Has anyone stopped at 85 and failed?

  1. i took the nclex and stopped at 85.. i know its uncertain if i passed or not based on the amount of questions.. just curious to know how many out there passed and failed at 85?:spin:

    You can't tell whether you passed or failed the NCLEX based on the number of questions.

    We sympathize with you, but there is just no way for us to predict your result. Generally, the odds of passing are in the candidate's favor - and greatly in the candidate's favor if he/she is a US-educated, first-time tester - regardless of where the exam cuts off. Good luck! Let us know what happens.

    People have stopped at all numbers, and passed. People have stopped at all numbers and failed.

    Passing depends on the level of difficulty you are able to achieve, not the number of questions you do it in.

    Best of luck waiting for your results!

    I failed at 85 the second time. You either do good or really bad. So I did really bad=(. But I have a fren who stopped at 85 and passed. So..... who knows. The number of questions doesn't help w/ knowing if you passed or not. Just pray that you did, hehe. Good luck to you!
