Congrats to you on your success! I too feel the same way about the test. I walked in there today, hoping to get 75 questions, and when it shut off at 75 I wanted to cry. I wonder now, would I have felt better at 140 questions? or 100 for that matter? Or 265? Nope. I was going to freak out either way. Win-Win like you said.
I did the "trick", and I can not re-register. I am praying that is a good sign. I tried it immediately after leaving the testing center, and again just now. Same pop up. I am trying to stay calm but I am a testing wreck, and I have been since high school. Nursing school
was worse. I would have panic after a test until I knew my results, and ya know what? Even if I did not do good, I was relieved. Just knowing, pass or fail, I was OK. Of course, I felt better on the tests I did well, but you know what I mean.
So I will continue to breathe, and I might take a bubble bath tonight to relax. I am tense and sore everywhere.
