I still working on QT 5,6 and 7
Thanks for ask
I don't mean to freak you out, i'm just being real. first off let me say, Kaplan wants you to score at least 60%
on QT 6 and 7 and all QBank TIMED (not tutored) tests because they are written at the application/analysis level. these are the passing level questions, if you didn't know already.
High 50s are good, but 60s are better. 60s keep you ABOVE the passing standard with room for error, meaning you can get some wrong and still be above the passing standard. 50s don't leave you much room for error.
QT 1-5 need to be at least 65%.
Your scores from QT 1-4 are decreasing. 63>65>60>55. maybe long tests are burning you out? idk but its okay tho! this is normal. and like i said high 50s are good!! just keep taking long tests and you will build your tolerance!
If I may quote @St_Claire, she shared with me some tips from Kaplan and I've gotten a lot better in my quizzes (granted i've been studying my butt off since february):
- Lab values will be presented as very high or very low from normal ranges. (Kaplan and NCLEX)
- You are expected to miss about half the questions. (Kaplan and NCLEX)
- The more SATA questions you see (during the NCLEX) the better you are doing because those are higher level questions that keep you above the line. (Kaplan QT6 and 7 and all QBank questions are passing level questions.)
- If you can get the first 6 right you will stay way above the line. (getting 6 in a row correct on the Kaplan practice tests is reflective of being "way above the NCLEX passing standard")
- On the NCLEX, if you get a question very similar to one you have already answered stop and think a little more before you answer, the test is trying to clarify that you know it so you may have answered incorrectly before. (Kaplan practice tests are not CATs - computer adaptive tests. You're given random passing level questions.)
SLOW DOWN, BREATHE, and THINK. good luck! <3
