    There were a few in my class that shut off in 110 - 115 area and both passed. I forgot to look where you are from, but you'll find out in a few days, unless you're in Cali, in which case it will take about 3 weeks.
    Don't beat yourself up....just hang and wait for the results....nothing you can do.
    Keep the faith!

    Also, if you go to LPN Corner and do a search for NCLEX topics, you'll get boosted from the threads and see the agony of waiting for most has a happy ending....good luck!

    A girl in my class computer cut off on 130 and she passed. I just took mine this past Tuesday and I had to take all 205. You're talking about stressed out what do you think.

    Did you all have the some of the new format questions on the test?

    Also what is the time from from your date of graduation until you took your test?

    I'm going to be finished April 1 so I'm getting a bit ansy!

    I graduated in Oct, took the exam in Jan, got the results in Feb. Working in March. It takes a while.
    There were supposed to be some new format questions, but I didn't get any. I don't know of anyone else in my class that did either, and someone just took theirs the other day.
    Hope that helps!

    Dont worry take the time to relax mine turned off after the 85th question. The test is not set up like you would think it isnt 70 out of and you pass. You have to meet the minimum requirements for each area...Med Surge Maternity Geriatrics ect. once you have it turns off now if the comp thinks that there is no way that you are going to pass and hit all the mins req. it will also shut off. so really there is no way of knowing if you passes or not. so just sit back and wait for your results and let us know if you passes or not! Good luck!

    computer turning off at 110 is both good and bad. good because your test is done. bad because now you'll be stressed from waiting.

    I passed NCLEX-PN with 85 questions. One of my friends passed and had 125, and another friend passed and got all 200+! I really don't think the number of questions you get indicates if you passed or not.

    The furst few of us, from my class, stopped @ 85, no new format questions, one simple dosage calc.

    Some of the rest of us were all over the place, on number of questions. So far, all od us that I have heard of passed.
