I took the Nclex for the 2nd time and it stopped at 80.

  1. Background.
    i failed the Nclex in the first try with 149 questions. I believed it was because of the lack of strategies. And also because I needed to review some of the content. I only did one book! For the 2nd time I prepared with La charity, learning extension and kaplan(book)
    I just took the Nclex for the 2nd time, it stopped with 80 questions.
    And feel nauseous and sick. I dont know if i passed or not!! What a horrible feeling! if i failed it means that i did worst that the very first time! How come the computer let me go to 149 the first time and not the second time!?
    On the other hand, I can not tell and be 100% positive that I passed. I did not Get many Sata, i got like 6-8!! That worries me a alittle! Its saturday and i must wait until monday for the results.. i am even afraid of doing the trick!!

    My questions to myself ( and to you lol) if i failed, how come i did worst the second time than the first time!! I studied way more for the second time!!!

    i will keep you posted!

    I thought there was a Pearson "trick" where you attempt to sign up for the test again. If it doesn't allow you to sign up, you've passed. (That's what my nurse friends have said anyway)

    There is a trick, if you don't want to wait. but might be better if you do wait for your definite results.
    Good luck!

    Ehhh, it tends to be wrong because people don't do it correctly or they do it too early. But I think you should just wait

    The wait is killing me slowly!! I toook it at 2pm on Saturday and it is 10am Monday and nothing. Usually my board have them ready the next day in the morning.
