NCLEX-PN Math questions

  1. 0 Hey Everyone, I am new here and I just completed taking the NCLEX exam. My computer shut off at 85 questions. Although, I got a few math questions I know I got wrong b/c I checked them after testing. We all know that there is no exception to med errors in nursing. This is probably a bad sign for me hu? I thought the test was extremly hard and I feel I failed. I had to guess like half the questions. Any and all opinions welcome

    Please allow me to help you feel better.

    I took my test 3.5 weeks ago, I know darn well I missed 2 math questions because I could not figure out for the life of me how to convert. I know how to do it but it seems like I went stupid.

    Anyway, my comp also shut off at 85 and I passed!! I thought there was no way in hell they would pass me after failing both those questions ( i got the first one wrong so they threw another back at me and i missed it again ). But stranger things have happened lol.

    Good Luck....I really hope you passed.

    Wow, that's good news! I have researched the entire internet to try to see if there was anyone else in my boat! Glad to see it's true... I guess I just have to wait. It was mortified when they kept throwing me the same question! I should have known, but nerves got the better of me! Thanks again for sharing!

    I must say that it has been a year and a half since I sat for my LPN boards, and just when I was going to look to see what number I was on the computer shut off. I know I was close to 85 but not sure if I was at 85 or at 86 or 87. Anyway, I came out of that testing room sure I had passed. I said I either passed the test with flying colors or bombed it really well. One must remember to breathe through out the test, and yes its entirely possible to pass it even though it shut off @ 85! Think possitve.

    Where do you live and how fast do you get your results. I was so sick it was ridiculous. Lucky, our state puts a license number up at 8am the next day.

    Be sure to let us know.

    I'd say, try to relax. I know thats easy to say & hard to do. I was a very good student & also got 85 questions. I felt that the test was very hard &, honestly was really shocked. I had about 5 math questions & know I missed one. The others were easy. I also got around 20, "choose all that apply" & I always have problems with them.

    I passed, thank God. My teachers told us that if you get 85 questions, you either did very well & passed or extremely bad & failed. Frankly, I've never talked to anyone who failed at 85. I think you'd know if you did that bad. Remember, the test is not testing to see if you are proficient in this information. You are being tested to see if you know enough for an entry level position, one where you will be expected to be learning while working.

    I don't envy you your long wait. It seems like California could be a bit more efficient in getting back your results.

    Sorry, I forgot to include the fact that here in Montana, results are posted rather quickly. I did pass the test, but was a nervous wreck waiting the three or so days it took to post. Good Luck on waiting the long wait.
