Shut off at 75

  1. i took the nclex today and it shut off at 75...i cried to my husband all the way home... i got a lot of prioritizing questions in the begining and thought i was doing okay but as i hit the 60s i felt the questions were getting a bit easier the at 72 it started getting harder but i just feel i really failed because of this....anyone pass and got pretty easy (in your opinion) questions at the end????

    Actually I got easy questions all the way to 75. There were a bit that confused me but the majority of them were straight forward. I don't know why everyone freaks out after NCLEX? It's not that bad...... when you receive your passing grade you'll understand me. Take it slow...... your done...... no more studying..... YOU DID GREAT. :spin: The hard part is waiting....... GOOD LUCK!

    YOUR TEST SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE MINE! I ALSO CRIED TO MY HUSBAND ALL THE WAY HOME. WE GOT LOST TWICE BECAUSE OF THIS. I SHOULD GET MY RESULTS IN A FEW DAYS. I HOPE WE BOTH HAVE HAPPY ENDINGS! I AM TIRED OF .

    I remember freaking out when my computer shut off after the minimum 75 questions: "But I'm not done yet!!" :uhoh21: I thought OMG, the past four years of my life have been all about arriving at this moment, and then it's over and done in less than half an hour and I think I've really blown it......I passed, though. The vast majority of people who get only the minimum # of questions do pass the NCLEX, so take it easy........you did fine.

    Hope this helps.

    Well I got over 140, does that mean I failed?

    what about that whole mess about the computer determines when your getting 50% right 50% wrong!!! and this needs to be above passing... i wouldn't have gotten such easy questions if i was doing well. nclex doesnt really make sense to me....what if you were doing okay (above passing) then at the end u screw up??? then what??? (i got about 10 recall type of questions near the end, thats what i meant by easy...)Thanks for the support though... i really appreciate it...

    I am going through the same agony. The test shut off at 75 for me too and I have absolutely no feeling about whether I passed or not. I took it yesterday. Will keep you in my prayers tonight and you do the same for me, Ok?

    i also have a friend who shut off her computer when she reached 75. she also thought she failed, but of course it's the other way around, because she passed!

    it's a good thing you have a husband :kiss, that can lighten your day..

    Remember folks, the number of questions has no meaning whatsoever. It's just a number.

    Good luck to everyone.
