Average TEAS V Score? Your score?

Took the TEAS V.

I got a 78. I thought oh, no. That's awful. I hadn't studied a lick, so it's better than I'd expected...for not knowing what to expect.

When I told the admissions office I got a 78, they're jaws nearly hit the floor. Apparently, the average score at my campus is between 50 and 54.

Have you guys found the same to be true? How'd you do?

I just took it on the 6th and got a 76%. Same thing here, the admissions office said I did great and need to go to a competitive school rather then stay on their wait list... It made me feel good, but can you imagine not passing now that you've taken it?! Its easier then I expected and they give you so much time to finish! Im so happy it's behind me now and it deff gave me a confidence boost

I also got a 78 and when I first saw it I was worried that I didnt pass. After asking the testing center that was administering the test they said I did very good. I was so worried about the test being timed but I moved forward with the other sections before time was even up. I took the test last Feb and was just accepted into my program that starts in Aug. I believe the average score for my school was 60-64. Congrats on passing the test

My Advisor told me that I need to score atleats an 85 on the TEAS to be competitive for admission...

Is that for the version IV or verion V? At my school the results for version IV had to be in the 80's but they switched to version V which have to be in the 60's or higher. Every school is different.

Is that for the version IV or version V test? At my school 80's was competitive for version IV but they switched to version V and I believe somewhere in the mid 60's to high 60's is competitive for that version. Every school is different though.

I got a 64 and Thats good enough for my school!

I got an 86 and was recently accepted into the program with the V, but I know the average is around 62 for my school which is highly competitive.

I got the same thing and it was good enough for my school too

I need a score above 85 on the TEAS V to be competitive for admission

just curious what schools are you all appling for? would it be nctc? and what program, lvn, etc.?

I took the TEAS V in May and got a 78.7. Since the national average is a 64 I am hoping that is good enough to get into the BSN program I will be applying to. I don't know the average score of the program but everyone I have talked to said I got a really good score.

I got a 74 on teas test!! That was enough to get me into LPN program for the fall!!!

I got a 66 on my TEAS, I got a 94% on the reading and I knew they didn't care about the Science portion (they had told me that when I first applied to the school) so I could have tried a bit harder for that. At my school they look for a 45 I believe it is on every section and I got over that on every one. Also ranked in program I was in the top 20% and my score was above average compared to the national data as well. I walked out feeling like a failure even though they both looked at my scores online and said "Wow you did really good!" To me it wasn't a good score since I had just graduated from a state university with a 3.95 GPA, maybe my brain was too overloaded, who knows haha. Anyways, I got accepted and start in September!

I got an 83% I believe which put me in the 84th percentile for my school, and I was accepted with that score

I received a 78 on the teas v exam I took yesterday. I'm applying for a BSN program.

You guys all did great I studied and my first try I got a 55%. I'm not a good standardized test taking but got a 3.6 gpa in my pre-reqs. I am going to take it again and I'm so nervous. I feel defeated by this freaking exam ugggh. Any suggestions?

I got a 93 overall on the TEAS. I studied like a maniac the week before I took the exam. Buy the ATI study guide AND the two online practice exams. From my experience, the practice exams in the book were easier than the real thing, and the online practice exams were was harder than the real thing (I got a 72 on the online practice).

I know that a lot of the people that I took the test with had a specific TEAS Test book to study from but I actually used the Kaplan TEAS Test book and I used some youtube videos to help me brush up on my math, think it was teassecrets.com. I scored a 78 on the version V exam but it had a lot more chemistry on it then I was prepared for. I would suggest to look at the print out you got from the test and see which areas were scored the lowest and brush up on them. You will get it

just curious what schools are you all appling for? would it be nctc? and what program, lvn, etc.?
i scored a 78 on the version v test in feb 2012 and i applied at a local community college where i was accpeted into their program starting this fall it is a 2 year bridge program, the first year is lpn and the second year is rn. i can't wait!!

I got an 87.8. I believe the average was a 66, although I don't know where they were pulling the average from (school, state, etc). I know my program (ADN) only considered those who got an 80 or above.

I consider myself an intelligent person. I took the TEAS V and got a 50 overall. Time was a big factor. I need to retake it. Half the testers were given calculators, and there were not enough for us all. I didn't bring my own because I was told we couldn't use them. I was tuored in math to freshen up for a month!! The science well most who knew that could get a job at NASA! I see here so many with 80% or 90%. I would think you pass an MCAT if this monster of a test is so easy, or I am less inteligent than I though! Very worried about retake!!!

I got a 67.7 School average is a 56. Not proud of my score but I got into the program.

CONGRATULATIONS

I got an 83 on it and was accepted into my competitive entry BSN program.

82.7 overall score on my TEAS V and was accepted into a competitive program.

Got an 80.7 my first try...looks like I'm retaking it! oops

I need around mid-80's as well to be considered competitive for UH Hilo

I needed a 75+ to get the maximum number of points and I passed with an 89.3%.

