I called numerous time to confirm this. They said it is calculated into composite score. I wanted to know if it is averaged into composite score and how...????
