I scheduled NCLEX in June and I took the ATI online practice assessment test. These are 150 questions, and I only got 62.8% on it. What does it mean? Does it look very bad??? I am so overwhelming about it!!
Is this practice assessment as same as the NCLEX predictor test? Who knows the passing probability of ATI scores?

Just remember you have a variety of sources to use to study, not just ATI. I have friends who used all of the ATI books, DVDs, and loved them. Myself I thought the three day review was a good overall review, but I don't think the ATI was a good predictor for everyone. I also did not care for the ATI books and DVDs, but I am a very visual learner. I think you need to find an NCLEX book
that you understand easily and take the information from the ATI that shows what you are weak in. You have plenty of time, don't stress out. I worked on my weak area for 2 days, read about the things I could not understand or remember, googled them, and took notes. I reviewed them a couple of days before the test. I did practice discs from every area, even the ones I thought I was great in over the next few weeks. I'm not sure if I passed yet, but I do feel comfortable with the fact I did everything in my power over the last few weeks to pass and did not take for granted any areas that I always aced. I gave them the same study time as the rest. You never know what subject or types of questions you will have. Good luck!! Since you are so worried I am sure you will do fine, just turn that worry into motivation.
When you are closer to NCLEX day you may want to take the NCLEX predictor again, I am sure that after studying you will pull those ATI scores up to a 70%.
Thank you. I am feeling much better now. Also, wishing you good luck!!
