77 good or bad?

  1. I took NCLEX this morning and it shut down at 77 questions. I did the Pearson Vue trick about 3 hours after I was done and it popped up as "good" but as everyone does Im having serious doubts! I know there were a number that I definitely knew, and no questions left me completely blank. Good/bad signs? This is more my anxiety speaking any anything else Has anyone heard of people failing with 77 questions?

    Number of questions doesn't mean anything. yes people have failed with 77 questions and yes they have passed with 77 questions. All it means is the test shut off before going for 78 questions but after 76 questions. It's not a sign of anything. At least it's over right? Good luck!

    Thank you! I needed that reality check I've just been thinking about this and it's really helped me. Also, I've been thinking how the algorithm decided at 77 questions it could determine if I passed or fsiled. I felt fairly confident on quite a few questions so I should take that as a good sign, right? Thank you again!

    You're welcome :-)

    Think of it this way you either did really well because you only got a few more questions than the minimum. Or you did really really sucky awful and failed nearly immediately. Seriously, which way do you think it went? Be honest with yourself and you know how it went :-)

    I'm hoping for well! Either way I'll post my result here as soon as I know! I hate reading these threads and not knowing how things turned out.
