Do people really pass after 265 Questions-NCLEX - page 5

Ok. Now I'm really frustrated. I was sitting in that room for over 3 hours and watching the questions count all the way to 265. I was the last person to leave. I'm not feeling very confident. I know... Read More

    Hi!
    Yes, it's very possible to get all the 265 questions and pass!!!
    I took my NCLEX on the 16th of June. I got all the 265 questions and it took me 4 hours. I was sure I failed because I had many pharm questions and lots of questions on priority and "select all that apply". On Tuesday my husband wakes me up at 8:30 am and says "hey, guess what? you passed the exam" and I thought he was joking. But he wasn't! I looked on the computer and he had the bsn.ca website on and it said my name on it! RN!!! WOW!!! It's the 30th already and I received my license a few days ago and I still can't believe that I passed!!! Praise God because I couldn't have done it without His help!
    PS-I had to retake a few of my ATI's because I didn't get the passing score in nursing school... and I graduated a year ago!

    Yes, u can pass with all 265. I was told 2 things from my nurse educator: it looks at the last 60 questions and that a student from every test time anonymously gets all 265! Two co-workers who were classmates together both passed, one got 75 the other 265.

    Thanks for the encouragement i have not passed all my ATI's either the first time. That worried me because NCLEX is so important.

    Kaplan explains very well how the Nclex works. They say in their books that you start out a fraction below a line. So, imagine you have a line that is labled 0, then you have a dot that is labeled +1 and one below the line that is labled -1. You start out at -1. So when you get a question right that is just basic knowledge, you stay at -1, but if you get an application, or analyse question right you now shifted to 0. So, each question works you either up, keeps you at the same level or lowers you.

    Next, if you have 75 questions and passed. This means that you consitently stayed above that line. However, if you had 75 questions and you did not pass, that means that you remained below the line and they say in kaplan that if you fail with 75 questions that does not mean that you "almost passed" it means you really need to hit the books and study, because you never pullled high enough up.

    However, they say if you answered 265 questions, this translate that you skimmed around that 0 line and you went up and down. Your bad luck woud be that your very last question was below the line and when that happens they go back a certain amount of questions. and if all those questions were above the line you still pass, however if just one of them went down the line, you will not pass. Oh, but if you answered 265 questions and you very last question was correct, you automatically passed.

    Its hard to explain this, but draw a line and label it and you know what I mean.

    what is the pearson trick?
  11. by   SusanneCollins13
    It is explained on these pages. Make sure you do it correctly and that the status reads "Delivery Successful" before you check. You have to be logged in to do it. Just put in pearsonvue trick and the page should pop up and how to do it on one of these pages.
