i know the number.....

  1. I know the number of questions answered doesn't mean a hill of beans, but what is the percentage that someone who answers say 205 questions before the machine cuts off actually passes the NCLEX?

    It really means nothing ..... a number is a number. It's just either pass or fail I'm afraid. Best of luck to you!!! Hang in there.

    The machine stops when it can determine with 95% accuracy that you are above the passing standard. At that point, a test taker is getting 50% of the questions right.

    Does that make sense?

    I've learned that number of questions means absolutely nothing. You have as good a chance as anyone- and 85% pass- so good luck!

    hi it was a friend of mine who had the 205 questions and she did pass. I took mine 9-11 and passed.
