NCLEX with 78 questions

  1. I took my test today and it ended at 78 q's and i am dead nervous. What are the chances of me failing?

    I didnot get much of factual questions, most of them were general questions.

    Damn, i am so nervous.

    Anyone failed with 78 q's?

    The odds are definitely in your favor!!! There was a person on this forum who got 79 questions and still passed. Don't worry about the number of questions. It's only a number. You can pass in any number between 75-265. And again, odds are in your favor

    While people pass and fail at all numbers, the odds are always in your favor. Check out this sticky if you haven't already:

    Aw, heck, L, once it's here on the boards I think confidentiality is out the window....unless we hope people forget what we post, lol!

    Seriously, I think I had some whoop-butt questions, so I don't think 79 was a bad number at all. I like to joke that I never get those SAP questions right, and I had four of them, so....needed four more to pass! I would have stopped breathing if I'd have had to keep up that level for another hundred or more!

    I passed with 83, number means nothing, but as someone said, the odds are in your favor. When I took the test, I figured I must of failed, to get so few questions and most of them seemed easy (at least compared to my schools exams!!) I didn't study at all. I had it already figured out, because I had so many questions and they were so easy, I had to have failed because either at 75 - 90'ish questions then it was just showing how stupid I was, and it simply didn't need to see anymore stupid answers. I was SOOOOO sure I failed I cried, it was just toooooo easy!
    2 days later - passed came up (I saved the print screen lol so I have it forever to remind me that even when I think I failed or am not doing well at something, quite probably I am doing better than I think :mortarboard:

    Have you heard anything yet in VA? I've heard results post anywhere from 24-72 hours. VA is not a quick results state. Good Luck!

    Actually I registered with Maryland board of Nursing and they told me it will be out in 48 hrs, and this wait is killing me.
