My nclex and Kaplan! Dont stress too much on scores.

  1. I took nclex on Friday{07/19}. I do not have good scores like others. My scores
    Diagnostic-48
    QT 1-54
    QT 2-61
    QT 3-52
    QT 4-52
    QT 5-49
    QT 6-54
    QT 7- 50
    Readiness- 61 took this rite after taking QT 1
    Q bank finished with 52%

    Just wanna say don't focus too much on scores. I have been visiting this site whole summer. Every time I come here I get scared looking at other people's scores and go into picnic mode thinking I am dumb. So those of you who didn't get good scores don't worry. Just pay attention when you are doing questions and while reviewing look up topics you don't know about!

    Do not panic! You can do it! You have survived nursing school you will also cross this hurdle. You are smart! Good luck.

    Ps: I can see my license no on website. Does that mean I passed?

    congrats!!!! Congrats to all New RN's. This is sure a great accomplishment. I hope I feel as happy and excited as you guys in two weeks when I sit down for my boards. I am as well doing Kaplan and Lacharity. Do you think that Kaplan is very similar to NCLEX or easier? By the way if you can see your name, YES that means you passed (responding to the P.S.). Enjoy!

    Kaplan is setup the same way as NCLEX. So once your screen will turn on you will see the same screen you saw on your computer I remember saying to myself.... "You are at home, you are taking another Kaplan test practice"

    Also, there were questions I felt like I saw them before. Or maybe they were just asking the same but questions was worded differently?

    I knew I am not going to know everything so I had to find the way to try answer correctly without knowing the correct answer Kaplan helped me with it. I did qBank and all those questions were higher application style.

    Good luck!

    2 - 73
    3- 58
    4 - 74
    5 - 61

    I got very similar scores with a 72% on both QT6 and QT7; these are very much similar to how the NCLEX was. I took the NCLEX on Saturday and passed in 75 questions...I found the test to be very similar to Kaplan and even found some of if easy. Based on your scores I think you will feel the same.

    I didn't have q trainers. Only qBank. My average was 61%. I passed with 116 questions.
    You will do great!
    Good luck!

    For me personally, I only used Kaplan. The kaplan screen is exactly the same as whats on real nclex that made it a little better when I was taking nclex. I found kaplan and NCLEX some what same. But SATA's are def easier on nclex. You will do great. Study smart. Good luck.

    Believe or not I did the entire 265 questions. I was freaking out so much so that I didnt even take a break (would not recommend that to others). Sat there for literally 5 hours and 55 minutes. Thats why I promised my self that if I pass nclex I will def write something for those who are freaking out because of kaplan score.
