The easier the questions are, the more likely you failed?

  1. 0
    Hi everyone! I took my NCLEX this morning and of course I am VERY anxious! I don't know what to think, but I am setting myself up for the absolute worst, just in case I do indeed fail. All I kept praying and hoping for was for the computer to shut off after 75 and it did! I was happy only because it was over, but I am aware that the amount of questions will not determine if you passed or failed it. So of course I come home and start torturing myself and look up answers to my questions. Whats making me freak out is that my questions weren't AS HARD as I thought they should be!!! Isn't it true that the easier the questions are, the more likely you failed? Sighhhh, I know all I can do is wait another 2days. I'm venting out my anxiety!!! I'm hoping that they didnt seem that hard was because I was prepared..they did seem easier compared to the Kaplan review questions!

    Why don't you try the pearson vue trick in the sticky above. It apparently is pretty definitive in telling you whether you passed or not.

    I took mine this morning too and unlike you, I thought it was a horrible test. I walked out knowing I failed (as did everyone else I know who has taken it) and yet I got the good pop up. Give it a try.

    I wanted to try it but hesitant to get a false reassurance, only to find out I failed on Friday! Have you met anyone that the trick hasn't been on point with?

    Nope, not yet. I have heard of one who got the CC screen but in the end actually passed, but never a false positive. I read about 10 pages of the sticky and hadn't seen one who got a false positive. I think if there was any error on the process, the mods here would have removed the thread.

    Hi! Sorry to bother you again! but I did the trick the the GOOD message popped up not allowing me to register because I have already registered. I want to freak out and cry tears of happiness but I'm still doubting it! omg, I'll post an update if the trick worked.

    If your test has been delivered successfully and are not on hold, the trick works, period. The way I see it, is you already took the test, so it is what it is. Torture yourself if you want but it's unnecessary. If you failed, not doing the trick won't change it into a pass, and you know now so you can get on with the grieving process. If you passed, you could use that extra two days to relax before your grueling job search instead of being full of necessary anxiety. Whatever you choose, good luck!
