265 and freaking out!!!!!

  1. I've read a million of the posts with ppl who went up to 265 and passed, but boy did I have a day today. My test was scheduled for 9am, I reached pearson vue an hour early, was a lilttle nervous, but ok. It wasn't until 75 came and went did I begin to panick!!!!! Then I was offered a break and declined, then came 150.....175, and at 200 I lost hope, but talked myself into staying focused, as I came to the realization that it was going to be all 265 ques! A total of 5 hours. I wanted to DIE! In 2005 I took the PN boards and stopped at the mininum 85 ques, don't get me wrong I was still worried, put I passed.

    I never anticipated sitting there for 5 hours with 265 ques. I just knew it was over. All my hard work down the drain, I FAILED! I walked out of the building and froze out front crying uncontrollably. Now the horrific 48 hour wait, but if it's really bussiness days then it would actually not be ready on Sunday...but on Tuesday. There's now way I can possibly stay sane that long. I don't know what to do. I know passing is possible, but I had about 12 SATA, I couldn't believe how many of those popped up. The ques all started looking the same after about 3 hours! I want to stay positive, but I'm soooooo freaking out right now. To make matters worse I went on pearson vue and it says the status is ready to display :angryfire. What the hell does that mean? I've never heard anyone mention that on any of the million posts I've read. Sorry for the ridiculously long post, but I really needed to vent.

    Try to stay positive, I know it's hard .... but it's over now. Try to go out and just enjoy the fact it's over and done with. You'll know soon enough. I'm sure you did just fine. Go do something nice for yourself. Hang in there!!

    your story is the same as one of my buddies who passed at 265.... exact to the "T"

    Don't freak out anymore, and I know it's hard to do, because when someone told me that.. I couldn't do it.... but reality is that you have to wait 48hrs and pay the $7.95 to pearson where it says "quick results" then you click on it, then it will tell you your status.

    Right now, when I took mine, I was very sad and already planning my study schedule... again...

    then 2 days later I found out I passed.

    It can go either way for you, just like my friend who passed!

    Thank you, I'm trying to stay optimistic. I believe that God is good, and if it was written for me to pass, then I did. Funny enough, I was wondering where the hell do I start, when I begin studying again.

    Hey I really relate to your story 100% , i took the test on dec 11, 2007 and i found out today that i passed; i got 265 questions and i was there for 5 hours, after two hours i also felt that all the questions were similar! and i got 15 SATA and my last question was also a SATA so I was very worried about not passing because i thought i answered the last question wrong but i passed so i am very happy, i wish you the best =)