I don't think the test material itself is hard but you have to master the test taking style. You really have to get a study guide (I used the ATI TEAS V study guide). Sure, you may be great at math, English, and science, but if you're not familiar with the test style it will show in your score. So that's my advice. Go through the entire study guide, take the practice tests, and learn to understand the logic of the test.

Of all the sections, I think the science is the most straight forward. It's a case of either knowing it or not. And you should know most of it if you've taken bio, chem, micro, and a&p.

Time management is another huge factor since you may know everything but if you've got 10 questions left when they call the time, then you're out of luck.

I took the TEAS V today. I made a 90.7. I didn't study for it, but taking chemistry this summer was helpful to review for the few Chem questions. Except a few questions on the science portion, I think everything on the test should have been learned in high school.

On the result page, it states that the national mean is 64.3% and my program average was 64.9%. My school requires a 58.7%, and a higher score adds nothing extra to your chance of admission.

I took the TEAS-V a couple days ago and got a 92. I only used the ATI study guide and the online practice tests! I'm super relieved because I'm applying to a BSN program where the higher the TEAS score, the better.

I took it last year and got an 84%. That was a good enough score for my ASN program and most people in my school were at or above 80%. There were a few with straight A's that got a high 70% score and made it in but it's not real likely. Good job!

Well I got 75 and when I went for my nursing interview she told me she didn't need to ask me anything apparently I scored highest out of 48 people that took it and the next below me was 60 I was like dang to me it wasn't hard at all.

I scored a 60.4% my first try in April. I studied the ATI study guide and found a friend who knew chemistry to show me what I was doing wrong. Retook the TEAS in July and scored an 80.7. I'm happy with that for sure. That is a big jump for me! I was in the 99th percentile of my program, which sounds promising, but I will not know if I got accepted into my LPN program until October.

I got a 68.7. I'm really upset as I know that this probably won't be good enough to get into the LPN program at my school. I think I would be ok but I don't really feel that my study guide for the TEAS helped at all. I got the ATI teas book. Any others that may prove MORE helpful??

You should try the McGraw-Hill 5 Practice Tests book.

Does it have more helpful information than the TEAS V study guide because I felt like that was useless.

I got an 87.3 on the TEAS V, on July 26th 2012. I think it was easier than the online samples you get online with the ATI TEAS V workbook. Totally worth what it costs to get the actual TEAS V book from ATI AND STUDY it.

Best of luck to all the applicants and nursing students!

As we all can see, the score needed for one school might put you at the head of the class of another school, or simply deny you admission.

And the weight given the TEAS score also varies a lot, we must assume.

I took this out of town (summer offerings are fewer), where apparently 'passing' is 50% for, I think, an LPN program. Where I'm applying, 67% is minimum passing, and I've been told those accepted score in the 80's & 90's.

So, despite my mid-80's score, I'm redoing it, looking for smth in the 90's.

As with much life experience, "it's all relative."

I'm taking tomorrow. Any tips on what to review for chemistry? Please and thank you.

FutureNurse114 I sent you a PM.

My overall score was a 92.7. I used the ATI TEAS V study guide and practice tests to prepare, which I think helped quite a bit.

When the ATI scores come out, when it says "Program average" or "Program percentile" is that for YOUR SCHOOL you are applying at? So when it said I was in the 99th percentile at the Program, it meant I was really good compared to other scores at my school? For what the past year? I know the "National average" is for the entire nation.
I am just curious as to if my 80.7% (99th percentile program average) is good for my program...
If anyone had this explained to them, if you could explain it to me. I just want to make sure I understand it correctly.

CallieNM, the "progam", I believe, is for the type of program nation wide that you are applying for: i.e.: LPN, ADN, BSN. Not for your particular school. Hope this helps!

Good luck to you!

Hi guys,

Are you allowed to use a calculator on the TEAS exam? I know you are not allowed to bring one with you, but are you allowed to use the computer calculator?

No calculator use, but it is basic stuff: long division, multiplication, fractions, decimals, %, conversions (know ur metric to metric conversions; they will give u conversion factors if u r converting from metric to std or std to metric).

Good luck!

Hi guys,

Nope, no calculator.

I just took TEAS V and got a 94.7%. Pretty excited about the result. You should have seen the employees at the testing center...

I need a 64 too, what was the breakdown of each section so I know what i need in each section to get that score.

What school takes 64? Are you going for your BSN?

I just took my TEAS yesterday. When I finished, the proctor's assistant came up to me and said, "You got an overall of 86%!" She acted as if it was a big deal. I said "That's great" and I was thinking, a B, great. Well when I looked up the results, nationally that's in the 97th percentile. First I took the practice exam in the study manual, then I read the study manual and took the 2 practice exams offered online. And I did horribly on those exams but it gave me some focus. I also read the study suggestions posted here by rainbowvahmet Thanks!
