I know all the factual stuff about how you can't tell if you've passed or failed the NCLEX by the number of questions, but I'm just curious if anybody knows anyone who's failed with 75 questions. I... Read More

    CONGRATS!!!
    I was wondering the same thing. I also got 75 questions, but I am still waiting for my results. I took my test 7/18 and the state has still not posted the results. (I think I'll just vomit on my keyboard).
    Congrats again. Louise, R.N. (looks good!)

    I took boards today and it stopped at 75.

    I know that I got some answers right, but I did a lot of guessing!
    Does anyone know how many you can get wrong and still pass at 75? I heard that if you fail at 75 you get most of the answers wrong, but I don't know if this is true or not. I guess I don't want to get my hopes up JUST IN CASE.

    Hi Melissa,

    I took my exam on a tues(june 25th)and found out that Sat. that I passed . I notice that you are from CT too, so it shouldn't take too long to find out. Do you know about the site www.ct-clic.com? It is only updated once a week though. I actually got my results in the mail and it wasn't online until the following week. I know how hectic it is to wait You know, they say that you can't tell if you passed or not based on the number of questions but I still think that if the computer shut off at 75 then you passed. Otherwise, you would of been asked more questions???
    I know it doesn't help any but I'm going to say it anyways, lol.......RELAX, the worse is over. Good Luck!

    I am FREAKING out here!
    I feel like typing out the questions that I remember and asking you guys.

    But I won't, or that will probalby push me over the edge if I find out I answered wrong....

    Take it easy Melissa. But how in the world can you even remember some of those questions. I was in such a daze afterward i couldnt have remembered anything but what the jest of the questions was.
    You most likely did fine.
    Congrats to all the rest who have passed. Go forth and Heal.

    congratulations on passing! I myself just passed last week and also had 75 questions, so I know how nerve-racking it was!

    And Melissa, son't worry. I went home crying because I thought I failed... I felt like I had to guess on so many questions, and when it shut off at 75 my heart dropped. But I ended up doing just fine and I'm sure you did too!

    Melissa,
    I took my boards on 7/12/02. My test stopped at 75 questions as well. When i got home i looked up everything in my nursing books and found that i made a ton of mistakes. I left feeling i had failed. Today i recieved my RN license. I think it is very likely that you passed with flying colors. Just think, passing with 75 questions shows that your knowledge is way above the minimum requirements!!!!!!!

    Good luck. Let us know how you did. Christel
