I was told about 6 alternate formats would be on NCLEX. I am just wondering what happened to my test because I kept count in my mind and had 33 SATA, 2 fill in the blank, 2 drag and drops and one lab results question. That comes out to 38 alternate format out of 75 questions. I passed and got my license in the mail last week but friends who haven't taken it keep telling me they don't believe that there was that many or that I was exaggerating... I was sick because literally every other question almost was SATA. Is this a new thing, was it a fluke? I am trying to help a friend study and I keep telling her she better get on her SATAs. Why so many?
