Average KAPLAN scores and passed NCLEX

  1. 31
    I just want to post this for the people who were in my position. I have never had so much anxiety before. When i did Kaplan i felt they have very good strategies. But I was very scared because I did not get really good scores.

    My diagnotic test was a 58% and the Kaplan people said it should be around 65. My question trainers were very bad.

    QT1 49%
    QT2 48%
    QT3 49%
    QT4 49%
    QT5 52%
    QT6 54%
    QT7 58%

    Never got to that 65%

    My q bank average was 55%

    I just want to tell those people who feel like they aren't doing good enough that its ok. Just keep doing question read every rationale and even why the answer is wrong! This helped me out much better than just reading or watching the videos.

    If you took the Kaplan class i suggest you also watch the videos of the questions because the video told me info that the kaplan teacher forgot to mention.

    Do all the Qbanks and go over all the rationales. I though I was going to fail, my test stopped at 75. So I thought "yep I failed!" I did not have that much confidence. So please I hope this gives some of you a peace of mind that you can do it. Oh and just in case your wondering Kaplan was the only review course I took.

    Good luck to everyone and I hope you all pass.

    Thank you for listening!

    Thanks for the info! I have been doing practice exams (Kaplan, NCSBN, etc.) and usually manage 65% - 70%. I have no idea what that equates to in terms of passing the NCLEX, but you made me feel a lot better. Thanks!

    And congrats on passing!

    Thank you for being so encouraging!!! I am using strictly Kaplan and I feel like I'm learning more, getting more critical thinking based, etc. but my scores scores aren't changing that much. I'll keep plugging away with Kaplan!

    Congrats, Nurse!
