    Hi there,
    I rememer seeing some statistics in the bulletin that they send you with your authorization to test. I can't remember what they were, but I thought it was something like 82% with an 85 pass the test. My computer also shut off with an 85 and I passed. Good luck to you!

    well if it's anything like the RN exam either you did really well or you totally failed - the computer would have kept giving you more questions to test your competency...how do you think you did?

    My classmate who was historically a poor test taker took the whole 3? hours. Mine shut off at 85 and I was a good test taker and even though I was confident, I felt that there are basically two wrong answers, a med to right answer then classic right answers and they are looking for very bottomline unsafe practicioners-very hard to do if you used elimination and critical thinking. Good Luck!

    I took the boards in MA 5 years ago. My computer shut off after 75 questions, and I passed. The majority of the other graduates I know who took the boards also had their computers shut off after 75 questions and they passed. The only fails I heard of took 3-plus hours of questions.
    Good Luck!
