# MATH-PERCENTILES

I JUST TOOK A TEAS TEST(FOR PRACTICAL NURSING ADMISSIONS). THE REQUIREMENTS MUST BE A GRADE IN AT LEAST THE 40TH PERCENTILE IN EACH SUBJECT. THERE WAS A MATH, READING,ENGLISH, AND SCIENCE SECTION.
TOTAL OF QUESTIONS WERE 170.MATH-45? READING-40? ENGLISH-55 ? SCIENCE-30 ?

I WAS JUST WONDERING IF ANYONE KNEW HOW TO FIGURE OUT ABOUT HOW MANY QUESTIONS IN EACH CATERGORY I WOULD HAVE NEEDED TO GET CORRECT.

AND ALSO, ON THE PRACTICE TEST I RECEIVED A 72% AS A TOTAL GRADE (MATH-85.2% READING-81.8% SCIENCE-44.4%
ENGLISH 69.7%).....WHAT PERCENTILE ARE ALL OF THESE?

DOES YOUR TOTAL GRADE(72%) REFLECT AN AVERAGE PERCENTILE?
IS THE PERCENTILE AFFECTED BY HTE OTHER STUDENTS SCORES(LIKE A WEIGHTED GRADE?)

1. Typically the percentile cannot be determined exactly from the percent of items correct. The percentiles are detemined by where your score lies in relation to a distribution of scores by peers who have taken the same test. In a normal distribution, the 50th percentile would be the mean score obtained.

I searched Google under the key words "Teas test percentiles" to get these possible sources:

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
